A member may bring onto the premise a person under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, for purposes set down heretofore, however, it shall be the direct responsibility of said member to supervise and monitor the behavior of such intoxicated person; in any event, the member bringing said intoxicated individual onto the premises, hereby accepts and assumes full and complete responsibility for said individual.


All persons not members of the Club, shall have no right to be on the premises of the corporation, or use the facilities of the Clubroom except for a reasonable time before and after scheduled 12 step meetings.

Any member guilty of misconduct, as defined by (d), (e), or (f) above, may be expelled from the Clubroom immediately, by any one member of the Board of Directors, or their designated agent, pending hearing of the alleged misconduct, which shall be conducted within ten (10) days of the date thereof.  Such member, upon hearing may be expelled or suspended from membership, the Clubroom, and meetings of recovery held in Club facilities, by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.  The action to be taken shall be at the sole discretion of said Board of Directors.
