PURPOSE AND MISSION OF Southern Ontario C.A. AREA ARCHIVE COMMITTEE
As part of the Southern Ontario Cocaine Anonymous Area Service Committee , the Archive Committee Chair (est. July 11, 2015) acts as a liaison to C.A. fellowship in Southern Ontario and assists their needs in regards to C.A.’s history in Southern Ontario and communicating these needs to the SOCA Archivist who is most familiar with the contents of the SOCA Archive repository.
The purpose of the SOCA Archive Committee is to collect, preserve, organize, and catalogue the work of Cocaine Anonymous in Southern Ontario; make its history accessible to C.A. members; and curate a context for understanding C.A.’s progression, principles and traditions.
The history of the founding of the fellowship in Southern Ontario (February 2, 1987) is a vital and informative resource. We need always acknowledge our background in order to secure our collective future. Historic records help us to sift through our day-to-day experience in recovery and reach back for the shared experience of the past. Sorting the myth from the facts we can ensure that our original message of recovery, unity and service remains the same in a changing, growing, expanding Fellowship.
