2010 W.A. World Conference 

Our W.A. Conference was professionally recorded for the first time and DVD's will be available to purchase online off our website very soon! The new Outreach Pamphlet was approved at the 2010 World Conference and will be in print by the end of the year. Information in the pamphlet - including the new W.A. Public Awareness Policies will be on the website very soon. The W.A. Board also approved a new suggested meeting format for various types of meetings that will be available in the new starter kits.  AND.... Austin, Texas is the official site for the W.A. 2011 Word Conference!

Even though we have always provided support to the new start up groups, we are now discussing ways to provide more extensive support with new literature, along with phone and email support to new groups and existing ones to help them with member retention and growth. We will also be adding informative support content to the website as well.

We feel the stronger the local groups the easier time they will have in retaining members and growing their group as well as spreading the message to their local community.  If you have ANY ideas we would love to hear them!
