7th Tradition

7th Tradition Distributions

After groups meet their regular expenses, most donate the funds beyond a prudent reserve to their local service structures, intergroups and the CMA General Services Office to help with their expenses. Such expenses include producing recovery literature and chips; operating a telephone hotline and website; and helping host conferences. These contributions also assist with supporting meetings worldwide, providing public information and outreach, and carrying the message to those in hospitals and institutions.

According to the Fourth Tradition, each group is autonomous except in matters affecting CMA as a whole. Therefore, it’s up to each group to decide how to use its resources. NorCalCMA Intergroup approved these suggested guidelines: 50% to Local (NorCalCMA), 30% to Area (CAA), and 20% to World (GSO).
