Come participate in the planning Thursdays 8pm.  Palm Springs Unity Day Weekly Planning Meeting

Street Trooping
Street Trooping is where we drop off cards with the CMA helpline at places where those struggling with Crystal meth are likely to find them.  Requires 1 year of sobriety or 6 months with sponsor approval.

Volunteer with Public Information and Outreach!
PI&O needs your help to carry the message to all parts of our district that are currently underrepresented:  Orange County, San Gabriel/Riverside, Desert Cities and San Fernando Valley.  We are looking for local volunteers in those areas to join us for monthly planning meetings and help us plan and execute deeper participation in those communities.  Please contact PI&O if interested!

PI&O Outreach Committee meeting 4th Saturday of the month at 10am. Public Information and Outreach (PI&O) offers many ways to be of service in carrying the message of recovery inside and outside of the fellowship, like our booth at events like PRIDE, the newsletter and street trooping. We meet every fourth Saturday of the month on Zoom and we would love to see you there! All are welcome.

Be involved in local CMA H&I Panels or Service

CMAinLA H&I (Hospitals & Institutions) takes meetings with Speaker Panels to hospitals, institutions, recovery centers, treatment facilities and jails. We take meetings to addicts who are unable to get out to a meeting on their own. When you volunteer to speak on an H&I panel, you are participating in your recovery, practicing the twelfth step of CMA by taking the message of CMA to the addict who still suffers.

Has your meeting elected an H&I representative? If not, please appoint an H&I rep to receive updates from H&I and have them complete this form: H&I Rep Form.

Interested in speaking on an H&I panel? Add your name to the H&I speaker list by completing this form (6 months sobriety required): H&I Panel Speaker Form
