W.A. has also started a new Meeting Development committee in a effort to offer more ongoing support to new and existing groups.


This committee reaches out to members in groups around the world to help them continue to build a strong meeting and local fellowship. Each committee member is assigned meeting contacts in regional areas.  


We are looking for more W.A. members to volunteer to help "sponsor" a group and offer them support and make sure they know about our new Group Support section on the website. This is a wonderful way to provide service and get to know other W.A. members around the world!
