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
