An Outreach Committee workgroup is a group of CoDA members who meet to create or revise materials or procedures for a specific area of outreach. The facilitator must be an Outreach Committee member, but other members of the group do not need to be. Workgroup members can be actively engaged in an ongoing basis, or play consultant-type roles, sharing their experience on specific aspects of a topic. Groups may be created for shorter or longer periods of time.
After a member or members have identified a topic area they feel should be addressed, a project proposal is brought to the the committee as a whole for consideration and approval. This vetting process ensures that the project is appropriate for the Outreach Committee, that it meshes with the Twelve Traditions, and that information has been gathered prior to starting.
