hi all,

for europe, we are discussing something similar at the moment. we have
started the other way round though: created a google form into which
people can add their information (and planning to spread the link
through our networks).
if you are interested, i can send you the link to that form, in case
someone would want to create something similar?

and another thing i just remembered:
a colleague compiled a list of websites and facebook pages where it is
possible to post courses - so maybe that is a place to search for
NA-teachers, too?

> Though the Activist is a good place to start, I know that there are many teachers in NA that haven't listed there. I haven't listed my PDCs there for several years, and I know of several other active older teachers, and a large number of younger ones, who don't list their courses there. So I think Lawrence's suggestion of Google archive searches will be necessary to get accurate results.
