Future of the WSC Project

As NA grows, the World Service Conference has been growing along with it. That may sound like good news, but it’s more complicated than that. The larger the Conference becomes, the more expensive and, after a point, the less effective it gets. At the last two WSCs, participants had a series of sessions in breakout rooms about the future of the WSC and how to best meet the needs of NA in an ever-growing Fellowship. In each of these rooms, much of the discussion highlighted the possibility that the way forward rests, in part, with our use of zones. 

We plan to continue discussing the future of the WSC and the role of zones. There are two related aspects of this conversation: 1. the effectiveness and sustainability of the Conference, 2. the size and shape of the WSC.

Our hope for these conversations is that they help the Conference come to agreement about a vision for itself that serves our collective needs as a Fellowship, uses its fair share of Fellowship resources, and allows for effective discussions and decision making. The resources on this page are offered as ideas and tools to further this conversation.
