Standing Committees

NorCal CMA relies on the effort and participation of our dedicated volunteers, committee chairs, and board members who work to make sure NorCal CMA is carrying our message in the spirit of the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts for World Service.

NorCal CMA has been organized by, and is responsible to, the groups that comprise our fellowship located in Northern California and for the purpose of coordinating the services which individual groups cannot provide. 

We're here to help you carry a message of recovery to the addict who still suffers.

In order for us to be able to bring a meeting to a facility, we need a minimum of four volunteers with a year or more of sobriety who is working the steps with a sponsor.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

NorCal CMA is committed to fostering safe, inclusive spaces for all recovering crystal meth addicts, regardless of age, race, physical appearance, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, background, disability, or other personal identifiers, while engaging our Fellowship around issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in their local meetings.

As our newest committee, we are still ramping up. If you would like to serve as a member of the DEI committee or if have other questions centered around issues of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, please email our chair: for additional information.

Inclusivity Statements

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee of NorCAL CMA has collected these inclusivity statements from across the fellowship of Crystal Meth Anonymous. These statements are being used in meetings all over the world and are wonderfully diverse, yet focused on the same goal: to increase the feeling of inclusivity in CMA meetings.

We’d like to offer this as a resource for your meeting in case you would like to add one of these to your meeting script. Feel free to use these statements as is, or adapt to the needs and group conscience of your meeting.
