Alateen participations in events

Whenever Alateen is included in local or Area events, the event must be in compliance with Area Alateen Safety and Behavioral Requirements.

Safety Requirements and Alateen Events

Special events provide the opportunity for Alateen and Al-Anon members to share recovery with others outside of their groups. As with all things Alateen, safety is our primary concern. Any event using the Alateen name must have Safety and Behavioral Requirements that meet or exceed the Alateen Safety and Behavioral Requirements of the Area in which it is held. The Alateen Conferences guideline (G-16) and the Alateen Safety Guidelines (G-34) provide guidance applicable to all Alateen events.

2003 Alateen Motion from the Board of Trustees

Use of the name “Alateen” for all events requires:

  • Connection with the Area(s)
  • Safety Requirements and a plan for implementing them at the event
  • Certified Al-Anon Members Involved in Alateen Service (AMIAS)
