OTTAWA MEETINGS' ORIGINAL MATERIALS ARCHIVES


Original Materials and Literature used by the early Ottawa ACA Groups during their meetings

Listed below is a table of all the materials that were being used by the Ottawa groups including the Inner Peace Group for their meetings over the last 30 years. Most of the documents were adopted from literature by early adult child researchers before the ACA World Services Organization existed. A few docs were created by the Ottawa groups themselves to help the functioning during the meeting. Many of the documents are the same as those of the ACA WSO while others have minor differences. The revived Inner Peace
in-person meetings will use the ACA Big Red book as it's source for documents to keep expenses down.
