2021: CoDA's Year Of Service
At The 2020 Service Conference, A Motion was passed to declare 2021 the "Year Of Service".
Did you know that most CoDA members are welcome in joining a committee at the world level? * It's a great way to give back and for you to make a difference!
Some have personally found doing service to be a great way to learn to set boundaries and say no when we need or want to. Especially early on, some need to learn what limits are, and service in CoDA is a great way to practice in a safe environment. It’s also an excellent way to learn about the 12 Traditions, make new friends in recovery, practice the 3rd tradition by actively coming to consensus & group conscience in a healthy and respectful manner, learn how to encourage & participate in building a healthy consensus, and help to insure CoDA’s continued health and presence - and to just plain enjoy some fun & fellowship!
