For newcomers seeking help, please make sure that your group meeting information is correct.

Ask yourself and your group, “What did I need when I went to my first meeting?” Specific location instructions about your meeting can be helpful to a newcomer attending Al‑Anon/Alateen for the first time. You may also want to consider that family members from out of town might be visiting and are not familiar with your community.

  • Is there a special door to gain access to the building?
  • Is there ample parking on the street?
  • Is there a room number for the Al-Anon/Alateen meeting?

Is there a volunteer from the group to be a “greeter” for those attending your Al‑Anon meeting for the first time? We want everyone to feel welcome in our Al‑Anon and Alateen meetings!

The new Group Records Change Web Form on the World Service Office (WSO) website gives members the option to submit their group changes directly to the WSO. Members can also use a printable PDF to submit changes through their Area Group Records process. Contact your District Representative (DR) for more information. For help with submitting Alateen changes, contact your Area Alateen Process Person (AAPP).
