Have you tried a discussion group, a Big Book study group, or something along those lines?
I know that the meetings I go to start with a reading of the Preamble, Steps, Traditions and a passage from "As Bill See's It" which is a daily meditation book but then the chairperson shares their experience, strength, and hope then picks a topic and calls on people to share. The Big Book study group that I sometimes attend starts the same way but the difference is each week a different passage of the Big Book is discussed and studied.
I know when I am called on to chair I try to pick a topic that is relevant to that point in my life unless there is someone new to recovery in the room then I always go back to the 1rst Step and discuss my experience with that as a topic. For example: unless someone new is in the room then I might, if I have been struggling with resentments, share about the resentment I have been dealing with and how I am applying the program, the Steps, to help resolve that problem and where I am with the results of that application. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to when you are talking about topics or what.
Maybe I am not understanding what you are looking for.
NOTE: All BB quotes are from the 1st Edition of the Big Book
Depression is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being too strong for too long.

If there are no other speaker/discussion meetings around your area, maybe, at your group's next business meeting, you could make a motion to add topics of discussion into the meeting agenda.
With the GIFT of recovery...The sky's the limit...
