National Steering Committee (NSC)
The NSC are the trusted servants of CoDA UK, meeting quarterly to discuss issues raised by the groups and matters affecting CoDA as a whole. One of their meetings is the Annual General Meeting (AGM). At the February 2010 AGM, the following service positions were elected: Secretary, Treasurer, Literature, Internal Communications, Webmaster, General Committee members. These members will serve as the NSC until the next AGM. All members of CoDA UK are welcome at NSC meetings but only the committee are able to vote on any issues. Groups and regions are free to raise issues with the NSC and to send along a Group Service Representative (GSR). Details of when the meetings are held appear on the Events page of this website, with the agenda for the meeting appearing at least a week in advance. CoDA UK pays travel expenses for the NSC members; other members have their expenses paid by their groups. To see what other positions are available on the NSC, go to the Service Positions page. Any member is welcome to volunteer for relevant posts at any time during the year.
These are regional groups formed by the meetings in parts of the UK to discuss issues raised by groups before taking them to the NSC, and to organise social events and workshops within their area.
Currently there is only one active region, in London and the South East (LSERC). This regional group meets every two months and details of their meetings appear on the events page. Over the past few years they have provided 2 representatives to the NSC, have reviewed and proposed sharing guidelines, and have organised two sponsorship workshops and a variety of social events. All meetings in the London and SE region are encouraged to send along a GSR, or email in a brief report from their meeting to be read out.
The Bournemouth group has expressed an interest in forming a South West regional group. More details will appear in due course. Contact the Bournemouth group if you would like to assist with this endeavour.
