MPS Committee

The purpose of Member and Public Services (MPS) in ACA is to support ACA Members in becoming responsible for their own well-being through ACA-related materials, and to provide information for the Public and professionals by providing ACA-related resources and services.

Check here for the latest MPS Committee (and earlier Outreach Committee) reports to the WSO Board.

  • MPS Statistics
  • H-and-I Committee

    The Hospital and Institutions (H&I) sub-committee is responsible to the WSO for liaison with these institutions, including the potential development of ACA meetings with the institutions and ensuring materials are available to the institutions upon request in support of such meetings.

     Check here for the latest Hospital and Institutions Committee committee reports to the WSO Board.

  • InterGroups
  • Delegate Training
  • Regions

    Regional Service Committees are part of the Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families service structure that support the membership. This ACA service structure includes meetings, Intergroups, Regions, and the World Service Organization (WSO). Information on Regions can be found in the Big Red Book, pages 604-605. Regions consist of members of Intergroups and meetings in a specific geographic areas. 

    In April 2017, the WSO Board and the Annual Business Conference (ABC) reaffirmed WSO’s “historical commitment to the formation of regional service entities as important channels for improving service to the fellowship, and for increasing connections between groups, Intergroups, and the WSO.” To register a new Region, or to find existing Regions, click on the buttons on this page. Newly forming Regions can consult the Meeting Directory and Intergroups pages to learn about the fellowship in their area. They can also connect with other Regions by contacting the Membership and Public Service Committee: MPSChair@adultchildren.org. 

    Important Note: The WSO Board and the ABC in 2017 enacted an interim policy guiding Region formation and is updating WSO’s Regions policy and map to reflect the current global fellowship. Newly emerging Regions should consult the Interim Regions Policy and Interim Regions Map.
