Open to CLA members at all levels of recovery.
We welcome everyone who feels they may have a problem with clutter to join us and would like to learn more about CLA.
If you're new to CLA, we encourage you to introduce yourself, so we can give you are warm welcome and answer any questions.
Just in case you're new and wondering about CLA membership, our Third Tradition states, "The only requirement for CLA membership is a desire to stop cluttering."

.

We ask visitors to join us in also striving to be courteous at all times, speak politely, and show respect of all others on our phone meetings, activity sessions, and open activity phone lines.
During a meeting or session, please follow the secretary/moderator's lead; only address the moderator when sharing or speaking. We do not directly address others on the lines during meetings and sessions to avoid cross-talk and allow for calm, peaceful order on the line at all times.

.

Regular long-distance charges apply.

.

Please keep your phone muted at all times (using the conference company system's mute/un-mute feature), except when you are sharing, to avoid background noise and ensure the best sound quality during the call.
When un-muting your phone, carefully listen for a second or two after pressing the keys to un-mute, to allow time to hear if anyone else has already begun speaking to avoid interruption.

Recovery Telephone Meetings

.

Clutterers Anonymous offers a program of recovery from cluttering using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of CLA. A CLA group is a gathering of two or more clutterers who come together to share experience, strength and hope so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from clutter.
All CLA meetings are guided by and follow the Twelve Traditions of CLA.

Activity Phone Lines & Activity Sessions

.

Clutterers Anonymous suggests the use of the CLA Tools of Recovery to aid members in their recovery from clutterering.

There is one daily CLA Activity Session on each of CLA's three Activity Phone Lines--offering opportunities for three separate CLA Activity Sessions each day. Each of the three daily sessions (Victory & Goals on the Commitment Line, Focused Action Session on the Action Line, and the Shared Activity Session) has its own distinct format. CLA's Activity Sessions, made available through CLA members' generous service, offer an opportunity to put our recovery into practice on a daily basis by living our Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and through giving service to others as a way to fulfill our primary purpose--carrying the CLA message of recovery to the clutterer who still suffers.

Please join us as we reach out to newcomers, offer support to fellow members in taking their actions, receive support for ourselves in our decluttering and recovery, while enjoying the fellowship of other CLA members.

Action is the magic word.

.

Participation in CLA's Activity Sessions and the use of our open CLA Phone Activity Lines may be used for bookending, meeting CLA buddies, and decluttering activities.

CLA's activity sessions are not, and do not take the place of, a CLA 12-Step/Recovery Meeting.

Participation in our Activity Sessions and open Activity Lines is with the understanding, willing cooperation, and agreement of being guided by and adhering to CLA's Twelve Traditions at all times.
We strive to focus on our CLA recovery and program, remembering our Twelve Traditions, remaining mindful of our one primary purpose as a group (i.e. when two or more CLA members are gathered together--you and me. . .) which is to carry our CLA message of recovery to the clutterer who still suffers.

As individual guardians of our CLA Fellowship through adherence to our Traditions, when on our CLA Phone Lines and during our Activity Sessions we only mention, read, and/or discuss CLA and A.A. conference-approved literature. (When reading AA's literature aloud on CLA's lines, please read the text as written, i.e. refrain from substituting other wording.)
We refrain from the mention and discussion of other 12-Step and Recovery Programs; as well as avoid the mention of any clutter-related or non-related facility, outside enterprise, business, decluttering organization, media, or cluttering/decluttering system and program outside of CLA, as well as being ever mindful to never promote our own private business or personal agenda. We remain ever mindful of our one primary purpose, when we are on a CLA Phone Line or Activity Session (made available for us through CLA's WSO), which is solely to carry our message of recovery to other clutterers--while affording us the continued benefit of this means to use our CLA tools for our own personal growth and recovery.

The "open" Activity Phone Lines are not facilitated; others may not be on the line at all times.
If you hear music, you are the only participant in the conference, i.e. the only person on the line.

There is an activity session each day on each one of CLA's three activity phone lines: the Focused Action Session on the Action Line, Victories & Goals Check-in on the Commitment Line, and Shared Activity Session on the Shared Activity Line--which are all made possible thanks to faithful CLA members' service.
(Details about CLA's Activity Phone Lines and Activity Sessions below.)

.

.

When calling Activity Lines, before entering conference, recording gives number of participants & request to announce yourself.
Do not announce yourself. You're not included in count.
If you hear music, no one else is on the line.
Mute: press *6 Unmute: press *6 (press the # sign!)
