People are really stepping up to create regional gatherings in place of an Annual Convention! Yet another group is looking for help planning a telephone conference in Region 5 conference. Right now they are thinking of a conference lasting 1 – 3 days for 4 to 6 hours. What a great way to reach more people with the EA program!

A California group translated the entire Today book into Spanish! What an enormous amount of work for which we are so grateful! We now need to format each page to fit the appropriate page size. You do NOT need to understand the Spanish language to do this task! You simply need to copy/paste and then adjust the type size/style and create a PDF of each page. It's a huge task but it could be divided among multiple people. Would your group like to take it on as a service to EA? Please email
Your Trustee's Reflections
During 2017, your EA Trustees will reflect on one of the Helpful Concepts here.
Concept 6: We never discuss religion, politics, national or international issues, or other belief systems or policies. EA has no opinion on outside issues.
Thank you EA for this helpful concept! It seems to me that our weekly meetings are the ONLY place I can go without all the chitter chatter of politics; of fears of nuclear war; of endless headlines of violence in our streets and homes. What a gift it is that EA does not have an opinion on outside issues which allows me the time needed to work my program! I love it! - Gus S., President
Newcomers are important to EA and to my recovery because they remind me where I have been and provide an opportunity to practice Step 12. Part of welcoming newcomers is providing an inclusive environment. Members discuss a particular religion or political viewpoint a newcomer may feel different or excluded, even if that is not the intent. My view points on many things have changed over time, so why risk losing the message of recovery for years because of an opinion I hold today? Viewpoints are fine but in EA the message of recovery takes priority - Val C., Secretary
I'm grateful for this concept. Opinions are so distracting! I wonder if our personal opinions even matter that much. What do you think—just kidding! In EA, we just focus on inside issues vs. the outside world; conversations usually covered in the news. We emphasize the only thing that truly matters—how our H.P. can bring healing to us—how we can stay focused vs. being distracted by religion, politics, and policies- Scott J.,VP & Treasurer
