The latest news from our Delegate to the World Service Conference. Lori F. is serving a three-year term on Panel 61. She 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. Here, she will be sharing various stories and articles of interest to the members of the Pennsylvania Area.
Lori’s heart often thinks of the many families and friends of alcoholics who have been unable to attend meetings or have not found Al-Anon yet due to various reasons over the past several months. Across the state, some groups are able to start resuming face-to-face meetings, some are transitioning with a virtual component, and some remain temporarily virtual. The virtual world has ushered in new opportunities for people to find help and hope in Al-Anon, while at the same time has added some challenges and obstacles. In this document, she shares some thoughts on welcoming in today’s new world.
At Pennsylvania’s 2021 Assembly in August, Lori presented her update on what happened at the 2021 World Service Conference (WSC) in April. Read her report and see her presentation.
At Pennsylvania’s May Area World Service Committee (AWSC) meeting, Lori presented her update on what happened at the 2021 World Service Conference (WSC) in April. Read her report and see her presentation. Also included are the WSC Highlights (prepared by WSO in English and Spanish).
Lori shares her first thoughts about the 2021 World Service Conference with gratitude in her heart.
As a vital link of service, I ask for your support in seeking eligible members to volunteer to serve at the WSO level. Resumes are being accepted for our Northeast Regional Trustee (3-year term), Trustee at Large, and Member of Executive Committee for Real Property Management (ECRPM).
