Open Service Positions

A CoDA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions

Tradition 7


Why is service part of recovery?

Those who have gone before us recognize that service is critical to recovery and is part of the Twelfth step. Service work is a place to practice recovery skills and extend our recovery to new areas of our lives. At the group level, CoDA members carry the message in many ways, by sharing in meetings, speaking to newcomers (with a focus on providing information rather than giving advice) and trying to adhere to CoDA principles in meetings and elsewhere in their lives. Members can start practicing these types of service from early on in their recovery.

The meeting will follow the successful recent format of 10 minutes per agenda item, with 30 second shares from each member before a vote is taken, if one is required. Please note that there may not be enough time in the meeting to go through any written reports in detail so we ask all members to come prepared, having read the reports and agenda items in advance, so that we have time for questions, and sharing and reflection during each agenda item.

Agenda item 15  – For this and the next NSC meeting we go with a majority vote i.e. the total of the in-favour votes is greater than the sum of the against and abstentions. The total of the votes is based on how many people are in the meeting and eligible to vote. Abstentions are made as members don’t have the confidence to make a yes or no decision
so need to be accounted for. 
Abstain – 1
Against – 0
In favour – 9 Motion carried

5th December 2020 NSC meeting – Agenda item 7
Propose that when discussions diverge away from the agenda item, the Chairman can clarify with the sharer the new discussion point and raise it as an independent AOB item added to the end of the meeting or a sub-

Public Liability Insurance Service Position

CoDA UK takes out an annual policy for groups requiring Public Liability Insurance for their venue. The cost of the policy is shared amongst the groups who need it at a considerable saving to the fellowship compared to groups sourcing Insurance policies individually. 

The Service position holder agrees the policy premium with an insurance provider and fulfils the associated administration (mindful of GDPR) which includes maintaining the venue list , communicating with the NSC Treasurer regarding premiums, overseeing the PLI email account addressing queries from Meetings and providing ongoing updates on the policy to the NSC committee.

The new holder of the position would be given a briefing regarding contact details of the insurance company and of the meetings that subscribe to the policy.

The time commitment is in the region of 6 hours when the premium requires renewal and then ongoing input replying to emails and updating spreadsheets which is fairly minimal. 

This is a service position on the National Service Committee so requires a person to have attended 3 NSC meetings

Outreach support- Member Networks

‘Outreach’ is the term used for many of the ways to carry the message of recovery, by reaching out to others, sharing our recoveries, and supporting one another. In this group, it means timed shares or phone calls with another CoDA member.”

The admins on the Outreach channels are looking to request support from experienced members to cover a series of positions including:

Newcomers Reps

  • Pasting the welcome document once a day or longer when someone joins the group.
  • Make sure you don’t paste when there’s someone waiting for an outreach response. Your pasting can make their request invisible.

Admins –

  • Your role is helping handle potential member complaints and raised safety issues. Other than that the group runs itself.

Secretary –

  • Keeping Welcome and GC document up to date
  • Posting the Welcome document each day that has had a new person join.
  • Answering comments on the document and incorporating changes.
  • Participating in Admin Group to read posts and see changes suggested there, incorporate if agreed.
  • Responding to comments and posts with lessons learned in the past. 
  • Perhaps write the lessons learned in this Intergroup document. 
  • Perhaps the Secretary of the Admin Outreach Group will write up the lessons learned for the Admins, so that new Admins can learn from our mistakes.
  • Handover to the next Secretary 

Email responder –

  • Answer emails from newcomers giving them joining links to the appropriate WhatsApp groups. Coda UK has put an email address, rather than public joining link, for the WhatsApp groups.

Email to find out more about the service opportunities

You can join many of these whatsapp channels via Member Networks

(CLC) – CoDA Literature Committee

“Story Gatherers” Project

We are in the process of compiling entries for a stand-alone new book called “Story Gatherers” project.

This stand-alone book, will celebrate our individual journey into CoDA and passing on our Experience, Strength and Hope to the CoDA Fellowship.

These will be stories from across the International World of CoDA. They will be similar, yet different, from the stories at the back of the CoDA Blue Book, written more than 30 years ago, but “Story Gatherers” will encompass the CoDA Fellowship worldwide, with people relating their own personal stories: of where they’ve come from, where they’ve been and where they’re heading, in their recovery in the program of Codependents Anonymous.

We are interested in people of all different diversity, ethnicity, race, religion, LGBGT etc. and especially immigrant families. It might also be helpful to hear different people’s stories whilst they might have been going through the COVID-19 pandemic and how it might have strengthened their resolve and recovery in the face of adversity, and their journey to discovering or rediscovering their own loving, kind, gentle non-judgemental and all accepting Higher Power.

All entries must be written and received, hopefully, by the end of the first week in February, and be between 900 – 4000words, or 3 to 10/12 pages long. These stories have to be edited etc. and presented for approval and acceptance for the CSC 2021 in Ottawa, Canada ahead of time.

Help others receive your valued Experience, Strength and Hope by giving the support of writing your own story for us.

Please send all submissions to:

6th Feb – NSC Open Meeting: Group Inventory

1-5pm online, with programmed breaks during the session

At a National Service Committee (NSC) group conscience meeting on 5th December 2020 it was agreed that there would be a Group Inventory meeting conducted as a priority. This is to help us reflect on our service, to carry out our service roles in a healthy way and to share about our experience in service with the wider fellowship. It will take place instead of our quarterly business meeting.

We invite the fellowship to join us for this session of reflection and discussion, and hope that the experience will assist in sharing the message of service and healthy groups with the fellowship. Group inventories can be used for step groups, home groups and service groups, and allow us to focus on how the traditions and our ultimate authority, a loving Higher Power as expressed to our group conscience, guide our work and our daily lives.

The session will end with a period of reflection to determine the way forward for some of the organisational challenges the NSC has been discussing in recent meetings. This will include next steps on how regularly the NSC meets, and confirmation of the next meeting where regular business will resume, including items of business carried over from previous meetings.

If you would like to attend, please email northregion@codauk.org to register for the meeting link, any time before the meeting, stating which group you attend most regularly. Details of how to join, what software platform you will need and more details on how the inventory will be carried out will be circulated the week before the event.

CoDA Service Conference 2020 Report

For the CSC held online over 24th, 25th & 26th August 2020

Hi Folks,

Just thought I would keep you updated and relate to you the amazing experiences of being your UK Senior Voting Entity Delegate this Summer at our annual CoDA Service Conference (CSC) 2020, which was totally virtual on Zoom for the very first time – and to hopefully encourage other CoDA members to give service to help their own “Recovery Through Service.”

CoDA’s CSC congregates annually and should have met in July this summer in Ottawa, Canada physically face-to-face, but due to COVID-19, this was re-arranged to produce the whole Business Conference virtually, thanks to our Events Committee’s hard work.

This is a time when VE (Voting Entity) Delegates from around the world and CoDA Boards and Committees come together and hold their annual CoDA CSC, where important decisions are made with the CoDA Board of Trustees – and the CoRe Board of CoDA (who do all the printing and produce all the CoDA Conference Approved Literature in the USA).

They make important decisions about Financial Budgets for the whole of CoDA for the previous and coming year/s and hold elections together with the IMC (which is the Issues and Mediation Committee) and where other Committees are recruited to give service – CoDA Committees that help turn the wheels of CoDA worldwide including the the United States & Canada.

Nancy O. Chair of CoDA Board of Trustees for 2020 and from Canada – was this year‘s Chair of CSC, and the Coda Events Committee did an amazing job of keeping our CoDA virtual world for the CSC in brilliant working order and on track.

We had two great Facilitators, who coordinated everything with a tremendous backup team and the IMC VEL (IMC Voting Entity Liaison) which observed and made sure all qualified Voting Entity Delegates, Alternate Delegates, CoDA Board members and Committee Chairs were given voice. The VEL kept us all in check making sure we were all eligible as VE Delegates to vote – as long as we were visible on the screen for the whole of each Motion and that we met the required quota for the forum.

The IMC VEL did a brilliant job. They’re in charge of vetting each VE (Voting Entity) from around the world, including USA, to make sure Intergroups send Delegates to represent the voice of their area or country.

There was representation from the USA from all the different states, and from Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Brazil, United Kingdom, Iran, Russia, Israel, Italy, Malta, and many other countries who were listening in by using YouTube – from as far afield as Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, India, Saudi Arabia, Cyprus, Spain, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Germany, Kenya, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and many more countries. There was also representation from the Chairs of all the Committees helping CoDA worldwide as follows:

CoDA Board of Trustees,
CoDA Resources Publishing, Inc. (CoRe),
Communications Committee,
Events Committee,
Finance Committee,
Outreach Committee (OR),
Hospitals & Institutions Committee (H&I), Issues & Mediation Committee (IMC)
Coda Literature Committee (CLC)
Co-NNections Committee,
Translation Management Committee
(TCM),
Spanish Outreach (SPO),
Service Structure Committee (SSC)
World Connections Committee (WCC).
Ad Hoc Committee (now disbanded)

We had several trial-run CSC meetings in the weeks leading up to the Conference and the final one was the night before on the evening of the 23rd of August 2020 – everyone was quite anxious as to how our very first full virtual CSC would stand up to our usual physical face-to-face CSC we have had in previous years.

However, we needn’t have worried as the superb arrangements made by the CoDA Events Committee was so well practised that by the time we all gathered together on Monday, the 24th of August 2020 at Pacific time 8am, Eastern time 11am, and local UK time 4 pm, we were raring to go.

CoDA‘s very first CoDA completely virtual CSC 2020 was a resounding success!
There has even been talk that we might think to possibly have alternate years of a virtual and the following year face-to-face CSC and then the following year virtual and so on CSCs in the future, but this will have to be put to Conference and to the CoDA Board vote and it’s also up to our Higher Power and Group Conscience of the whole CoDA Fellowship.

We began the first day with a count of all the Voting Entity Delegates present online and in full view being authorised by the IMC VEL (Voting Entity Liaison) vetting all who represented CoDA globally as VE Delegates. As I mentioned before, we had representation from all over the world.

There were also Alternate Delegates, who represent the Voting Entity Delegates when they’re indisposed, and of course we had Observers on YouTube who could dip in and out of the whole CSC 2020, but did not have voice.

Delegates from all over the world came forward to represent their countries or their states and the VE Delegates were introduced individually to Conference. There were 44 counted from all over the world including various states in the USA and a quorum of 29 was counted, who were required to be present for each Motion in order for it to be passed.

Our very first voting was to agree the adoption of the “30 second rule” followed by the Serenity Prayer to be ratified by conference – to be held before each Motion voted at CSC. This Motion was agreed before we had our first break of the day.

This “30 second rule” had been introduced at our CSC in Atlanta, the previous year, which I was able to bring back from the USA in October 2019 and has now been adopted by our NSC (National Service Committee), where we practice this rule in our meetings. This gives our Group Conscience the opportunity and space to invite our Higher Power to be present when we vote on any Issues or Motions (as mentioned in our CoDA 12 Service Concepts).

On the first day, we worked diligently to cover as much ground as possible, passing some very important Motions presented by the CoDA Board of Trustee, including proposed slight changes to three of the four CoDA Foundation Documents which have been referred to the CSC 2021 to be re-voted on where they will now have to be passed by a majority of 75%, and several Motions which have been referred to next year’s CSC for ratification; included the New CoDA 12 Service Concepts presented by Canada and hopefully confirmed at CSC 2021. (A list of all the motions passed during the CSC 2020 can be downloaded from coda.org).

During the breaks each day, members gave service by manning the virtual Hospitality Rooms, where we could meet other members virtually – kindly giving service for CoDA Daily Meetings or where representatives of different CoDA Committees gave a talk on their particular Committee and encouraged interest for members who might wish to join them in service.

The previous year when I visited Atlanta, Georgia to represent CoDA UK as you’re VE Delegate (voted in by the NSC for two years in April 2019), I had been asked to join various Committees and being your NSC Literature Secretary in the UK, I had great interest in the CLC (Coda Literature Committee) and also the Outreach Committee and Hospitals & Institutions Committee – as well as the Events Committee, but this year I was also asked to join the IMC which is the Issues and Mediation Committee, where I felt most privileged to be asked. It is a highly regarded Committee doing lots of very important service work for CoDA and incorporating a good working knowledge of the FSM (Fellowship Service Manual) and the CoDA By-Laws and also facilitates dispute mediation for Voting Entities, Intergroups and other CoDA entities as needed worldwide. I was recommended by their Committee to join, for which I thanked them. But then I was promptly told I had to then be ratified by the CSC at Conference.

I agreed to join them if I was accepted and found out that this is the only Committee besides the CoDA Board of Trustees and CoRe Board that has to be officially voted in by the CSC. This vote was held on the final day of the Conference where I was voted in to serve on the IMC Committee and for which I feel very privileged to give service. I must say I’ve already attended several committee meetings and this has proved to be an exceptional group of people. I feel very honoured to have been accepted and have so much to learn, studying the FSM (Fellowship Service Manual), which is on free download (and which every CoDA Group is recommended to possess a copy of). I know that serving in the IMC will help with my continuing recovery in the Fellowship of Codependence Anonymous.

I was also accepted onto the CLC (CoDA Literature Committee) another extremely talented and hard-working Committee and an exceptionally gifted group of people who edit, present, write and re-write the CoDA Literature which assists CoDA recovery throughout the world.

The CLC are servicing many different projects – one of which I am now honoured to be involved in called “Story Gatherers”. We are hoping this will culminate in members of CoDA coming forward from

  • the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Southeast Asia, as well as USA, Canada and South America and many more countries.

We are hoping to get Worldwide coverage and entries from all over the world, especially from ethnic minorities, immigrants groups, LGBGT, members of all different race, religion and ethnicity etc. who can contribute their wonderful stories for the Fellowship to communicate globally their Experience, Strength and Hope of Recovery in CoDA. (If you are interested, please contact gilliancoda@gmail.com for more details).

On the second day we began with great enthusiasm. However, after a short while we were zoom bombed by a disgruntled member mistakenly given the wrong credentials and therefore removed and made an Observer with no vote – not a very happy bunny – so the person continued to zoom bomb the Conference and we had to immediately disband the meeting and use a completely different ID and password to login – which took some time – quite a kerfuffle – but brilliantly dispatched. However, the zoom bomber again broke through, until our amazing communications people identify the loop-hole and resolved the situation. Undeterred, the Conference soldiered on and decided to continue and make up for lost time, extending our meeting, which was, as always, democratically voted on. “Progress Not Perfection”.

I don’t know whether I was spurred on by the enthusiasm, as a typical recovering codependent to work that bit harder – but I found my voice and courage and spoke up on several occasions for lots of different Motions. I had made sure I was well versed on several issues as I had studied the files I had printed over several weeks prior to the CSC. I was able to bring both local as well as Intergroup and NSC views forward as your representative Senior Voting Entity Delegate from the UK.

After an exhausting previous day, we arrived at our third and final day on the 26th of August. Each morning we had the results of the previous day’s votes which we downloaded and these Motions were then approved by Conference. On each day I had visited the Hospitality Committee virtual Rooms for a Finance, Outreach, CLC and IMC Presentations and several early CoDA Meetings.

Over the three CSC days Committee Annual Reports & Goals and Committee Budgets were presented. On the last day Conference voted in the new CoDA Board of Trustees and the CoRe Board and the IMC Committee. These were all ratified by Conference. Various Motions were passed, including importantly the CoDA Finance Committee and CoRe Budgets (very few Motions failed), but as mentioned before, several were referred for reviewing for next year’s CSC, including the very important one presented by Canada for the new 12 Service Concepts Booklet and download, which will be presented again at CSC 2021.

Our CoDA Service Conference (CSC) is usually held over a full period of 4 working days of business (usually at least 8-hour days) followed by a 3-day Convention full of Speakers, Workshops and lots of Fellowship. We had to squeeze 4-days work into 3-days virtual, and 8-hours plus into 5-hours daily. No mean feat, but we managed it.

However, on the last day we voted to continue to finish important Motions and work until we had finish (until almost 1am UK time – 8pm EST/5pm PST). We even managed to vote not to exclude our ‘zoom bomber’ – ever true to our CoDA Tradition 5.

I found the whole CSC 2020 exhilarating and informative, and I was in awe of the dedication and professionalism of the way the whole Conference was conducted by the two Facilitators and the Events Committee; all the amazing Committees giving service freely to CoDA.

There were a few people from the Board of Trustees, CoRe Board and IMC plus several other Committees who were retiring, but still wished to continue giving service to CoDA,
and some quite emotional farewells. What a great band of fellow CoDA members and an amazing CoDA Fellowship. Some members have been there from the very beginning – 34 years ago when CoDA was first formed on 22nd October, 1986.

My overall feeling after CSC 2020 was of what an amazing group of people CoDA Fellowship has amassed “Carrying The Message” of Experience, Strength and Hope and encouraging the Hope of Recovery Through Service which is the rallying call from the CoDA Board of Trustees and CSC for the coming year.

They also reiterated that coda.org needs donations to help keep the Fellowship of CoDA, CoDA Board of Trustees and CoRe and all the Committees able to continue Carrying the Message of Recovery as many meetings are now virtual but are not at this moment in time sending contributions, which they would normally do.

One final note. I attempted to get our UK Long Version of the Serenity Prayer accepted first as a Motion with the intension of it eventually being accepted as a VE Issue (Voting Entity Issue). The Board refused the Motion but I had messages of encouragement from several saying that they loved our Long Serenity Prayer. I resolved, with Higher Power’s guidance, to present it to the CLC who have decided to take it under their wing and to present it under their banner at Conference in 2021 to be used as an official CoDA Long Version
(i.e. CoDA Long and Short version of the Preamble) and possibly include it in their CoDA Prayer Book. They love it! So here’s hoping. Higher Power does work in mysterious ways.

Thank you CoDA. it has been an amazing journey which has been the saving of my sanity – to be given the privilege of serving CoDA UK as your VE Delegate at the CSC’s face-to-face 2019 in Atlanta and this year’s virtual CSC this summer.

Many years ago, I came into my first CoDA meeting a quite broken, exhausted human being and now thanks to CoDA, I can stand strong in my own truth and feel comfortable in my own skin for the very first time in my life. I am so grateful to the CoDA Programme of Recovery and the CoDA Fellowship. .

I hope to continue to give service in CoDA locally, nationally and internationally, and to serve on the IMC, CLC and Outreach Committees to the best of my ability, hopefully doing justice to them, whilst continuing on my Road To Happy Destiny, One Day at A Time.

Thank you to CoDA and thank you to my Higher Power for giving me the gift of recovery from codependence and the opportunity to give service. If I can do this – then anyone in CoDA can. “Trust the Process”. I was told in my very first meeting – “Keep Coming Back – It Works If You Work It – So Work It – You’re Worth It !” And I do – And I am.

In gratitude, love, fellowship and service.

NSC Public Information

“Public information” is the term used by many 12-Step fellowships for approved procedures and literature for outreach work to professionals, institutions, and the public at large. 

CoDAUK Public Information Team are looking for new committee members to engage in a range of tasks defined across committee and region level. Our primary aim is an application of Step 12. We aim to carry the message to other co-dependents through outreach within the recovery space, with CoDA regions, and beyond.
So far this has looked like preparing ideas for a new CoDAUK poster, documenting CoDAUK digital footprint, writing a survey for the coDA membership, and reach out to organisations and teams in the recovery space.
If you would be interested in joining the team reach out to publicinformation@codauk.org to find out more.
