When service boards and committees cease to be directly responsible to those they serve, they cease to be NA service boards and committees. This has nothing to do with the laws of the land. It has to do with the energy and potence of the service functions that are supposed to be happening. If no one knows about it, there is no knowledge or energy. It is like passing a motion that no one knows about. The motion will have force only so long as members understand it or support it. This is a characteristic of non-profit, self-help organizations. Information energizes.
