Area 86 Newsletter – The Focus

Submit An Article

The Focus is a newsletter published by Area 86 twice a year.  It contains a series of articles written by Area 86 members on a variety of service related topics. It is made available to DCMs for distribution to the groups in each District. It is intended to be used as a communication tool across the whole of Area 86, though recent reports are that too few groups are actually seeing a copy of our newsletter.  Comments on this matter are as welcome as submissions for the newsletter itself.  Submit Feedback.
