WHAT I LEARNED: 1. Near the end of 2012, this Guideline was expanded to be more inclusive of Alateen meetings & it was divided into 2 sections: G-8a which are several lists of questions, & G-8b “Methods & Reflections” – which offer “how-to” suggestions on taking the inventory & more importantly… following up on the results. It’s easy to see why this is one of my most requested Guidelines!
2. After reading all the questions, there seems to be a repeating pattern of respect & service… As a group, what do we do? What do we have? And are we helping others by giving it away? They also have personal questions that center around “How am I contributing?” Back when my home group did our inventory (anonymously of course), attendance shot up because we were all curious to see what everyone else really thought!
**BONUS: An electronic version of this guideline can now be downloaded directly from the District 6 website by clicking this link: District 6 Website
**DOUBLE BONUS: At 4 pages long, this item is tied with “Reserve Fund Guideline” (item # G-41), but which Guideline beats them all with 8 total pages? (Hint: see item # G-34!)
