50th Anniversary Basic Text

Share this page:

At the 2017 Annual Business Meeting (ABM), the Conference authorized the production of a special edition of our Basic Text (BT) for the fellowship’s 50th anniversary in 2026. A committee was formed, the 50th-anniversary Basic Text Subcommittee (50BTS) of the Conference Literature Committee (CLC), which has been working to create this new edition. The links below will take you to documents that, we hope, will answer any questions you may have. Please pass this information on to your fellow members and intergroups.
