CoDA Is Seeking Meetings Willing To Sponsor Holiday CoDA-thon Meetings

From: "CoDA Group Representative List" <>
Date: December 15th 2021

Dear Group Service Reps,

First, thank you for opening this email!

For those who are not aware, a "CoDAthon" is a non-stop series of meetings during the holidays, especially geared towards the Co-dependent who still suffers. It's especially helpful for those without family or those who would benefit from additional support during the holiday season. The idea originated decades ago in at least one other 12 step group. The CoDA alt meetings started doing similar fairly early this century. The last several years, these meetings have been made available to the entire fellowship. Generally, they are offered Christmas Eve & Day; and New Year's Eve & Day.

Up until this year, 3 of the alt meetings were sponsoring these meetings. It appears that 2 are no longer doing so, & the third has not sent a definite confirmation yet.

So we are writing to ask if your meeting would be willing to sponsor a CoDAthon meeting, even for one of the 4 days. And of course, the more meetings, the better!

Basically, it requires that the sponsoring meeting has a Zoom account or phone account & that we can share the log in information with the fellowship. Other than that, a meeting willing to sponsor this valuable service would hopefully provide a facilitator or meeting chair for each time slot.

If your meeting is interested, or if you have any questions, please either respond to this email or email

We hope to have a list of available online & phone meetings available in a followup email very soon.


In Service and on behalf of CoDA board member Barbara D,
