Member Service Opportunities
In Nar-Anon, we have found that doing service work has been helpful in our recovery. There are many ways a member may choose to help promote the growth of Nar-Anon. One way is within your own group (GSR, Secretary, Treasurer or perhaps your group as a welcome committee or outreach opportunities or simply to help set up the room or put things away after the meeting). Another way is to participate in the Region or Area committees.
The Nar-Anon Family Groups service structure is in
place to support the groups, the members, and ultimately the newcomer.
"To fulfill our fellowship's primary purpose, the Nar-Anon Family Groups
have joined together to create a structure that develops, coordinates,
and maintains services on behalf of Nar-Anon as a whole." --
Family Groups Concept One
As members and as a group, we support the service structure through our group donations and taking on service commitments at the level of area, region, and beyond. The service structure in turn provides member services such as guidelines, literature, newsletters, conventions and much more.
The Florida Region extends an open invitation for members and GSR's to participate in our committees: the Convention, Helpline, Outreach, Narateen and Website Committees. The only requirement is a desire to serve others, to bring the good news of Nar-Anon to those in need. Interested? Please Contact Us!

While Tradition Nine states in part, "Our groups as such, ought never to be organized," it does suggest that an orderly structure and reasonable procedures will make it possible for Nar-Anon to carry the message with maximum effectiveness."
Service is a wonderful way to give back to the program for the peace and serenity members receive when using the tools of Nar-Anon.
