Traditions Book Project
WSC 2010 adopted a motion to create a project plan for a Twelve Traditions working guide, and a 2011 fellowship-wide literature survey indicated that this is an item that our members are very interested in: Over 80% of respondents said this was an item that was needed or very much needed.
Comments in the literature survey showed a wide variety of expectations about this topic. Some wanted something that could be applied personally, some wanted questions to be asked in a style similar to The NA Step Working Guides, some wanted to better understand the application to groups and service, etc. At the 2012 World Service Conference, we offered a plan for a two-cycle project, so that we can have more of a dialogue with the fellowship this cycle about the focus and approach of a Twelve Traditions working guide before any drafting begins.
The creation of a workgroup, actual drafting of the book, sending the material out for review, and ultimately publishing an approval draft would happen in the 2014-2016 cycle, pending approval at the 2014 conference.
Goals for 2012–2014 Conference Cycle
Our goal for this cycle is to gather fellowship input, source material, and ideas regarding a traditions book both online and through face-to-face workshops. The resources listed below will help in those efforts. By the end of the cycle, we would like to frame viable options for the book so that we can move forward with writing it in the 2014–2016 conference cycle.
