Let’s Grow DA – Public Information Training Call – Feb 16, 2017

Several D.A. members — mostly past and present ISRs and GSRs — are leading the organization of a series of 90-minute phone workshops offering an open exchange of experience, strength, and hope on the topic of D.A. Public Information.

There will be nine monthly calls, beginning in January 2017, extensively covering the topic of PI, and creating lots of space for sharing and Q&A.

The goal is to make PI less scary and more fun for all interested D.A. members, allowing all of us easy access to this vital component of our 12th Step.
