14  GWSNA could use a more holistic review, but the conference has important decisions to make about its future that will significantly affect it. In the cycle ahead, we would like to draft a glossary. Proposed Revisions to A Guide to World Services in NA

15  Proposed GWSNA Revisions  Policies affected by Motions 2 and 3  Decisions related to proposals experiment  Text left out of GWSNA  Edits regarding outdated policies  HRP requested change

16  We need to come to a collective understanding about the future of the WSC and develop seating criteria based on that understanding. WSC Seating

17  Recent WSC Seating Decisions  2008: Approved moratorium on consideration of regions resulting from a regional split for two conference cycles [passed by voice vote]  2010: Failed amendment to moratorium that called for no regions being considered for seating at WSC 2012 [standing vote: 80/40/1/0 (yes/no/abstain/present)]

18  Recent WSC Seating Decisions  2012: Two questions considered Do you support the WB recommendation to not consider any regions of seating at WSC 2014? [Straw Poll Results: 41 in favor, 55 opposed] Continue the spirit of the existing moratorium for one cycle. (Do not consider regions resulting from a split.) [Straw poll results: 73 in favor, 20 opposed]

19  WSC Seating: Moving Forward  Ongoing WB & conference discussions  Two motions offered in the CAR that could affect the conference  WSC 2014 sessions regarding WSC purpose, WSC seating, and the role of zones

22  WSC Seating Requests and Inquiries  Recommendation is to not seat any new regions at this time, but to offer a commitment of support from NAWS until WSC seating is resolved  This recommendation is a call to action

23  This is not part of the CAT, but affects CAR material. We will recommend: An Introduction to NA Meetings IP Edits

24  An Introduction to NA Meetings IP corrections  Correct a typographical error We encourage you to read NA literature including the Basic text and the booklet In Times of Illness, which will explain… [CAR, p. 48, first paragraph after bullet points]

25  An Introduction to NA Meetings IP corrections  Remove potentially confusing reference to our primary purpose People have all sorts of reasons for attending NA meetings, but the purpose of each meeting — our “primary purpose” — is to give NA members a place to share recovery with other addicts. [CAR, p. 47, second paragraph]
