The Fellowship Wide Services Office fulfills our primary purpose as stated in Tradition Five, "to carry the S.L.A.A. message to the sex and love addict who still suffers". F.W.S. handles the following:
Provides worldwide meeting information to newcomers, to members moving or traveling to other locations, as well as to other interested parties via the website, telephone, mail and e-mail. Our office hours are Monday through Thursday 9:00am to 5:00pm CST.
Maintains a database of worldwide Groups, Intergroups, Lone Groups, group contacts, meeting times and dates via the F.W.S. website. In addition keeps separate databases for Conference members, Committee members and F.W.S. Newsletter subscribers.
Gives free information to potential newcomers as well as to professionals who may be interested in further information about S.L.A.A.
Provides/Updates group starter kits and assists new groups in getting started.
Publishes the F.W.S. Newsletter with the help of several people and committees approximately four times per year. The F.W.S. Newsletter is distributed via e-mail or hard copy for anyone that does not have access to email.

Supports Conference Committees in their work such as helping provide prison outreach to correctional institutes, assist with production of the Journal and creating new recovery products/tools and new literature.

This involves securing a site, handling logistics, securing housing, food and audio/visual equipment, handling all aspects of pre and onsite registration, administering the Travel Equalization Fund, obtaining local volunteer help, running the auction, processing all monies, and attending to anything that may arise when sponsoring a conference.
Has to be maintained so that all of the above can happen.
