Seeking new Chair for the Recovery Book Committee

The Recovery Book Sub-Committee is again without a Chair. If you can really donate some time and care about the future of SCA, please consider helping to Chair this group to finish it’s chartered work on producing the building blocks of our recovery.

Part of the responsibilities of the Chair would be to organize and run Conference Calls and work closely with the Literature Development Chair and Committee.  As Inreach Chair I will help oversee the progress of our goals and hopefully help keep us directed and focused on the principals of the program.
Please let me know if you are interested in the Chair position of the Recovery Book Committee?
