Every year, each Area in the World Service Conference Structure is required to take part in the Annual Alateen Recertification process in order to continue to use the Alateen name. This is explained in the 2003 Alateen Motion from the Board of Trustees and the policy for Alateen. Both are found beginning on page 93 of the 2018-2021 Al‑Anon/Alateen Service Manual (P-24/27), version two (2).

The recertification process has two goals that verify:

  1. Every registered Alateen group has currently certified Al-Anon Members Involved in Alateen Service (AMIAS):
    • as Group Sponsor(s)
    • as the Current Mailing Address (CMA)
    • as a Phone Contact for the public
  1. The current certification of all AMIAS

We are requesting that Areas complete the Alateen recertification by June 15, 2022! 

 Contact your Area Alateen Coordinator, Area Alateen Process Person, or District Representative to verify the process in your Area. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to share your recovery with teens and younger members!
