Assembly 2022 bids requested before May 1, 2021

Post date: March 23, 2021

‘Roadtrip 2022’ volunteers needed now: bid-deadline: July 2021

Would you be interested in helping shape the 2022 Road Trip with our Board of Trustees?
At the 2020 Area Assembly a motion was accepted to present a bid to the World Service Office for this event, that is an opportunity to personally meet and interact with those in service to Al-Anon at the Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and the Executive Director.
If Ontario South is selected to host the event, as a Canadian member you will:

  • hear personal stories from Al-Anon members who are currently serving as Trustees
  • learn more about how Al-Anon spreads the “message of hope” worldwide
  • get an opportunity to share your own thoughts and concerns regarding our fellowship
  • experience first-hand how your donations are working
  • get information about what happens in committees such as Literature, Policy, The Forum and more

This special event and opportunity usually happens in October, following a quarterly Board meeting.

A committee is needed to formulate a bid by July 2021 so that it can be evaluated by the Area Executive. Feel free to download, distribute and discuss this even with your fellow members and groups.

Literature Distribution Centre needs help

Our Literature Distribution Centre needs your help with getting the copies of ‘Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism’ to the membership and the public. They have many in stock that could not be distributed to groups due to the canceling of our regular face-to-face AWSC and Assembly. Also still in stock: the ‘2020 World Conference Summary’ that was presented during the virtual Assembly by our Ontario South Delegate. Please have a look at the Literature Corner and the Literature Home pages for order details.
