New and Revised Step Working Material: Your Input is Needed!

The 2023 Conference Agenda Report (CAR) survey highlighted the need for new or revised Step working material, and the 2023 World Service Conference has prioritized this as a key focus for the current recovery literature project cycle. While NA already has extensive Step working materials, there is a demand for more diverse and updated resources to meet the varying needs of our members.

Existing Resources and New Developments

Our existing materials, drawn from NA’s books, are being compiled into the NA Survival Kit, set to debut at WCNA 38. However, given the importance of working the Steps in our recovery journey and the diverse approaches members take, the Fellowship has expressed a desire for additional or alternative Step working materials. To better understand what the Fellowship is looking for, we have launched a survey. The insights gathered from this survey will inform the development of a project plan for the 2026 Conference Approval Track material. Your feedback is crucial to this process. Please participate in the survey at www.na.org/surveys. Thank you for your help in shaping the future of our Step working resources. We encourage you to spread the word about this survey to other members. Additionally, if you have any resources you use for working the Steps, we would love to see them. Please send your materials to wb@na.org.

New Contribution Option

In other exciting news, NA World Services (NAWS) has recently added VENMO to their website as an option for one-time contributions, making it easier than ever to support our ongoing efforts.

Upcoming Webinar

Mark your calendars for our upcoming webinar:
  • Date: 3 August 2024
  • Topic: Helping Addicts Find Us: Best Practices for Websites, Meeting Lists, and Flyers
This webinar will provide valuable insights into how we can enhance our outreach efforts and ensure that those in need can find us easily. For more information and to participate in the survey, visit www.na.org. Your involvement is invaluable in helping us create effective and relevant resources for the Fellowship.
We look forward to your participation and contributions!

Fellowship Development

NEZF FD is currently working on an outreach project that is part of the last strategic planning (Oct 2022).  With this project, we are reaching out to each Region within the NEZF to remind them that we are here to help.  As an example of some of the projects that we have supported in the past, we have supported various areas and regions in the development and presentation of workshops at conventions and service symposiums, we have developed trainings, and we have supported areas and regions in strategic planning, and supported them in the entire process.  

NEZF FD supports those seeking assistance through the use of the Service Request Form.
