19 March 2022 Webinar: How do we attract members to service?

Attracting members to service is a topic that never seems to go out of season, but we have received more inquiries than usual lately. As many service bodies begin meeting in person after not doing so for months because of the pandemic, it seems that participation has dropped off in many places.

On 19 March, 11 am – 1 pm, Pacific Daylight Time, we’ll hear from members around the world about what’s working for their groups and service bodies. There will be time for questions from attendees. You can find a flyer for the webinar here: We will have Spanish and Portuguese interpretation, and the webinar will be streamed on YouTube in English. (The streaming link will be posted at shortly after the webinar starts.)

Webinar ID: 826 9114 3020

Passcode: 1953

If you have any innovations or new approaches to getting members involved in service, we’d love to hear about them. Feel free to respond to this email with some details.

Revising The Loner IP

We are beginning work on a project passed at the last World Service Conference to revise IP #21: The Loner, Staying Clean in Isolation. The world has changed a lot since The Loner was written in 1986, and the IP is very outdated. All NA literature projects begin by asking the Fellowship what to include or focus on in the piece of literature. To that end, we have posted a survey ( We also have posted workshop materials on that same page so that you can discuss ideas with your group or service body.

What do you think should be changed in the IP? (As a reminder, you can find the current version posted here We encourage all members to fill out the survey, which will be posted until the end of August 2022. If you have pre-pandemic experience recovering as a loner, we are particularly interested in hearing from you.

Just for Today ebook

Did you know all of NA’s books are now available in electronic versions? The electronic version of Just for Today has just been published. You can find them all from the links posted on It’s great to be able to carry our NA library with us wherever we go and search the books for a specific word or principle.
