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.
You’re invited to participate in this year’s
SCA International Service Organization’s (ISO) Annual Conference.
This year’s ISO conference will take place from Friday May 3rd through Sunday May 5th in Chicago IL. Any SCA member may attend, and we especially encourage representatives from intergroups and/or meetings to do so. You don’t have to travel to be a part of the ISO Conference. Using the app StartMeeting will allow you to fully participate from your home, allowing you to see documents that are being discussed, as well as engage in any discussion and voting.
The ISO was created by SCA in 1990 to serve all intergroups and meetings worldwide. ISO approves, publishes and distributes SCA approved literature. It also maintains the website: www.sca-recovery.org, it answers inquiries via phone, letters and email, encourages and helps support the development of new SCA meetings. ISO also reaches out to families and friends, the courts, institutions, the media, and professionals to make them aware of SCA and its purpose.
Among the Fiduciary, Outreach and Inreach topics to be discussed and voted upon this year will include 3 pieces of new SCA Literature. All of these documents have been sent to ISO delegates currently registered in our SCA ISO Yahoo group. If your intergroup and/or solo meeting is unrepresented and has not received these documents, please consult with your members as to electing someone to be a delegate, and notify email@example.com so that your delegate can be included in the email/document list. Each SCA meeting has one vote, and a delegate from an intergroup may represent one or more meetings for voting purposes.If you have any questions about the conference, or if you would like to become more active in the ISO is, please contact Gordon at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

To Be Of Service
The Recovery Book Committee is looking for writers to produce commentary on a few of the SCA “characteristics”.
The type of writings can be summed up as similar to what the AA 12&12 has done with the Steps and Traditions. They are not personal stories, but more from the viewpoint of a non-specific member and general language, including as much experience and “solution” so others may identify with the characteristic.
Please announce or pass this along at your meetings and Intergroup.
If interested respond to either:
(modified from a piece produced by the St. Louis SCA Service Committee)
A word about sponsorship. Sponsorship is two people with the same problem helping each other to work the program. Many SCA members are seeking sponsors to be part of their program of recovery. A sponsor may be (but not limited to) someone who has made some progress in sexual-recovery and shares that experience on a continuous, individual basis with a fellow addict. Would all those who are willing to serve as a S.C.A. sponsor, please let your meeting(s) know.
In order to keep our recovery, it is suggested that we can help others through service. Chairing a meeting, sponsoring a fellow addict, or participating in local, regional or international positions are just a few examples of service. These actions can break our isolation, form community, meet the needs of SCA members and meetings, and ultimately help us stay sober. Consider making service a regular part of your recovery.
