Al-Anon Resources

One last request as your Chair

8/3/2021

Hello all! - it has been a pleasure serving you as your Chair of Intergroup! - I am asking one last thing (well maybe two!!) of you all as I leave this office...

First - Thank you for your service! - No matter what it is you do - from chairing a meeting to hosting online meetings to just showing up - thank you
Please take a few minutes to take this survey - it rally does help l-Anon reach more professional services to let them know we can be of service to their clients.
This survey is for anyone in Al-Anon regardless of length of time in the program. Please share with other members so we can get the most complete view of the impact of Al-Anon on members’ lives.

Second - As the outgoing District rep i would really like to encourage all of you who attend a meeting to please get your group involved not just at your meeting, but as a part of Al-Anon as a whole - Each group should be represented at the local and state level of service -

EACH GROUP needs to have a group representative for the state meetings (a GR) to go to two state meetings a year - travel expenses are covered by your group and you all can caravan to save money and enjoy a day with each other on the way to and from Columbus! - It is the only way for your group to have a say in the running of the whole wide fellowship of Al-Anon - WE ARE THE VOICE of Al-Anon - and if your group is not involved - you have no voice -and that to me is sad indeed.

Mary C and Irena H are our District Representatives and they are our voice at the state level - BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BE MAKING OUR DECISIONS FOR US BECAUSE INDIVIDUAL GROUPS ARE NOT BEING REPRESENTED!!! - WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO VOTE AND GIVE OUR DISTRICTS REPRESENTATION OUR DECISIONS SO THE (DR) CAN GIVE VOICE TO OUR DESIRE.

EACH GROUP needs to have a representative for the intergroup meeting (an ISR) to go to one meeting a month on the first Tuesday at 7:00 for one hour to see what is going on in our area and take the info back to your group - we are not isolated members of Al-Anon - and when you have no representation - that is what you are - isolated - please - get your group involved
And right now the intergroup needs a few positions covered - so if you are thinking you would like to expand your recovery. join us and see what we do for you!

The next intergroup meeting is on TUESDAY, AUGUST 3RD AT 7:00 AT THE INTERGROUP OFFICE - we are practicing safe distancing and sanitizing and would not be judgmental about whether you wear a mask (please bring one though) and we would love to see you there.

And now i will step down and leave the outcome of this plea in my Higher Powers hands - please follow your heart and get involved -

love in service- Mickie G.
