SLAA HOW 20-Week Workshop Series

We’d like to invite you to work the steps the HOW way along with us! This is a 20-part weekly workshop series for those committed to beginning a new sponsor/sponsee relationship and working through all 12 steps the HOW way. Sponsors and sponsees welcome (the organisers will help find sponsee-sponsor matches). The workshop’s format varies: some weeks we have presentations and other weeks we have guest speakers. Content intended to be instructive and relevant to the step currently being worked.

Registration link:

Those wishing to participate must register. The deadline for registering as a sponsee is midnight on the 28th of June (New York Local Time).
Once registered, you will be provided with a link to the introductory workshop for the series. Attendance at introductory sessions and timely payment is mandatory* for those wishing to participate in subsequent weeks.

Once registered, sponsees will be given the link to an induction meeting on Saturday 29th of June, 2024 at 8:30AM (New York Local Time) which will give an idea of what to expect when the 20-week course begins the following week. Following the induction, the weekly workshop will commence on Saturday the 6th of July and run for 20 straight weeks (with a week off in August). Workshops are 90 minutes and will occur at the same time each week: 8:30AM (New York Local Time)

The workshop is a fundraiser for the SLAA fellowship and asks for a $60 donation. Donations are used for meeting expenses and contributions to your intergroup and Fellowship-Wide Services.

Please note there is also a separate induction meeting for those registering as a sponsor a week earlier on Saturday 22nd of June, 2024 at 8:30AM Eastern Time. Please register in advance of this if you would like to participate as a sponsor.
