Definition
A recovery meeting or group is formed when two or more clutterers gather together to share their experience, strength, and hope, so that they may solve their common problem with clutter and help each other to recover, using the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of CLA.

We have a variety of meetings and some are better attended than others. Some members prefer smaller, more intimate meetings which allow for more individual sharing. Some prefer the energy and diversity of attendees in the larger meetings. Please sample several and you will find one that suits you.

Members
The only requirement for CLA℠ membership is a desire to stop cluttering. Meetings are open to everyone, including non-clutterers, or closed, including only clutterers. Ideally, each meeting has an elected delegate who, among other things, votes its group conscience at WSO General Meetings.

How Meetings are Presented

  • Face-to-Face, which are held in physical locations
  • Phone, which are held on telephone conference lines
  • Virtual, which are held on the Internet

Types of Meetings.

CLA offers the following types of recovery meetings. Note: Phone activity sessions are offered as a supplement to recovery meetings which contain the foundational elements of the CLA 12th Step Program. The 12 Steps & 12 Traditions, the underpinning of every recovery meeting, provide the roadmap to recovery offered by Clutterers Anonymous. Activity sessions do not take the place of recovery meetings.

Recovery Meetings. A recovery meeting or group is formed when two or more clutterers gather at a physical location (face-to-face meeting) or on a conference call (phone meeting) to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem with clutter and help each other to recover. The meetings are guided by CLA’s “12 Steps & 12 Traditions“, and are facilitated by a CLA member. Everyone is welcome. International and long-distance charges may apply.

Phone Activity Sessions. Here’s your opportunity to declutter with the support and encouragement of other clutterers. Everyone is welcome.  A phone activity session is a moderator-led gathering of two or more clutterers who come together on a CLA conference call line on a designated day and time. Clutterers actively declutter, set goals, make commitments, announce victories, give and receive support, bookend, and meet CLA buddies. Activity sessions are guided by the 12 Traditions of CLA but are not, and do not take the place of, CLA recovery meetings. International and long-distance charges may apply.

Virtual Meetings/Sessions. Our virtual meetings are open to any CLA member. You need to contact the person listed for the access details. The majority of these were face-to-face meetings prior to the pandemic. Note: These meetings are listed as a courtesy only and WSO does not attest to each group’s adherence to CLA’s “12 Steps & 12 Traditions” and therefore the meetings should be attended with that in mind.

Start-Ups
If you can’t find a face-to-face meeting in your area, consider attending a phone meeting or starting a face-to-face meeting. See “How to Start a CLA℠ Meeting.”
