FROM OUTREACH COMMITTEE, CODA WORLD SERVICE
PERSONAL ENCOUNTERS WITH CODEPENDENTS
Only three people are currently answering emails sent to Outreach@coda.org. This is time consuming but very rewarding service work because it engages us with people discovering their codependent patterns and reaching out for help in overcoming them. Not only do we need more help out of self-care but we also want others to experience as we do these encounters with the very people who are the reasons for our fellowship.
The work requires comfort with email communication since that is all this committee does (our fellow service workers on the cphone committee handle incoming phone calls.) So it can be fitted around other activities 24/7 and we are quick with help when needed, especially for newcomers.
In addition, in accord with the ambitious title of our committee, we have been charged by the Service Conference with other actions as well but have been unable to address them for lack of people. Those charges are:
Contacting professionals to inform them of CoDA Collecting information needed to update our meeting database (perhaps ¼ are not active!) Assembling an operations manual for the committee
Since we receive two dozen or more inquiries per week, those are our priority and we believe we provide excellent service and present a warm, responsive and effective image of the fellowship. But maintaining that with our small numbers as well as those other important tasks we have been charged with means we need your help with them, dear reader. If this message stirs a responding chord in you, we welcome your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a general question about CoDA (as opposed to the specific content of this email), please email email@example.com

The purpose of this list is to share information with any & all CoDA members, especially that which may effect CoDA as a whole.
We will be sending out regular emails with CoDA events, announcements, issues & CoDA business of interest to both specific regions & to the entire CoDA fellowship.
Per the 2nd tradition, For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority, a loving higher power as expressed to our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern. Developing a group conscience requires an informed fellowship, & to be effective trusted servants those you've elected must know the group conscience of the fellowship.
