Flag OT Committee Meeting Minutes
17 March 2014
Kaye Champagne, Chairman welcomed attendees. Kaye reported that the International OT Committee Convention had been a huge success, and that we had received many comments that it had been the best one ever. There were 330 in attendance from 22 countries, representing 72 different OT Committees. Kaye validated Mary Alice DeWitt, Dir OTC Events for “working tirelessly” on the convention and Mary Alice received a round of applause. Mary Alice in turn validated Marguerite Bowen, OT Operations Officer FSO for being the “queen of all this as she did not leave her computer for three weeks” doing outflow and confirms. Mary Alice also validated Peter Dearaujo and Kathy Karl who she stated helped “day in and day out.”
Marnia Danio, an OT VIII visiting from France was welcomed.
Colleen May was announced as having completed L-11.
Kaye announced the following:
o This Tuesday (March 18) the speaker at the “Keys to OT” event will be Arte Maren, who came to the front and announced that he would be speaking on the subject of “Time” with LRH data from the 16th ACC. The event will be at the Sandcastle Restaurant at 7:15 PM.
o This is still “LRH Birthday Week” through Thursday March 20, so we are still raising funds for the IAS and for Ideal Orgs.
Special Guest Speaker
Anna Nicola, OT Committee Officer Int spoke, beginning with a great validation of our Flag OTC, saying it is “the best OTC on the planet!” She said that we are at a very important moment in our history, with everything in place to clear the planet, the deciding factor being speed. How fast we do it, she continued, depends upon our postulates, intention, create and push. Anna said that is what she needs from the OTC. She asked that we do our OTA Program and our targets from our org. She also stressed that we must complete the Ideal Orgs, adding that for our area, Atlanta is about done, and we need to focus on Miami, Orlando and Puerto Rico, the first target being Miami. She stated that Miami is the gateway to South America.
Anna told us that we are important, and that the Flag OTC sets an example for the entire planet; so, go on course, do your bridge. She said we have a lot of comm lines and friends everywhere, and we should keep our comm lines IN and USE them.
Anna then briefed us about the Ideal Orgs and the progress to date and answered some questions from members. Out of the existing 172 Class V Orgs, 38 are Ideal. For the rest, about 3/4 have already purchased buildings, and the remainder are targeted to be purchased by Maiden Voyage. She said, “We are so close!”
Anna announced that Maiden Voyage will be in June. She said that many things will be announced then, and lots of good news. Anyone who would like to attend Maiden Voyage should speak to Kaye Champagne and let her know as soon as possible, as it is by invitation only.
Anna wrapped up stating the Number One “needed and wanted” things are Ideal Orgs, and Bridge Flow. She said that all of us should be doing the new Golden Age of Tech II services and helping on getting others to do the same.
Mathilde, Public Sec, FSO said that our local field is about 4,000 Scientologists, with about 1,000 having completed their Purification Rundown, and about 1,000 who need to do it. She said that Golden Age of Tech II is all about getting people onto and up the Bridge, and that once a person gets through the Survival Rundown, there is no doubt for that person that they want to move up both sides of the Bridge. Mathilde said that the stats are way up, but that we want everyone in the field to have the wins and gains available. She announced that there is a list of 1,000 names that will be available to us in the FSM area, of people to contact and enlighten to come and do services, inviting us to come and help contact people, adding that we probably know some of them.
Jim Bridgeforth, OTC Chairman’s Org Off added that it is a huge win to team up with FSO staff members and help get someone onto services. He shared a personal win about just mentioning to two others about his wins from having done Super Power and nudging them and this helped them decide to do it too. Jim said that just a little nudge from a fellow OT goes a long way.
Tom Cummins, OTC Deputy Chairman of Production added that when we help the staff, it “adds another dimension” to the cycle. When we share what we got out of it, it gives the guy a peer viewpoint.
Mathilde gave a big acknowledgement to the OTC for the success of the International OT Committee Convention, saying there were 330 in attendance, from 99 orgs, and this was a “Highest Ever” statistic. She thanked the OT Committee for all our work.
Kaye added that she has been attending the OTC Conventions since they started, and agrees that this one was the best. She said that she realized that we (the Flag OTC) are the leaders, the “big org” and what we do with our own Ideal Org Alliance is what others will do with their own continental alliances. She said that our first target is Atlanta, which is nearly done. Next is Miami, and Kaye said she would like to gather together anyone who had any experience with Miami Org to help. She said we need to have some events, some themes, and anyone wanting to help can meet with her after the meeting. There will be and event crew of volunteers to help with ticket sales, MC, decorations, and more.
Kaye read an LRH quote from “Ron’s Journal 31? then adjourned the meeting, and led a round of applause for LRH.

East US OT Committees and LRH Birthday Success 2014
Dear East US OT Ambassadors and OT Committee Members:
I realize it took a few more days to get this Expansion News out to you, but it was well worth the wait, as East US smoked!
First of all, East US had 100% of our OT Committees participate in last weekend International OT Committee Convention! This convention was the best yet, with standing room only in the Fort Harrison ballroom!
Atlanta again dominated East US Ideal Org Fundraising and is #1 in the world! For those of you who attended the convention at Flag, you heard Atlanta OT Ambassador I/C and New Civilization Builder Joel Benk tell us all about how they are making it happen week after week. Atlanta will be the next East US Ideal Org!
East US Service Starts totaled 64 — highest of year! New York OTC accounted for a whopping 30 of those starts! Detroit had 9 and the rest were nicely spread amongst the rest of our OTCs.
As you can imagine, we had a good week of East US IAS support, and CC Nashville led the way!
The number of East US Active OTC Members was UP slightly, with 257 total.
With the LRH Birthday Event showing in our local orgs this weekend, there is plenty for us to do to pre-reg for our remaining Ideal Orgs and also getting starts on Golden Age of Tech Phase II training for making an army of auditors!
