70th Anniversary Virtual Celebration

Al‑Anon Family Groups—Serving Members for 70 Years

Seventieth Anniversary logo

70th Anniversary – Global Unity!

We are amazed by the overwhelming response but disheartened to realize that we failed to think abundantly when we originally opened registration for Al‑Anon’s 70th Anniversary Virtual Celebration. To make amends we have a “Plan B” to allow more members to participate, but we need your help to expand our capacity even further.

We’ve added 500 more tickets and together we can turn these into thousands more attending. Although any individual can register, we encourage you to register a gathering with other members to celebrate by watching together.

The only limit is our imagination. Gatherings can be organized at the group-, District- or Area‑level. They could also be just a few Al‑Anon friends, or service structures which would increase participation by members across the globe. Keep in mind that getting together no longer means just in person, gatherings may also be virtual by screen sharing the event.

As a reminder, the event takes place on July 10, 2021, at 2pm EDT. Registration reopens on June 14, 2021 @ 12:00 PM EDT through June 28, 2021 @ 5:00 PM EDT. Please limit one registration per gathering/individual. Gathering registrations will be asked for estimated group size.

To increase our trilingual participation, a certain number of tickets will be reserved for Spanish- and French‑speaking gatherings/individuals. If we receive more registrations than we have available tickets, gatherings will be chosen first by random lottery drawing, followed by individuals chosen via random lottery drawing.

The celebration of the remarkable 70‑year history of Al‑Anon Family Groups continues in the Al‑Anon Family Groups Mobile App starting in August and continuing through November!

Each one‑hour session will include recordings of both speakers. Up to 300 attendees per language (English, French, and Spanish) will be able to join the 70th Anniversary Replay meetings in the Mobile App on a first come, first serve basis, giving you more opportunities to listen on your own or with a group of Al‑Anon friends.

Below is the schedule of replays to accommodate our worldwide fellowship. We hope that one of these times will work for you:

  • Thursday, August 19, 2021 @ 2 am EDT
  • Tuesday, September 21, 2021 @ 8 am EDT
  • Saturday, October 9, 2021 @ 2 pm EDT
  • Wednesday, November 17, 2021 @ 8 pm EST
