Area 61 Service Positions Zoom Workshop
June 26, 2021 @ 9:45 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Important Information about Upcoming Elections
Dear Al-Anon Members:
Something important will be happening at the Area 61 AFG Fall Assembly on September 25, 2021…elections for Area Officer and Coordinator positions! The Growing Service Committee has put together a PowerPoint workshop, “Service + Me = Recovery”, available via Zoom. It will address Job Descriptions for officer and coordinator service positions. Members will be available to share their service experiences and answer any questions you might have…all from the comfort of your own home!
The Zoom workshop will be Saturday, June 26 at 10 AM. Area Officer positions are elected from outgoing/former DR’s who have remained active on the Area level and regularly attend meetings. The Coordinator positions are available to all Al-Anon members who also regularly attend meetings. Dual members would be excluded from Officer/Coordinator positions but are welcomed to serve in other ways within the Al-Anon fellowship. Members in the past have discovered that when they got busy, they got better! So, stepping into any of the positions is a great way to keep Al-Anon healthy and available for those are already members as well as those who have yet to find their way to Al-Anon.
The Group Service Committee would also be willing to give the Zoom workshop as part of your District meeting or, if your district doesn’t have a District Meeting, for a group of Al-Anon members interested in looking to grow their own recoveries through service. The PowerPoint could be tailored to your needs. To cover all Officer/Coordinator positions, it would take approximately one to one and a half hours. Too long? It would take perhaps 15 minutes to cover a couple of positions that may have caught the attention of most of the members in your group. If you let us know ahead of time which positions your group is most interested in, we can modify the presentation to meet your needs. To take advantage of this opportunity, please email Carol at email@example.com. Be prepared to tell us what job positions you’d like to have included and we’ll set up a mutually agreeable time for a personalized workshop.
We all have skills that can benefit others in our fellowship but sometimes confusion and fear discourage us from service. Perhaps this workshop can clarify and encourage you! As the Al-Anon Declaration says:
Let It Begin with Me
When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
Let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen
Always be there, and – Let It Begin with Me
Al-Anon was there for us when we needed it…now it’s our turn to be there when Al-Anon needs us!
In love and service,
Group Service Committee
