The latest news from our Delegate to the World Service Conference. Jeffrey F. is serving a three-year term on Panel 58. He represents our Area, Pennsylvania (Area 48) at the World Service Conference and is our focal point for information to and from the World Service Office, the Board, and the Trustees of Al-Anon Family Groups.
As the 60th World Service Conference comes to an end, there is acceptance for how things are.
Jeffrey is struggling to stay emotionally connected while attending the WSC remotely, but otherwise, the first Virtual World Service Conference is going well.
Jeffrey begins his third and final year as Pennsylvania’s Delegate to the World Service Conference. Instead of traveling to Virginia Beach, though, he’s glued to a computer screen somewhere in Pennsylvania.
Jeffrey writes his last post on the Conference. He says goodbye to his fellow Delegates and prepares to relax for a few days in Virginia Beach. Here’s his story on how the Conference wrapped up.
The last day of the Conference is here. While I’m looking forward to getting back to my normal schedule, I know I’m going to miss the important work we’ve been doing here.
Frustration, Tiredness, Sadness. Those are the words that come to mind when I reflect on Monday. Being at Conference can be grueling, but it also demonstrates that the process works.
I’ve been so busy at the Conference, that I’m beginning to lose track of the days. Today is going to be another busy day, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t moments of serenity, like a beautiful sunrise — or moments of joy, like sharing ice cream with my fellow Delegates.
It’s Sunday and I’m already feeling the pressure of being on time to the opening session, but I wanted to get my latest post to you. There’s an excitement in the air here as we get ready to do the business of Al-Anon and I’m honored to be a part of it. Thanks to all of you for your support.
It’s Saturday, the first day of the conference. I’m all set for the day and for the conference. Yesterday, I even had a chance to stick my toes in the water.
In a few days, I’ll be leaving for Virginia Beach, where I’m honored to represent our Area at the 59th World Service Conference, serving as Pennsylvania’s Delegate. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed these past few weeks as I prepared my inch-thick binder with all the materials I’ll need, but I am excited, too — anxious to meet the friends I made last year and inspired to be serving the fellowship of Al-Anon.
