Treasurer Update

The NSC treasurer has been having problems accessing emails sent to the treasurer at coda-uk.org email address.   Any emails sent to the treasurer since late October / early November will not have been recieved.   An alternate address has been setup at treasurernsc_coda at yahoo.co.uk . Could all members please direct all communication for the treasurer to the alternate address until further notice.   Any emails sent in the past 2 months to the coda-uk.org address will need to be sent again to new alternate address if action is required by the treasurer.

Publishing and Distribution of CoDA Literature in the UK

The Publishing & Distribution Contract between Coda Inc & our publisher in the UK has now been signed and we are waiting for Coda Inc to send us the PDFs of the literature, so that we can start printing. Hopefully this will happen in the very near future. As soon as  we have a date for publication we will post it here and on the Literature page. We will then send out information on how to order to all the meetings.

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.
