Outreach-Increasing our visibility: With meetings dropping over the years due to our lack of visibility we have become the world’s biggest secret. We need to find ideas to reach the medical industry and our funds are very limited in this area. Any and all ideas will be discussed. The medical industry does not know we exist.
Literature workshop 12 step study guide: To get ideas on a 12 step study guide.
Fundraising: Ideas of how we can raise donations. We need to get our Operating expenses to a prudent level. We are slowly spending more than is coming in.
Writing workshops: NRT’s –writing a pamphlet on NRT’s and what they are and what help they do or not do , the pro’s and con’s without making a stand for or against them as it’s a outside issue.
Social Media: A discussion on NicA meetings online on FB. How we can prevent anonymity being broken. Is there harm or good by having them there?
