ACA Ready, Set, Go!

 The Boise ACA community is honored to be hosting a FREE Ready, Set, GO!! (one-day, ACA 12 Step) workshop on October 21st from 9 am to 4:30 pm.


It’s at the First Presbyterian Church in downtown Boise. It will be facilitated by Dave S., from the Fitchburg Serenity Club in Madison, Wisconsin, who has been leading these workshops around the country for the past couple years.


The facilitator is an experienced member of ACA and leader of this work. We are lucky to have him volunteering his time and service in walking ACAs through the spiritual actions of the 12 Steps in one day


Because we are a small community, we are able to reach out to surrounding regions/areas and invite others to attend, as well as to lend their support to our fledgling community.
For more information or to reserve a spot, contact Brie at brieaca@gmail.com
