It is not too early to plan for the May – June Session of Ready Set GO!! Whether you are a new ACA looking for an overview/introduction to the program or a seasoned veteran in need of a refresher course Ready Set GO!! is the place for you.
The May-June session will be held on Tuesdays from May 4 – June 8 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am (CST)
Ready Set GO! is a 6 week introductory program of the ACA program, the ACA 12 Steps and an introductory Inner Child Workshop “Awakening My Little One”. It is a meeting/workshop with Q&A and sharing time giving participants opportunity to be a leader or ask questions or more clarity.
All RSG introductory meetings are registered and closed meetings. RSG has been developed especially to support newcomers while also being beneficial to the experienced member.
We direct our participants to donate the 7th tradition and have recently started including our meeting ID in our flyer. We hope that would cover our 7th Tradition.
If you are interested please send an email to Toni at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you a packet of information to get you ready for the experience and the program that you will follow during the program.
Weekly Ready Set GO!! sessions have been scheduled out through the beginning of April. What a wonderful way for newbies and veterans to review all the steps and tools that ACA has to offer. Each week a number of steps are reviewed and participants have an opportunity to reflect on together. During the last 2 weeks Inner Child tools are introduced and practiced. If you can fit this into your schedule it will be well worth your time and will give you tools for recovery going forward. Below you will find flyers, dates and times, and information to participate in the upcoming sessions.
Saturdays, March 6, 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 2021, 4:00pm CT, 5pm ET, 2:00pm PT, 3:00pm MT

You are invited to discuss the characteristics of a Loving Parent. Jan R is celebrating her 4th anniversary and discovered a film that will give us an opportunity to get to know our Loving Parent.

The event will be held virtually on March 13 from 6-8:30 PM Central using Zoom.

Jan has asked for attendees to RSVP to her email address and you’ll find that on the flyer as well.
The 2021 ACA Annual Business Conference will be held on Saturday, April 24th and Sunday, April 25th. In preparation each year the ACA community is given the opportunity to submit proposals to be considered during the Business Conference.
Those proposals have now been returned for our consideration. Each group has an opportunity to determine their own consensus on whether or not each proposal should be on the Conference agenda for consideration. Each meeting is autonomous, so each meeting will have the opportunity to vote online on these proposals from February 15 through March 31.
The ACA WSO offered 3 Town Hall meetings where the proposal submitters were given a chance to give more information about their proposals. Six proposals were presented at each Town Hall.
The Town Halls were held on Jan 24th, Feb 1st and Feb 6th and were recorded for later viewing.
During February and March please take time to consider these proposals in your meeting so you can participate in the direction of the WSO.
You can find links to the recordings of the town hall sessions, the proposals in five different languages and the ballot to record your group’s vote on the ACA WSO website at: https://acawso.org/category/ballot-prep/.
Your group has an opportunity to vote until March 31.
