Conference Participant Web Meeting and WSZF Quarterly

We had the CP web meeting to discuss the WSC last Saturday and then our quarterly Western States Zonal Forum meeting on Sunday, and I just didn’t have time to put together a full report.

I know Carl was excited about the CP meeting, and I’m looking forward to hearing his experience.

I have lots of notes from the WSZF meeting, and will provide a full report next month.

CAR 2022 Motion

Our revised CAR motion was submitted to the World Board and they confirmed receipt. I have had no further communication or push-back.

News from World Board and NAWS

Little White Book 60th Anniversary Edition

The World Board is proposing publication of a Little White Book 60th Anniversary Edition which includes the currently English language version plus the 85 personal stories (assuming in English) from the other translated versions of the LWB. Because this is not new literature, it does not require fellowship approval, but there is a 60 day period for feedback, so if you have strong feelings or question about this project, please email

Spiritual Principle a Day Book (SPAD)

All material for the book is posted for review at and input is due by September 13th.

RD Update – May 2021

Conference Participant Meeting

Send input on any or all of the entries by May 31, 2021. Next batch will be out for review June-September.

Recurring fellowship contributions to NAWS are rising. Over $20K/month in February. NAWS average budget is $5.5 Million for providing services. Goal is to reach 70% donation-driven.

World Service Conference 2022 In-Person is uncertain to unlikely. Accepting suggestions.

World Board has not been able to complete all assigned tasks: Loner IP, Issue Discussion Topics, Project Plan for Women’s IP. WB already has a full plate for the next conference cycle.

No new information on World Convention in Australia for 2022. 2023 is still confirmed for Washington DC in 2023.

Small group discussion focused on finding out where NA is at right now. What is going on with our Groups and Service Bodies / How do we get a pulse of the fellowship and its current service systems?

RD Update – March 2021
