2017 Pressure Relief Meeting
for Debtors Anonymous
A Fellowship-wide Service Opportunity
The purpose of a pressure relief meeting is to review our financial situation, help restore manageability to our financial lives, and thereby provide support for our recovery from compulsive debting.

In February 2017, the Chair of the General Service Board convened an ad hoc committee to address the Fellowship’s $48,000.00 projected deficit in our FY 17 spending plan. The members of the ad hoc committee realize this situation is far from ideal.
Debtors Anonymous has recently accessed a portion of our prudent reserve to address the shortfall. Although the Fellowship has not incurred unsecured debt, we realize our current course of spending will not be sustainable.
To this end, the ad hoc committee is asking for active participation from our Fellowship in a pressure relief-style conference call.
