Great Convenors Needed!

Each LifeRing meeting has its own unique flavor based on the convenor, the participants and the number of attendees. We are actively recruiting new convenors to help us with our exponential growth.

If you have 6-months continual sobriety, an understanding of the LifeRing 3-S principals and a desire to give back, please consider joining the LifeRing Convenor Community. We offer flexible hours and the benefits are great!

Please reach out to our Service Center, complete our Prospective Convenor Information Form (PCIF) or call 800.811.4142 for more information.

    Does a life ring conveyor get paid? I would be interested in trying to get a regular meeting going in the KCMO metro area. There is a big demand for recover programming and meetings.

      Hi Jason. LifeRing convenors are volunteers. The benefits are: A really, really big slice of satisfaction knowing you’re helping others just like you who are searching for substance use recovery. You can read about being a LifeRing Convenor here:

    the chart is self explanatory. might be better understood if it were larger? this is good information!

      Thanks, Kathleen. Unfortunately, there’s only so much space on a standard webpage. The image is set to rescale to fit all screens regardless of your browsing device. Smartphones and androids have a magnification gesture you can use to increase image size. If you’re a luddite like me, you can simply press Ctrl++ on your keyboard. To reduce, press Ctrl+-. Who needs readers??

    I just love a chart that has no explanation of what any of the numbers stand for. Totally useless.

      Thanks for the constructive feedback, Laura. The chart shows the number of attendees in LifeRing Meetings during a one week period of time. For instance: Wednesday @ 9:00am had 57 people in attendance.
