2013 Agenda Items
Each year prior to the MAWS Conference, every MA group is asked to review the Agenda Items (Motions), consider them, discuss them and arrive at a group conscience. GSRs then carry their group's conscience to the District Service Committee where further deliberation takes place. The DSC's group conscience is then carried to the MAWS Conference by the district delegates.
Your participation in the process is an important part of carrying the message to the marijuana addict who still suffers.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to marijuana addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
Making a commitment to service work helps us stay clean and sober, and to "keep coming back." It gives us the opportunity to practice loving unselfishness and benefits our own recovery, as well as the recovery of every member in our group.
The MAWS Conference provides many opportunities for service both before and during the Conference. Regardless of how much time you have, there is undoubtedly a way for you to contribute.
