The 64th Annual Pennsylvania Al-Anon Area Assembly will be held from Friday, August 20, 2021, at 6:00 pm, and will run through noon on Sunday, August 22, 2021, as a virtual Zoom meeting. Our Assembly is the largest Al-Anon/Alateen group conscience in Pennsylvania and is an opportunity for every group to have their voice heard and vote counted. The Area Assembly is the business meeting where the groups send their representatives to express a voice and vote on behalf of the group.
This is the first of a three-year term for this panel where we are gathering all the Group Representatives together to do the business of Al-Anon in Pennsylvania. We have lots of information to share with you that you can take back to your groups, and we also have general administrative business to conduct, such as the approval of the minutes from last year’s Assembly and approval of the Treasurer’s Report and next year’s budget. Although this is a virtual Assembly, we will also give each of you an opportunity to participate in workshops on Friday evening, as well as an Al-Anon meeting on Friday and Saturday evenings. After the business session on Saturday evening, we will hear from Jean L, the Regional Trustee for the US North Central Region on the AFG Board of Trustees. Before we close on Sunday, we will also have a Spiritual Speaker.
You must be registered by Friday, August 6, to have a ‘seat’ in the meeting. Please note, to facilitate Assembly planning there are no ‘walk-ins’, please. You must be signed in on the Zoom platform and have completed the Sign-in process by 8:30 am on Saturday, August 21, and Sunday, August 22, to have a vote during the Assembly.
Registration Confirmation Email
Be on the lookout for your registration confirmation email. It will be emailed immediately after registration. If you don’t see it right away, please check your spam folder, as the computer-generated email sometimes winds up there. In it, you will be given a link to the Assembly 2021 Webpage. Please familiarize yourself with this webpage prior to Assembly. Here you will find the Zoom links for all the practice sessions and for each day of the Assembly. Additionally, you will find the Sign-in link, the Agenda, reports, and other relevant documents and information. The Assembly 2021 Webpage is the one place – the only place – you need to go to find everything regarding this Assembly.
To help our Assembly be successful, there are three opportunities to attend practice sessions prior to Assembly. Please sign up and plan to attend at least one. They are offered on August 5th, 8th, and 10th, and you will make your practice session choices when you register. In addition to Zoom etiquette, we will show you the logistical procedures we use to participate in discussions and how to make a motion. We will also give you an opportunity to practice Sign-in, voting, and using breakout rooms, and answer any questions you might have. You will choose your practice session when you register. Your confirmation email will list the practice session you signed up for.
* To fully participate in the Assembly with voice and vote, you will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone. If you do not have an appropriate device, you might consider sharing a device with another GR or possibly with your alternate GR if you feel comfortable with that.
* There will be tech support available during each of the practice sessions as well as the virtual Assembly, but please try to get all of your questions and technical problems resolved during one of the practice sessions.
Questions: please contact Ralph H., Alternate Delegate, 484-706-0159; [email protected]
