What is a "Meeting Anchor"?
The "anchor of the day" shows up on time and makes sure the meeting gets started. The anchor doesn't have to lead the meeting. You just need to show up and then direct whoever wishes to lead on where to find the format.
It doesn't happen often, but sometimes you arrive and find yourself alone. If this is the case, you start the meeting and keep going, pasting in the format by yourself, talking to your own version of 'higherpower'. Starting meetings on time is part of our recovery. Procrastinators are often latecomers, so you know that other PA members will arrive soon and you won't be alone. If you build it, they will come.
We decided in the PA business meeting that the same person doesn't have to anchor each week. Hence a sign-up sheet. This is where to sign up if you would like to anchor. Just reply to the post for the week you want to anchor (and remember to do it!!!).
If you are new to PA, you too can anchor! All you need to do is to show up on time and make sure the meeting happens.
MEETING FORMAT: Our meeting format is at the following link:
This sign-up sheet goes from Feb through April, 2012 (plus the start of May).
A new sign-up sheet will be posted at the beginning of May 2012.
Please sign up and show up so we can keep this wonderful resource going!
