IMPORTANT MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT
FROM AL-ANON WORLD OFFICE (WSO):
Dear Al-Anon Members,
As many of you scramble to ensure availability of Al-Anon recovery, we are grateful to have as a resource the discussions occurring within the links of service on various AFG Connects communities. From these trusted servants, we can offer members who call us at the WSO two main messages of experience, strength, and hope about establishing temporary meetings:
From the shared experiences of our members, we know that most electronic platforms offer the ability to configure settings, many affecting anonymity. Settings to consider:
Other group meeting considerations:
So members and newcomers can find you, please share temporary meeting information with your local Al-Anon Information Service, District Representative, and Area Group Records Coordinator so temporary information can be posted on local websites depending on your group conscience. We still want families and friends of alcoholics to be able to find us!
All of us look forward to resuming our activities as they were before the current health crisis. In the meantime, the process of growing forward through this together is sure to bring added insight.
Thanks for all you are doing for families and friends of alcoholics!
Please email AISGR and District 20 if you have started an electronic meeting (phone or online) to substitute for your face-to-face meeting and are willing to share it with newcomers and our Al-Anon/Alateen community. Also, if you have found a great electronic online or phone platform please share your that information so we can share it with other meetings that want to do the same.
District 20: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours in Service,
Al-Anon and Alateen Information Service of Grand Rapids Area
