Membership Survey: Just a reminder to fill out the membership survey online at http://www.na.org/?ID=2015-survey if you haven’t already done so. The data from the survey helps us to demonstrate that we are a viable and respected recovery community resource and to offer hope to others that they, too, can recover. The deadline for the survey is 4 October 2015.
Traditions Project: The last chapters of the Traditions Book project have been released for review and input. The deadline for input on Traditions 7–10 is 31 August. The deadline for input on Traditions 11 & 12 is 30 September. You can access them here: www.na.org/traditions. You don’t have to wait until you have input on all of the material to send us your thoughts. In fact, the sooner we receive your input, the more time we have to incorporate your ideas into the revisions.
World Service Position Nominations: In order to be considered for nomination to the World Board or HRP or as a WSC Cofacilitator at WSC 2016, please submit a World Pool Information Form or update your form if you have submitted in the past by 31 August 2015.
The deadline for regions, the World Board, and zones to submit candidates to the HRP for consideration for nomination to the World Board, HRP, or as WSC Cofacilitator at WSC 2016 (RBZ candidates) is 31 October 2015.

Service System Web Meetings: We hope to schedule two web meetings related to the service system project ideas in August: an introductory web meeting that will consist of a presentation followed by Q&A, and a web meeting for those who are implementing ideas or thinking of implementing ideas related to the project. This second web meeting will function primarily as a chance for members of those communities to talk to each other about what is working and what they would like input on. If the meeting for implementers seems helpful, we could schedule them regularly.
We also would like to schedule a web meeting for folks serving in rural communities soon. If you are interested in participating in any of these web meetings, please email
and let us know which interest you.
Conference Agenda Report: The English-language Conference Agenda Report will be published by 25 November 2015, and the translated versions of the CAR will be published by 24 December 2015.
