Written Shares on the Website

 

CoDA UK is inviting members to email in written “Shares” illustrating their experience, strength and hope, with the intention to provide access to them via the website and possibly in future UK published literature. These shares will serve as a helpful resource to aid identification, build awareness and to support our recovery; they may be of particular interest to newcomers and those coming to terms with their co-dependency.

Any member of CoDA can submit a share by emailing it to codashares at coda-uk.org. The shares committee will review and publish selected shares and is particularly keen to receive shares on the following topics:

*             Shares for newcomers (Experience, Strength and Hope)

*             Working the 12 steps/following the 12 traditions

*            Service

*             Sponsorship

*             Healthy meetings

It is suggested that these shares are 1500 words or less, contain no swearing and are written in the first person “I”. When writing the share it is important to consider the "Guide to Sharing" and work within the guidelines.

CoDA Midlands Region - closure of committee

We are sad to report that the Midlands Region Committee has now ceased to exist

At its AGM on November 9th 2014 it was decided to close the committee as we did not have any members coming forward to fill the vacant roles. The final minutes will shortly be available on the Midlands Region page.

We would like to thank all those who have attended the events we have put on over the last 4 years and supported the Midlands Region in any other ways.

We hope that in the future the Region may re-form and wish healthy strong recovery to all the CoDA Meetings still running inthe Midlands area.
