Congratulations to the newly formed Global Electronic Area, and welcome to the 62nd World Service Conference!

During the first Assembly for the electronic groups which formed part of a non-panel WSC Area, the Group Representatives elected an Area Delegate, Chairperson, Secretary, and Treasurer. As set forth in the World Service Handbook section of the 2022–2025 Al‑Anon/Alateen Service Manual (P-24/27) v1, the Area then notified the World Service Office of its intention to send a Delegate to the 2022 World Service Conference. At Conference, the Delegate was enthusiastically welcomed with a unanimous vote and seated with a warm round of applause.

For some background and discussion about the evolution of work that brought this goal to fruition, see pages 33–36 and page 78 of the 2021 World Service Conference Summary. 

Congratulations to all who participated in the achievement of this exciting milestone for groups meeting electronically and for our fellowship as a whole!
