Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ’s

1. How do I get my Al-Anon/Alateen-related event posted?

Please use our new upload form for events to communicate your information to the website coordinator. It is very much appreciated if you can enter event details in the form’s information boxes so that we can minimize re-entry for the website. Flyers are always welcome as well. Preferred flyer format is PDF or JPG/PNG.

2. Why use the new online form for meeting/group changes when I can send an email just as quickly?

Please communicate any and all changes to meetings and groups via our new online Group Records Registration / Change Form. Even if it is ‘just’ a small change in the starting time…

Why not write a direct email instead? Your quick message has a ripple effect: the Ontario South Website is not the only place where it needs to be implemented. There are many more members involved in service. Imagine all of them having to scan their email inbox for possible meeting/group changes and wondering whether their fellow trusted servants are already in the loop… The single notification channel that is the online form is quicker, more efficient and it lessens errors due to manual re-entry by many…

Consider it your personal service not just to your fellows in service, but to all newcomers, so that they may use our websites to find out where and when our meetings are held.

3. Website change requests, suggestions and error reporting

If you spot an error: don’t be shy, reach out and let me know. Do you have suggestions and requests for improving the Ontario South website? Even better: would you like to become involved in our future website team? Send me an email. I’d love to have a chat with you about your availability and ideas!
