What is the Seventh Tradition?
Every CMA Group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
1. CMA Member Donations
If you are a member of the fellowship of Crystal Meth Anonymous you can contribute directly to Crystal Meth Anonymous and the Greater Los Angeles District of CMA . Non-members of Crystal Meth Anonymous and/or any outside organization can not be accepted under any circumstances and, if received, will be respectfully returned.
2. CMA Group Donations
Some groups, after paying their meetings expenses and putting aside enough money for a prudent reserve, find that they have money left over to give to the service structure of CMA as a whole. Your meeting decides what percentage of that money goes to which entity of CMA. There are no rules or requirements about this. Some meetings simply don’t take in enough money to make contributions, other meetings can. The addresses below are provided fore your meeting can make such a contribution. Most meetings hold a business meeting and take a group conscience to decide these matters. Some will have to determine how much money to put away for lean times or unexpected expenses. Our rule of thumb is to build up a prudent reserve of 2 months of expenses. Funds above that are then divided between the service arms of our Fellowship.
If you are making a donation via snail mail with a check, please include your groups’ name and day of meeting on your check or money order.
