HUGE NEWS - Cyber and Virtual Recovery to be Recognized at
World Convention in Orlando!!!
Copy of Email Sent to All Groups
To All Phone Line Groups,
Something wonderful and very important has happened! The World Service Office is holding a workshop at the World Convention in Orlando on Online Meetings and Virtual Recovery. This is pivotal because it is the first time the World Service Office is publicly acknowledging our existence and the message that we carry. We will be able to inform so many more people of our existence because of this. Please inform your groups of this workshop so if they are attending the World Convention they can attend this workshop and show how strong we are. The workshop will be on Friday, 3:30-4:45pm. Hopefully, all the people from the phone lines meetings will attend to show our unity and for a “meet and greet.” It is so fun to have faces to attach to the voices we know so well. Meeting lists will be available for our members to pass out during the rest of the World Convention.
Our next Cyber Area Formation Discussion will be on August 11 on the NA by Phone Service number, 712-775-7035, 554778#, from 1:30-3:00pm E, 12:30-2pm C, 11:30am-1:00pm M, and 10:30am-12N P. At our last meeting the members and Groups in attendance agreed that a service structure could benefit all the groups. Groups are encouraged to elect GSR’s to send to this meeting and, of course, all interested members are invited to attend. If you would like to hear the last meeting the recording is available for download on the Announcements page of NAbyPhone.com.
This is an exciting time to be in NA. The acceptance of Cyber and Virtual Groups and meetings, whether Skype, Zoom, On-Line or Teleconference, is going to swell our membership as much as the Basic Text did in the 1980’s. Other technology platforms have already created Areas and the time is right for us to do the same. A fully-functional Area will be able to provide the means to reach so many people that need our help and at the same time provide many more people to help us run our meetings and do service.
Please discuss this at your Group Conscience and Business Meetings and elect a GSR to send to our meeting on August 11.

NA service is varied and creative. We do all kinds of work to carry the message and support our groups. We bring meetings or panels into hospitals and institutions, and make presentations to inform providers and the public about Narcotics Anonymous; we hold events for our members, create meeting schedules and websites, gather resources, and balance the books. We participate in fellowship development. We get involved with literature creation or translation, and provide learning days and workshops so that members can participate in the life of Narcotics Anonymous. All of this and more goes to build our Fellowship. Keeping the connection in view between the service we do and the addict who walks in the door brings passion to our service, and keeps us focused on our purpose.
