Get Ready for Brazil!!
We understand that many of you are anxious to get specific information about the upcoming convention at the Rio Centro Convention Center, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 11–14 June 2015. We are finally ready to go on sale at http://www.na.org/wcna!
The two things that have delayed us are availability of hotel rooms and challenges with financial processing. Brazil operates with a controlled currency, and setting up the process to register directly in Brazilian Reals is taking longer than we’ve been promised. We have decided to go on sale now, with registrations available in US Dollars, and hotels available in Brazilian Reals. Brazilians with an international credit card can normally register, just like any other previous convention. The registration site to process Brazilian Reals is expected to be available in a few days. To receive notification about this or any other convention news, please subscribe to convention updates: www.na.org/subscribe. There is no “penalty” for waiting to register at this point. We will be constantly working on adding different types of hotel properties, local tours, pre- and post-convention trips, etc. to our hotel links site. Please continue to check the site from the link on the convention page www.na.org/wcna for the latest additions.

Overcoming addiction, one meeting at a time
As most people have heard of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), many are probably aware that AA meetings are held in communities throughout Carver County. Unfortunately, alcohol is not the only vice challenging area citizens.
It’s worth asking, how aware are citizens regarding local chapters of Narcotics Anonymous (NA)?
For the record, several NA groups meet in the area, offering help, support, and hope to those battling addiction, an affliction that has no cure and often creates daily struggles for those within its grasp. In western Carver County, NA holds three regular group meetings:
