A bookmark rather than a pamphlet, this very informative piece of CAL explains who Sponsors are and what Sponsorship is. “It is important to recognize that relationships sometimes change as we grow in Al-Anon. In order to continue growing, it may become necessary to change Sponsors. Sponsorship is not a lifelong commitment; letting go is not a sign of failure”. Sponsorship is: A relationship built on equality, anonymity and trust. A commitment to practice healthy communication – not based on intimidation or demands. An agreement to recover and grow together - not to struggle in isolation. A spiritual relationship with no strings attached. [Excerpt from, Sponsorship – Working together to Recover, M-78]


The World Service Conference convenes annually. During this time, one elected Delegate from each assembly area along with the Board of Trustees, the Executive Committee, and Al-Anon administrative staff members of the World Service Office come together to discuss and make decisions on important matters affecting Al-Anon/Alateen as a whole.

The Conference Summary is the annual written report to the Al-Anon/Alateen groups of the World Service Conference activities. It includes a report of World Service activities during the previous year. Additionally, thought-provoking, growth-providing ideas can be adapted or adopted for outreach and "inreach," including specific skits, workshops, and meeting topics.
