Hello To The CoDA Fellowship!

First, we wanted to  let you know that all of the on time CoDA Service Conference (CSC) motions are out.

You can download them in 1 Zip file here: https://www.codependents.org/2022_Motions.zip . This link will be good with any & all motions updates through conference.

Many are also already available on the website; the rest will be up soon if you prefer to download 1 at a time: https://coda.org/delegate-package-2022/

Please pass this on to others in the fellowship!

CSC FAQ's are available here: https://coda.org/2022-csc-info/

There are 2 other things to mention regarding your delegates. If you (& your meeting) wishes to take the time to read the motions, it is your area delegate(s) job to vote the group conscience of the Voting Entity (VE) they represent. Please let your delegates know how your meetings feel about the motions!

(From the Fellowship Service Manual (FSM), "The primary purpose of the Delegates is to facilitate communication between the VE and the CSC. The Delegate is a conduit between CoDA World and their local communities. An important part of this communication is the gathering and distributing by the Delegates of the CSC Motions and VE Issues to be addressed at CSC to acquire group conscience decisions from their VE membership as to how they should vote."

 

And how to determine if your CoDA Area has a recognized & vetted Voting Entity (also from the FSM)

"A Voting Entity (VE) is a level of Fellowship within CoDA that handles the business aspects for a group typically made up of two or more Intergroups/CSGs and/or Meetings. An Intergroup/CSG may serve as a Voting Entity if decided by group conscience when it is the only Intergroup/CSG within a VE. The Voting Entity organization provides a bridge between Intergroups/CSGs, and CoDA World"

"At the Country, State and Regional or other Voting Entity levels, group and community representatives select trusted servants to serve the members of that Voting Entity. Group representatives also select Delegates to represent them and carry their group conscience to the CoDA Service Conference, which is held annually. Each Voting Entity may send two Delegates to this Conference, which is the annual business meeting of CoDA. At the CoDA Service Conference, Delegates carry the group conscience of those they represent. Delegates also work together to make decisions dealing with CoDA, and select trusted servants who will serve our Fellowship"

If you have questions on whether your state, country, or area currently has a VE, please email imc@coda.org or imcvel@coda.org. Delegates who register without representing a recognized VE may have their delegate status removed.

If you have any additional specific questions, please send a message to Chris J at imcvel@coda.org . Please include the word "CoDA" and/or "CSC 2022",

 

In Service,

Your CSC Prep Committee cscprep@codependents.org
