District Business Meeting - All Members are Welcome

This is the monthly business meeting for our district and is not a regular Al-Anon meeting for sharing. The Minutes Archive are available on this site in the Members-Only area.

In-person Option for Attendance

Dear Fellow Service Members!

The District 8 Meeting is exploring being hybrid; both in-person and virtual (Zoom). The Meeting ID for those attending remote is: 805 234 3000; no passcode. For those fully vaccinated and feeling safe to attend in person meetings, the address is: Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 909 N La Cumbre Rd. Santa Barbara. CA 93110; Meet in Friendship Hall; doors will be propped open by 6pm. Hope to see you there in the flesh or via zoom screen!!

I met with Trinity last week and they extended us an invitation to meet in person and see how it feels to be in the rooms again, be there in part or as some continue to meet via zoom and transition slowly at a pace that is comfortable for us as a district and for the autonomous meetings to consider going forward!

In Service and Humbletood,


Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church
909 North La Cumbre Road (at Foothill Road)
Santa Barbara, California 93110
