A message from the World Service Office.
You are not alone. Within Areas, Districts, and Al-Anon Information Services members are talking to each other and reasoning things out in addressing platform, meeting format, and other group questions. Ask for help!
Al-Anon’s unity and perhaps even its survival depends on adherence to our Traditions and principles. Your group is welcome to establish a temporary online meeting to occur at the same day and time as its face-to-face meetings in accordance with the group’s conscience.
So members and newcomers can find you, please share temporary meeting information with your local Al-Anon Information Service so temporary information can be posted on local websites depending on your group conscience. We still want families and friends of alcoholics to be able to find us! Please send temporary meeting information to email@example.com.
All of us look forward to resuming our activities as they were before the current health crisis. In the meantime, the process of growing forward through this together is sure to bring added insight.
The Al-Anon Literature Distribution Center, LDC, is now closed until further notice. We will be accepting mail-in orders as usual. If you wish to expedite your order, please use email below:

Cancellation Notice – 2020 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention
It is with heavy hearts that the 2020 Tennessee Area Convention Planning Committee members announce the decision to cancel the 2020 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention.
Due to the continued uncertainty caused by the current public health crisis, and the risks and complications associated with Covid-19, the Planning Committee considered several alternatives before reaching the difficult decision to cancel the event currently scheduled for July 31st – August 2nd this year. We feel it is in the best interest of all members of our recovery community (Al-Anon, Alateen and AA) to cancel the Convention and pass the baton to the Middle Tennessee Convention Planning Committee for next year’s Area Convention.
If you have already pre-registered for this year’s Convention, you should hear from our Registration Chairperson in the next few weeks.
The Planning Committee will proceed to wrap up all other activities associated with this year’s Convention, and file our final report with the AWSC prior to the 2020 Fall AWSC, per our Area Guidelines.
The Planning Committee would like to thank you all for your love and continued support, and we hope to see you in Middle Tennessee in 2021.
Watch for local events to support the 2021 Tennessee Area Al-Anon/Alateen Convention, coming to a venue near you as soon as we can gather again!
