Just had a great conversation with Dick B. He wants one of us to attend this event in Maine, Sept 6 and 7.
He said he has several medical doctors and psychiatrists coming who are strong Christians and full of enthusiasm for AA and its Christian roots. All are in recovery.
Dick B wants to introduce them to ISAAC and the strong network we have in 70 nations.

Because of the medical professionals attending, it seems that you would be the ideal person they could really relate to. Not often they have the chance to be with a man with your breadth of experience as a professional addictionologist and a much accomplished Christian leader.
I know the AACC conference is in September also.

What do you think?
