Meeting ID: 508 484 1975
Password: 432350


Al-Anon’s cofounder, Lois W., met with Henrietta S., first General Secretary of the Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, and Margaret D., first Editor of The Forum, in June 1982. Their recollections rekindle the spirit of commitment of our pioneer members in Al-Anon’s formative days. Lois, Henrietta, and Margaret share on a variety of subjects, including Bill W.’s support and encouragement; how Al-Anon got its name; humorous anecdotes about the working conditions at Al-Anon’s early offices; helping newcomers find meetings; The Forum; the formation of Alateen; the growth of Al-Anon internationally; and the establishment of the World Service Conference. There is a timeless message for newcomers and longtime members alike about love and service.
