NAWS Update WCNA 37

Hello everyone,

We have just posted a survey about WCNA 37, and we encourage you all to take some time to fill it out. The survey is posted here www.na.org/survey. It will be online through the end of November.

This convention was the biggest World Convention ever, with 21,400 people registered and 1,100 newcomer badges given out. We tried a number of new things including a new electronic registration system, a new system to sign up to volunteer, and a mobile app for the Convention.

There were more than 80 workshops at the convention as well as seven main meetings, six World Board forums, eight Keep Giving Back workshops, and four public relations forums. For the second time, we offered a free link to the audio of the main meetings and had thousands of those connections, plus more than 80 Zoom connections to the Unity Day meeting on Sunday.

We hope you’ll let us know what you think went well and what we need to work on for next time.

Many of you have asked whether we will have merchandise from the Convention available, and we are still taking inventory and making a determination. We will email you if we do make some merchandise available for sale.

Audio recordings of the convention are for sale. You can find the link at www.na.org/wcna. We hire a company to provide this service, so please purchase the recordings you want rather than obtaining them in some other way. If members don’t pay for the recordings, it will be increasingly difficult for us to find a willing vendor.

If you’re looking for more ways to relive the WCNA experience, keep your eyes open for the next issue of The NA Way Magazine, which will be a special edition devoted to the convention.

Thank you to all who helped make this convention a success. It didn’t happen by magic, but through the hard work of hundreds of volunteers. Thank you!

Yours in service,
World Board

 

IDTs – Membership Survey – Book Project

From the Narcotics Anonymous World Board:

Hello everyone,

We are writing with lots of news and announcements.

Issue Discussion Topics

Issue Discussion Topics (IDTs) are subjects that encourage us to think more deeply about relevant topics and help build unity within our groups and service bodies. The IDTs for this cycle are Carrying the NA Message and Making NA Attractive, Attracting Members to Service, and Drug Replacement Therapy (DRT) and Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) and NA. Workshop material including Session outlines, PowerPoints, and handouts have been posted at www.na.org/idt. That page also has a section with general discussion/workshop tools. Please send the results of your workshops to worldboard@na.org. You can type up the responses and send them in or just send in pictures of the note sheets.

Membership Survey

Every three years, we conduct a membership survey to gather information about our Fellowship, in order to strengthen our public relations efforts and learn more about how and where we carry our message of recovery. The survey will be posted at www.na.org/survey until the end of the year. Please consider filling out the survey—which is anonymous—and forwarding the link to other members.

Spiritual Principle a Day Book Project

We need your help letting everyone know about our current book project. The book will explore a spiritual principle each day, in a similar style to the Just for Today daily meditation book. We just posted online forms as well as workshop materials for members to submit their writing. Check it out at www.na.org/spad and spread the word. Thank you for your service!

Yours in service,

World Board

Survey For the Daily Meditation Book Project

We [NAWS] included a literature survey in the 2016 Conference Agenda Report so that members could express their ideas for what are the next literature priorities in NA. In the book-length category, there were two different options for a daily meditation book—a daily meditation book featuring a spiritual principle a day and a daily meditation book based on Living Clean. Both options were highly rated on the survey and we are collecting input from the Fellowship to help develop the focus of the book so that we can frame a project plan for consideration at the 2018 World Service Conference.

Please click the link to open the online survey or download a file to print. Please discuss at your homegroup or service committees.

Please complete your input by 1 June 2017

Mental Health/Mental Illness IP Project

The deadline for input is extended until June 1st so there is still time to submit a survey!

The 2016  Conference Agenda Report included a survey to determine priorities for recovery literature. The topic that most regions prioritized for the next information pamphlet or booklet was “Mental Health.” That same Conference passed a motion, “ That the NA World Board develop a project plan which includes a budget and timeline to create an informational pamphlet specifically about mental illness and recovery for consideration at the 2018 World Service Conference.”

The Conference agreed to prioritize the topic mental health/mental illness and collect input from the Fellowship over the course of this cycle about the focus and content of the piece. Your input will help shape a project plan which will be included in the 2018 Conference Approval Track material and voted on at WSC 2018.
