Saturday, Dec 10 10-11:30AM (PST) – TOWN HALL WORKSHOP HOW TO: CONFERENCE AGENDA ITEMS

All members are welcome

The MA World Service business Conference is the opportunity to come together as members in service to the entire Fellowship to address, discuss, and vote on matters that affect MA as a whole, guided by the Fellowship’s group conscience. The purpose of this Town Hall is for members to bring Conference motion ideas and work with the Agenda Committee to craft them into proper agenda items. During the workshop, we will review sample agenda items, workshop member ideas into proper agenda items, determine any contextual information, formatting and composition to be presented in the 2023 Conference Agenda Packet.

ANLP Contributions

A New Leaf Newsletter needs stories, poems, etc. that are centered around recovery. Of particular need are 800-1500 word feature pieces. Typically, the submission deadline is the 10th of the month, but they are in dire need now, so please send something in as soon as possible. The key ask is that it focuses on what happened and what it is like now rather than what it was like. Please send submissions to stories@anewleafpublications.org.

Vote to Change the Language ‘God’ to ‘Higher Power

At the 2021 MA World Service Conference, District 12 presented an Agenda Item to have a fellowship wide vote on whether or not to change the language in the short version of the 12 Steps to replace the word “God” with the words “Higher Power.” Starting November 9th, ballots for this vote will be emailed to individual meetings.
