from the NAWS Apr2017 Update...

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

alt

 

 

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?

Regional Delegate Quarterly Report

Washington Northern Idaho Region

Hello Family:

The past quarter has been full and fun but there is not ton of business to report. The most important piece of information to report on is that the new book €“Guiding Principles: The spirit of our Traditionsis now availble to order!  NAWS is now filling order of cases but also individual orders as well.  If you want to order from NAWS please be patient. These re our trusted special workers trying to get new literature out to the entire English speaking NA population.

The RD tem is getting ready to attend Western Service Learning Days in San Diego, Oct21-23, the same weekend s PNWCN. We look forward to bringing back information regarding our issue discussion topics as well as items that are of importance looking forward to the decisions at the next World Service Conference.

The RD tem was able to network with folks round the region at SINAC and Bonner attended re meetings in Lower Columbia, Everett, Grays Harbor, Seattle and the GSF/LSB in Chelan Douglas County. He also conducted n re Inventory for North Olympic Peninsula in Port Angeles.

The World Board met in Los Angeles couple of weeks ago and we are looking forward to receiving any important information that the board would like passed along to the fellowship. At the time of this report there has been nothing reported in NAWS News. If you have not yet subscribed to NAWS News you can do so at NA.org. also, as we have previously discussed you can purchase the new Recovery Companion app at either Google or the app store. This app is great for literature, meetings, checking in with a sponsor or purchasing books directly from NAWS. Utilizing this app will help your recovery and benefit NAWS.

A couple of addicts have a sked the RD team about CAR motions and how they €œget in there.€ We wanted to make sure that we cleared this up so that everyone could have this information if needed. If your homegroup would like to see changes made that affect NA as a whole, it can pass a motion through your area and your RCM can bring that motion here to RSC. The RD team, as well as other experienced members, can help to wordsmith your motion so that it is clear, concise and well written. If the RSC then passes this motion, the RD tem can submit the motion to the World Board. At that point, our assigned World Board Member would help us wordsmith further details to make sure that the motion is ready to be distributed Fellowship wide. There is nothing worse than having to explain a poorly worded motion in the CAR. If you, or your area, have any questions about this process please see either one of us and we will assist you. We are here to help!

In loving service,

RD Tem
