OTC July 27-29, 2018 Retreat Cancelled

Despite making every effort to pull together a full retreat committee, we just didn’t get the response we'd hoped for. So with heavy hearts we are cancelling this year's OTC retreat.
Going forward we’ll be organizing a group inventory. There, we’ll focus on the question: Are we doing everything we can to encourage service and provide the best recovery tools for the fellowship? In case you’re unfamiliar with them, group inventories are a healthy way to examine how a meeting (or in this case the fellowship as a whole) is working and what we can do to improve it.

We will be scheduling a retreat for 2019 and, towards that end, we need to find a new chair very soon.

If you feel scared or unfamiliar with the process but really want to offer service for next year’s retreat, please email the Service committee at We also have a retreat manual that describes the process of retreat planning - you may view that here. Those of us who have done service for past retreats will be more than happy to talk with you and answer all your questions about how to do it. We want to help anyone interested in participating feel comfortable with the service. So please do get in touch!

We are a getting closer to a completed Open To Change Step Workbook.
This kind of workbook is an invaluable tool for recovery and we can’t wait to get it
into everyone’s hands. Each meeting will have a speaker, time for step writing,
and open sharing. Some step shares are needed more than others which is why we
are not doing all the steps in order.

At the end of the meeting you’ll be asked to submit your written share (no names
will be included) via which may be added to the final
version of the workbook.

Things to consider in your written share submission:
  • Is my share focused on recovery in this particular program (vs. AA, DA, Alanon, etc)?
