Every SLAA member is encouraged to share the message of recovery to others through service. By being of service, we help ourselves and each other stay sober.
There are many ways for members to participate in service work:
- Be available to talk to or meet with a newcomer or fellow member.
- Commit to a service position at your home meeting.
- Participate in a committee to organize an SLAA event.
- Become a sponsor.
- Offer your time to an Intergroup project such as outreach to professionals, updates to the SLAA web site or keeping the SLAA meeting list current.
- Attend Intergroup meetings as your group’s Intergroup representative.
- Help with a Fellowship-Wide Services (FWS) project such as writing or editing for theJournal, being a long-distance sponsor, reaching out to prisoners or joining the Board of Trustees or one of 20 FWS committees.
FWS Service Work
The newly renamed Conference Steps, Traditions and Concepts Committee (CSTCC) now accepts questions on the Concepts and is in the process of starting a writing group on the Concepts. Hence, the CSTCC is looking for SLAA members to participate in the new writing group as well as to the regular committee’s activities. Participating to the CSTCC is a great way to deepen your knowledge and applicability of the Steps, Traditions and Concepts. Bring your spirit, knowledge and experience to the group! The committee meets on the phone every 4th Sunday of the month at 4 :00 pm Eastern Time. Members interested please visit http://www.slaafws.org/contact/Conference+Steps+and+Traditions+Committee.
