New trusted servant attended to receive Helpline Orientation with the purpose of becoming a Helpline Volunteer.

The member qualifies and received Orientation; questions asked and answered.  Conducted Helpline ‘Role Play’ with their phone and all went well.

Next Subcommittee meeting we will be discussing where the greatest need is so that we can conduct specific outreach to willing addicts to fulfill the specific shifts. We also discussed ways to raise further awareness to addicts of the Greater Orlando Area of the great deal of support all NA service subcommittees are in need of; Helpline members discussed the importance of providing information to addicts in a fun and easy-to-understand manner. Conversation took place regarding the importance of repetition when requesting support for Service in NA. It was decided that a Narcotics Anonymous Service subcommittee/s Awareness/Speaker jam be planned to continue our efforts in attracting NA members to volunteer in a NA service subcommittee. A tentative date of April 18th was decided upon to put on the event, as long as it will not conflict with any other Activities that may be on our calendar. It was decided the Helpline chairperson will ask all other Subcommittee members at Area on February 8, 2015, if they are willing to participate in the Service Awareness/Speaker Jam before proceeding with any further plans pertaining to this event. All members of each subcommittee are invited to participate in the planning of this upcoming event.
