2018 Electronic CAR, CAT, and Literature Voting Forms

The 2018 CAR Voting process has started and the electronic voting has been released.   In order to accurately tally the votes, the group voting must be registered with NAWS.  Only one vote per registered homegroup is counted, so if you have multiple individuals representing your group, please get together and choose one person to carry your group’s vote.
There are three forms available for online voting:
 
The first form is for the twenty-five 2018 CAR motions, which is for registered groups to vote on. This link is below

(Note: Electronic voting will close at midnight on Friday, March 16th, 2018; the day before the start of the GSR Assembly)
The second form is the NAWS Literature surveys to determine what service, recovery, and idea discussion topic literature should be focused on. Any member of NA may vote for these literature pieces to convey their interest to NAWS.  Please forward this link to any member who may be interested in influencing how our literature evolves.

The third form is the Conference Agenda Track Ballot and their associated motions, proposals, and questions.  This is for groups to vote on topics that will be discussed at the WSC so your AD and RD can best carry your conscience.

All members are welcome to attend and participate in Fellowship Development.  Your voice is important.  Please help us carry the message that any addict can get clean, lose the desire to use and find a new way to live. There are many areas of service available to volunteer your talents that do not require substantial clean time.  All that is needed is a desire to help.  See HELP WANTED for open positions.
