At the very first Grow meeting in 1957, there was a decision that Grow members should try to identify, write down and keep those beliefs, values, attitudes and problem-solving techniques that assisted in their recovery. Consequently, a separate type of meeting was held where problems were not discussed but instead recovery methods were discussed. This second style of meeting became known as a Leadership Meeting. What members agreed was helping their growth and recovery was written down and all writings were preserved. This was the beginning of the written Program, which includes Grow’s Blue Book that is used by members in each meeting. Over the last few years the National Program Team has been working with committed and seasoned Grow members to update Grow’s Blue Book. This update will be available mid February. There have been over 111 Leadership Meetings, with over 730 members contributing to this important project.
