Introduction to NA Meetings Project
An Introduction to NA Meetings Project
The service pamphlet An Introduction to NA Meetings was originally envisioned primarily as a public relations tool—something that NA trusted servants who interact with professionals could distribute to help those professionals prepare addicts for what they would experience when attending their first NA meetings. In practice, however, this pamphlet has been one that seems to fit less neatly into the “Board-approved Service Material” category, in part because potential NA members are the intended audience for the piece.
For this reason, the 2012 World Service Conference adopted the Intro to NA Meetings Project to make this pamphlet more readily accessible to those who find it most useful. Our two main goals with this project are to affirm that this piece is the best it can be and to publish an approval form in the 2014 Conference Agenda Report so that, as Fellowship-approved literature, it can be more widely available to those who will benefit most from it.
This piece has been available to the Fellowship in its current form since 2008 and seems to be quite useful to members and service committees in many places. It is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Norwegian, and Russian. We have not heard suggestions for revision from the Fellowship up to this point, and the World Board reviewed the piece in preparation for releasing it for Fellowship review and input and did not see a need for changes.
- Cover memo about project
- Review draft (Same text as the SP, but with simplified formatting for review)
- Existing version (Service Pamphlet)
- The review and input period for this pamphlet concluded on 30 April 2013. Thanks to all who submitted your thoughts and ideas; look for the approval form in the 2014 Conference Agenda Report near the end of this year.
