If you haven’t already done so, there is still time to help us gather crucial information by taking the survey, geared toward local members, regarding this return to in-person meetings. The survey will be available through Tuesday, May 18th!

CNCA 06 Post-Conference Assembly Tomorrow, May 15th

A few highlights from the conference include:

  • 5th Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous will begin development. The first 164 pages, Forewords, Doctor’s Opinion, Dr. Bob’s Nightmare & Appendices remain as is, however there will be a new foreword, a special preface, and updates to Appendices III and V. No audit of the first 164 pages will take place.
  • An accessible version of the 4th Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous with plain and simple language will be developed as a separate book.
  • The U.S./Canada General Service Structure will recognize online groups and encourage their participation, listing those groups who ask to be listed within the group’s preferred district and area.
