NAWS Web Meetings

NAWS Web Meetings

Web meetings are a great way to gather information and share experiences on service related topics. Some of the topics are ongoing discussions, and others are new as we attempt to put together new tools for the Fellowship. Below are more details.


Public Relations web meetings are a gathering of area & regional PR trusted servants who share their experiences and challenges with PR service; topics are identified by PR trusted servants. Write to pr@na.org for more information.

Inmate Step Writing web meetings offer support for those service committees who offer this service. Write to handi@na.org for more information.

H&I web meetings welcome individuals and trusted servants interested in discussing issues around H&I service. Write to handi@na.org for more information.

Conventions and Events: In support of developing tools, we are gathering information and collecting best practices for conducting conventions and events. Experienced members needed, all are welcome. See www.na.org/conventions for more information.

Local Service web meetings focus on gathering best practices to begin putting together a local service toolbox. The first focus will be consensus-based decision making. See www.na.org/toolbox for more information.

Rural Service web meetings are intended for those serving in places where meetings are far apart or population is sparse. Come join us and share your experiences with others who can relate. Write to nick@na.org for more information. Click here to watch previous meetings and access more materials related to rural service.

NAWS Update February 2017

Hello everyone,

We’re writing to let you know about some changes in our accounting system.

Contribution Portal

We have launched a new contribution portal. Over the past few years, some of you have asked for a history of personal and group/service committee contributions. This new portal will allow contributors to see their past contributions dating back to June 2015, and keep track of any new ones going forward. As always, all personal data will be held securely by the payment gateway, to ensure the privacy of financial information. For questions regarding the portal or about contributions in general, please email contributionquestions@na.org. You can access the new portal here http://www.na.org/contribute.

Literature Customer Survey

As part of an evaluation of our literature distribution system, we are collecting feedback from members, groups, areas, regions, and offices that have ordered literature from NA World Services. Please take a moment to answer some simple questions which will assist us in this effort. We have created an online survey and you can access it at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/litdist. We are asking for your responses by 31 March 2017.

Product Update

We also wanted to let you know that the special edition of Guiding Principles is now available for $30. The edition is limited to 7,000 hand-numbered copies, and includes full-color chapter starts, a textured, shimmering cover, and a coordinating bookmark.

The regular edition Guiding Principles continues to be available in both hardcover and softcover for $11.

The February 2017 Product Newsflash (click here to view it) also shows the 2017 calendars which we have discounted.

Please feel free to pass on any of this information.

Thank you
