Welcome to the list of 2017 ACA Events. The West Great Lakes Intergroup sponsors most of these events. A few of these events are not sponsored by the Intergroup. We think they may be of interest to ACA fellow travelers.

Length of Posting

We will leave these events posted on the West Great Lakes ACA Intergroup web site for the remainder of 2017 and all of 2018. We will do this so that fellow travelers can see the number and kind of events sponsored by the West Great Lakes ACA Intergroup and the meetings that are affiliated with it.

Ready Set GO!! Meetings are closed ACA meetings for introducing the ACA 12 Steps and
the ACA program over a four week period. Ready Set GO!! is for newer ACA members to
become acquainted with the ACA Twelve Steps. The choice when to do the ACA 12 Step
Workbook would be when they feel ready. The experienced member may like to refresh their
recovery.

The material is taken from our Big Red Book and our ACA 12 Step Workbook. It requires
those in attendance to listen to the material with an open mind and an open heart and in good faith with a desire to learn about ACA recovery. Ready Set GO!! can be taken over and over again to get more out of it. Requests will be made for Sharing Partners for the 4 weeks.

It is suggested that Interested members can print out the 101 page pdf of the script and the handouts of the Ready Set GO!! material. Print this out in a single sheet format and bring this
material to all the meetings. If you cannot print this material you are still welcome to join the
meeting for listening, sharing and connecting with other adult children. Just following along
with your computer would be just fine.

It is suggested members commit to attending the 4 consecutive meetings in a row to cover
all 12 steps. Our agenda includes: Week 1—The Overview, Steps 1, 2 and 3. Week 2-Steps 4
and 5, Week 3—Steps 6, 7, 8 and 9, Week 4—Steps 10, 11 and 12.
