Besides forums and assemblies, some regions host a variety of additional fellowship activities including conventions, campouts, speaker meetings, and dances. Some regions hold such events in conjunction with their RSC meetings. Regionwide activities can foster a broader sense of unity among members of all the groups and areas served by the regional committee. Conventions and other regional activities should serve primarily as celebrations of recovery, not sources of RSC operating funds. Why? One reason is that, as the essay on our Eleventh Concept suggests, “... when we make a commitment to fund the work of each level of the service structure exclusively through group contributions, we find it easier to maintain a strong link between our groups and our other service units.” The region that begins depending heavily on income from regional activities for its operating funds may find itself less focused on the needs of its NA community than a region depending primarily on group contributions.
