Purpose of the Web Site
The purpose of the CNCA 06 Area web site is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous by providing a resource on the internet where alcoholics can get information about the activities and business pertaining to the California Northern Coastal Area 06 of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Next link is for Policies of the Website Committee (Policies/Guidelines/Procedures) as named in the Motions book.
Website Committee Policies/Guidelines/Procedures: (approved by Committee June 2016). (Currently new version is under revision, in ad hoc, so this link is temporary but fulfills the passed motion to have Website Guidelines online until the new version is ready for posting.)
The CNCA Website Committee meets at 11am, the 4th Saturday of the month except the 3rd Saturday in December. We meet at the Petaluma Community Center at 320 N. McDowell Blvd; Petaluma, CA.

Our service panels coincide with the panel of CNCA 06 beginning in January of the odd year and is a two year panel ending December 31 on the even year. To serve on this committee , write down your name, phone, and e-mail, and please give this to any Area officer in the Summer or Fall of the even year, which is the second year of our service panels.
We welcome your interest.
Types of work: In addition to updating Pre-Defined content such as newsletters, Chair Preview, Delegates Corner, a motions pages, calendars (both static and interactive calendars), we have various projects each panel as time permits.
Primary purpose content and newcomer content are both topics we address regularly as well as Self-Support information which renews or updates each panel, as information comes to this committee via the Chair of the Area Committee. We have had discussion topics to get more GSR information onto this Website and that would take approval of the Area Committee by Housekeeping motion or regular motion to get new content added to the Website. Before any member creates a project, it must be discussed with the full committee and brought to approval to proceed and if it involves new content, that also needs the approval of the Area Committee after Committee approval, before proceeding with that particular project but all projects relate to bringing information to the Website people can use, and benefit from. We use a literature link instead of a literature pdf. Tradition statements will be in the FAQ, as a link to a pdf document which will also link to the AA Guidelines on the Internet.
This page is edited with the approval of the Website Committee each panel as they are autonomous to have their own Standing Committee page each panel. Our Committee has seven members, and two serve in a technical capacity, taking care of the back end of the website . Editor and Alternate editor are elected in the January meeting of each new panel. Other positions are available as well. Ask a Committee member or the Chair of the Committee for more information if you are interested in serving on the Website Committee. Spanish speaking members may serve as there is a Spanish side of the Website that needs editing as well as the English side of the Website site. This is a bilingual site with content in English and Spanish, serving the Area’s communication needs for events, newsletters and additional information.
