WHAT IS THE WESTSIDE AREA SERVICE COMMITTEE (WASC)?
The WASC is an assembly of elected “Group Service Representatives” (GSRs). These GSRs represent each group that hosts a Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meeting (or meetings) that are part of the WASC. The WASC also consists of WASC subcommittee representatives and elected administrative officers. The WASC meets monthly, uses a business meeting format to discuss NA Area, Region, and World-related issues, and asks that GSRs participate in Area Service.
The WASC meeting is approx. 1 hour held on the FIRST SUNDAY of the month at 1 PM (PST).
If the first Sunday is a holiday weekend, the WASC meeting moves to the second Sunday of the month.
WHO MAY ATTEND THE WASC MONTHLY MEETINGS?
Area Service is open to all our members. It consists of Area Activities, Phone Lines, Public Relations (PR), Hospital and Institution (H&I), local Literature distribution (books, pamphlets, key tags, etc.), Website, Directory Listings, and more.
Any NA member may attend the WASC as a guest; however, any area service-related issues or service-related concerns should be addressed to your group’s GSR as they carry the group consciousness, can raise issues, make motions, and vote.
