Subcommittees

We currently have a need for more members on all of our Service Committees. Most of our service committees meet monthly or quarterly via virtual meetings such as Zoom or Skype.  Most committees due not require anymore  time, energy or skills that you are able to reasonably commit to.

  • Prepare sub-committee guidelines.

  • Prepare reports to the region.

  • Bring your ideas to the committee.

  • Assist the committee in making wise decisions that are in the best interest of the Nar-Anon fellowship.

  • Support our primary purpose by carrying the message of recovery to those still suffering.

At all levels of Nar-Anon, all members and officers should be bound by Nar-Anon’s Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts of Service
