- Traditions Project:
Chapters 2–6 are out to the Fellowship for review and input! Your input is
valuable: www.na.org/traditions. The final chapters (7–12) will be
released for review and input early June 2015.
- Decision Making at the
WSC: Our first focus was the Old Business session. We encourage those who have
proposals amending Conference Agenda Report motions to submit them for
inclusion in the Conference Report so all conference participants can
review them prior to the WSC. We are also looking at tools and resources to
assist the WSC Cofacilitators, and looking into electronic voting for the WSC.
- Planning Our Future: The
workgroup has focused on developing the Role of Zones workshop, which is intended
to help zones think about what is important to them and what they do well. The
workshop material is available at www.na.org/idt. The workgroup has also
had brainstorming sessions about ‘our’ WSC future, but is nowhere near a
recommendation; they are simply discussing ideas. The overarching question is:
“How can we improve our processes so that members and groups feel a connection
to and a part of worldwide NA?” Please share your thoughts with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Delegate Sharing: The
workgroup is charged with framing a session at WSC 2016 for RDs to talk about
issues and experience in order to foster unity, as well as planning the
Saturday afternoon workshops preceding the opening of the WSC. The workgroup is
developing a brief survey to gather input from conference participants to help
plan these sessions.
- WSC Seating: A WSC
Seating workgroup was created with three Regional Delegates who are currently
serving on the Planning Our Future workgroup and one World Board member. This
workgroup will initially meet virtually. We aim to revise the Regional Profile
to include more objective and measureable questions for regions who request
- Service System: We hope
to accomplish the following tasks this cycle. Draft Service System Basics, Local
Service Basics, and Group Support Basics; hold web meetings; establish a
webpage for locally developed tools; and begin to revise some of the draft
