Reaching out to the LASCYPAA Advisory Council allows Advisory to know there is a new bid and the Outreach chair along with other members to help you through out the year. Setting up an initial meeting with a few people is a great first step in generating enthusiasm for starting a bid. You can reach out individually or announce this at your home group, district or Private AA groups on Facebook to find people in your area interested in bidding for LASCYPAA.
The initial meeting will be to discuss next steps and planning elections. This should help anyone interested in bidding for LASCYPAA. This document uses the combined knowledge of members on the Advisory Council on the next steps for those wanting to start a bid. More information can be found online at www.lascypaa.com After your initial meeting, the group should decide a date and location to hold elections. You should spend about 30 days outreaching elections to make sure as many people in your area know that you are bidding for LASCYPAA. You will be electing positions based on the suggested positions found here. Reach out to Advisory to see if someone is available in your area to facilitate elections. Set location for elections at a neural location like a meeting place or clubhouse. Apart of having a bid committee is holding events and demonstrating to Advisory you can operate like a host committee. Holding events can help raise money to demonstrate you are self supporting as a bid. Helping out the current host committee through outreaching LASCYPAA is also a great way to act as a host committee.
There are 13 bid requirements which will be complied into a bid book. The bid requirements show the bid is ready to host LASCYPAA.
