Subject 2006 Issue that was tabled
If a state submits a state issue to the Service Conference, and that issue is assigned to a committee, and the state disagrees with that committee's
response, the state may submit the issue to the floor of that or subsequent Service Conference for a group conscience vote of all the delegates.
Intent To insure that issues can be submitted to the group conscience of the entire service conference, allowing everyone's voice to be heard and
thereby eliminating the possibiility of a committee having too much power or control.

Subject Changes to "Patterns and Characteristics"
Item: TITLE of additional suggested category with accompanying bullet descriptions:
EXAGGERATED SENSE OF SELF-WORTH PATTERNS:
I perceive myself as superior to others
I believe my ideas to be the best
I deserve praise and recongition
I expected others to meet my needs and desires
I place little value on what others think and feel
I believe displays of emotion are a sign of weakness
I use charm and charisma to convince you of my capacity for compassion
I believe the job will only be done correctly if I do it
I know what is best for you
I know what is right - I know what is wrong
I am in touch with only shallow feelings which I exaggerate in order to avoid deeper feelings.
Intent There seems to be a group of men and women who find their way to CoDA due to their distress, but are unable to see themselves in the
"Patterns and Characteristics". Our intention here is to address this potential blind spot, and to help them understand that their behavor is a
style of codependence designed unconsciously to mask deeper feelings of pain.
