Election to the European Committee
Any participant, who is representing a local meeting, Intergroup, Region, or national fellowship of ACA, is eligible to vote on decisions regarding the agenda items of the Monthly Teleconference (TC) for the ACA European Committee (EC). Everyone has the right to partition, but the right to vote needs to carry a group conscience.
At this point in time the EC is looking for trusted servants for 3 positions
- EC Service Sponsor Coordinators
- EC Literature Chair
- EC Secretary
Should you be interested in any of these positions, the EC needs your experiences within the program, a short description of what kinda service positions you have had within your fellowship.
We need to have this by the March 4.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Chair of the European Committee
The European Committee works to unify and carry the message to the fellowships of the European countries according to our traditions and concepts. The European Committee (EC) functions as a group of trusted servants elected by its members. The officers carry out the jobs and goals set by the European Committee. The EC is a standing committee of the World Service Organization of Adult Children of Alcoholics (WSO).
