There was news from ISO in my inbox this morning:
The International Service Organization of SAA is pleased to announce the availability of SAA pamphlets on the SAA website (saa-recovery.org). The pamphlets may be found by following the “SAA literature” sub-tab from the Home page. Also included are the pamphlets in Spanish and the “Pathway to Recovery” pamphlet in French.
This milestone has been accomplished by the combined efforts of the ISO Literature Committee, the ISO office, and the ISO Board of Trustees and its committees, specifically the Online Presence Committee and the International Development Committee. We believe that ready access to SAA literature online will greatly enhance the capacity of member groups and individual members of the fellowship to carry the SAA message of recovery more effectively and more efficiently.
As before, the printed pamphlets are available for purchase from the ISO – either through the online SAA Store or by telephone or postal mail from the ISO office. Don’t forget to ask about our volume discount.
This development is a good example of how the ISO is working to support members of the fellowship and member groups. As you benefit from having access to the SAA pamphlets online, please remember that the ISO is totally dependent on financial support from members, member groups, and intergroups to offer and maintain this type of service for the fellowship. If you appreciate what the ISO does for you, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today.
The Indiana Intergroup was formed to help its member SAA groups to carry the SAA message to the addict who still suffers, to provide shared and coordinated services and resources to individual members and the member SAA groups, to allow for the efficient use of IISAA funds through IISAA group purchasing, to provide support to the IISAA membership that individual groups, acting alone, could not provide, and to help disseminate information within the SAA organization and to coordinate the public relations of SAA in Indiana.
The IISAA relies upon the support and cooperation, as provided in Tradition Seven, “Every S.A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions”, thereby relying upon the groups in the Indiana Intergroup to support its activities. Each year, the Indiana Intergroup conducts a Spring Workshop, an Annual Picnic, a Fall Retreat and a Holiday that enables its members to interact with one another in a recovery or social atmosphere. The contributions of the groups are an integral part of the ability of the Indiana Intergroup to carryout these activities. If a group wishes to contribute directly to these efforts, simply send your contribution (preferably check or money order though cash may be used for a transaction at the monthly business meeting) to the Indiana Intergroup, P.O. Box 20834, Indianapolis, IN 46220. Quarterly contribution letters are provided to those groups or members who contribute to the IISAA (we are a not-for-profit organization). The Indiana Intergroup sincerely appreciates the financial support that its member groups and individuals provide in order for it to carry out its outreach and social activities. Contribution envelopes are available at the monthly (Second Saturday of each month) business meeting held at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
