CSPC

The Conference Sponsorship Committee (CSPC) welcomes your questions, ideas and participation. The CSPC is dedicated to promoting recovery by drawing on the tool of sponsorship. Our goal is to make sponsorship accessible and rewarding to sponsors and sponsees in the fellowship of S.L.A.A.

“The mission of the Conference Sponsorship Committee (CSPC) is to conduct the business of the CSPC in line with the principles of the S.L.A.A. Steps and Traditions, to develop new S.L.A.A. literature to submit to the Conference Literature Committee for possible publication on topics pertaining to sponsorship in its various forms, to utilize the S.L.A.A. resources to increase knowledge of sponsorship and to promote sponsorship, to strengthen and support S.L.A.A. members seeking sponsors and to support those already sponsoring.”

CSPC Activities

Various service opportunities are available through the CSPC, such as answering emails from S.L.A.A. members, assisting with the Long Distance Sponsorship and Recovery Support Program (LDSRSP), participating in monthly CSPC telemeetings, and reviewing and offering input to new draft literature on sponsorship.

LDSRSP Flyers

You can promote Long Distance Sponsorship throughout the fellowship by distributing flyers by email, or at meetings, Intergroups and S.L.A.A. events. The flyer can be downloaded as a PDF in color (http://slaafws.org/files/cspc/CSPC_LDSRSP.pdf) or greyscale (http://slaafws.org/files/cspc/CSPC_LDSRSP_grey.pdf).
