Difficulty with Area 53 Website and Area 53 page in Conscious Contact

  • Attempted to post CFC Meeting Schedule and Workshop Info on Area 53 page of Conscious Contact.
  • Apparently these items do not meet current criteria for publication. I am told that this was a decision of the Area Committee so intend to raise the issue at the next meeting.
  • In the process of trying to find Officer responsible for Area 53 page in Conscious Contact, I was frustrated by the limitations inherent in the website. All efforts to reach officers through website are essentially e-mails. Since I was working near a deadline, this obstacle to direct communication created lots of stress.
