NACHATROOM.ORG - Service Opportunities

If you are interested in chairing meetings, please familiarize yourself with our chatroom rules. We have flexible clean time requirements. Our Trusted Servants are expected to have a history of being friendly with their new friends and welcoming our visitors.

Volunteers are expected to be non-confrontational: "Work the steps or die MF'er" and "brimstone and fire" pep talks are not conducive towards the desired atmosphere here. You will need to understand that people may have just found us doing a Google search, they may not yet fully accept they have a problem, or they may want a little more information about NA meetings before they go to their first one. Trusted servants must be patient, "let go of the results," and tell people "here is what worked for me" instead of "this is what you should do."

We cannot control the opinions and statements of everyone in chat. We may even be dismayed by the things that are said here. Please set the best example and follow these guidelines. Trusted servants with the capacity to be compassionate and somewhat tolerant will do well here.

We acknowledge you may have several (or even many) years of experience working with others in your home group, and we're glad you're here.

We will not consider individuals whom we have had to repeatedly ban from the chatroom for disruptive conduct until they have attained six months clean AND they have not been banned from the chatroom for at least as long.

Your motivation must be helping others. Not "getting to ban people." Moderators who abuse the kick/ban function and repeatedly fail to adjust their attitude may be subject to a temporary or permanent demotion.

We have some flexibility on clean time requirements because our meetings need to take place reliably and we wish to extend service opportunities to anyone whom it would benefit.

Want to be of service?

Normally chairing is a weekly committment (for as long as you want it) but if you can't promise us forever, you CAN commit to a two week (or however long) term and then give the slot to somebody else when your term is up. Type !schedule in the chatroom to see what's open.

Members who are reliable and/or fulfill the short terms they agree to, can be re-added as often as they want if we have an open meeting slot.
