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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
