**UPDATE** ~ World Convention 37 ~

WCNA37 is gonna be big.  Start planning/saving now...!

WCNA 37 – “The Magic Is Still Real”


On 30 August through 2 September 2018, the World Convention of Narcotics Anonymous is coming back to Orlando, Florida after almost 30 years. The theme for WCNA 37, “The Magic is Still Real” is an homage to the original theme from 1989, “The Magic is Real,” and merchandise and other convention materials will feature some of the original artwork. Those of us who were at WCNA 19 in Orlando are really excited to go back almost 30 years later and celebrate recovery together again. The lie truly is dead.

The Orange County Convention Center-West building located at 9800 International Drive, Orlando Florida, is the primary location for meetings and events. NA World Services plans to begin registration sales and hotel reservations sometime in August of 2017 so members will have more time to make plans. NAWS expects that there will be pre-convention and post-convention activities available as well.

The most visited city in the US, Orlando is a great fit for an event like ours. Some general information about the city of Orlando and the Orange County Convention Center can be found at the links below. Links to more information about local attractions will be made available when we go on sale. NAWS will update this page on their website:  www.NA.org/WCNA as more information becomes available.

Update on Upcoming NAWS Webinars **Rural Areas PLZ Take Note**

At the beginning of May NA World Services will be planning a web meeting to begin discussing our next draft tool—something to benefit those who are serving in rural or isolated communities. World Services has been holding web meetings roughly each quarter to help support those trusted servants, and we would like to develop a tool of some kind to capture some of the experience and best practices that have been shared. This is the item that scored second highest on the Local Service Toolbox survey we had posted (with CBDM Basics scoring highest). We will have more information about this meeting shortly before the date. In the meantime, we can tell you that we will probably take a similar approach to the CBDM Basics first web meeting where we broke into small groups so that everyone could discuss what they would most like to see in a tool developed for rural and isolated service. For a collection of resources and recorded web meetings on the subject see www.na.org/ruralservice.

The next two meetings after that will be in June to collect input on the draft of CBDM Basics that is posted at www.na.org/toolbox. We also have an form posted at www.na.org/toolbox to get your input on the draft, and we encourage everyone to share their thoughts there as well. At the two June meetings we’ll be talking about what you would like to see changed (cut, added, further explained, etc.) in the draft.

Wednesday 3 May, 1-2:30 pm PST: Rural and Isolated Service—Brainstorming meeting to talk about what to include in a tool

Saturday 17 June, 1-2:30 pm PST: CBDM Basics input

Tuesday 20 June, 1-2:30 pm PST: CBDM Basics input

Please let us know if you have any questions. We will email you again before the May meeting with log-in instructions and any further information we have.

Thank you all for your service,

The Toolbox Team

NAWS has posted the Annual Report. You can find the report online here www.na.org/ar2016 or order a hard copy from NAWS customer service or online shopping cart: http://www.na.org/?ID=OrderLiteratureOnline-content

Along with the Annual Report, for the first time NAWS has created a printable infographic Annual Report in Brief that captures some of the key data in the report. The AR in Brief is posted in two different formats, both of which are intended for print rather than reading online.

Local Service Toolbox Project

We are excited to be working on a local service toolbox;€” a collection of tools that reflect our Fellowship's best practices and experiences delivering services locally. The 2016 Conference Agenda Report asked members to identify priorities for new or revised service materials, and local/area tools/toolbox was the first priority identified.

We already have some materials, such as PR, Planning, and H&I Basics, but there are so many more we lack or that we have not revised or adapted in years. The €œBasics€ seem to be a good approach for us because they are perhaps less overwhelming than a large handbook, and they are easier to translate and revise. We believe a €œtoolbox€ with small-scale pieces will have the same advantages. Our first such piece is CBDM Basics, and you will find a draft below.

Whether you are a service veteran or an area service newcomer, we could use your help.

What can you do?
