Stepping Stones Visit

Reflections as I walked through: I never know what a difference I will make in the lives of others How does my home reflect my recovery? Am I proud of my membership in Al-Anon? Lois and Bill were human. Not just in the early stories!

Where it all begana sense of dedication and solitude. Never in my wildest dreams Three

generations of family members at Stepping Stones (and our friend Norm W.!) The feeling that Lois and Bill are family that I never had the chance

to meet. Each Delegate is a small, but integral part of the whole conference. Year Twos How tos: Speak from the podium Participate in a Task Force Presentation Be a Mentor Encourage new Delegates Assembly Application

Group Rep District Rep Area Coordinator Alternate Group Rep Assembly attendee Chosen Agenda Items WSC 2018 CAI: When does group autonomy end and an issue begins affecting another group or Al-Anon or A.A. as a whole?

Service beyond the group level. How do we instill enthusiasm and positivity for leadership positions in our program? What kind of new and ongoing training does your Area have for District Representatives? CAI: Full conference discussion: When does group autonomy end and an issue begins affecting another group or Al-Anon or A.A. as a whole? Scenarios A group conscience for a meeting decides they do not want to have a Group Representative. They tell the current G.R. that they are no longer needed. A group conscience for a meeting decides that they will allow

members to share for as long as they like during meetings. A group decides to have 10 minutes of silent meditation at the beginning of the meeting. A bell is rung to mark this beginning and end of this time. A group decides to pay for a member to attend the International Convention and bring a report back. Service beyond the group level. How do we instill enthusiasm and positivity for

leadership positions in our program? What kind of new and ongoing training does your Area have for District Representatives? Is Service Beyond the Group Level in our Area: Fun? Educational?

Recovery Based? Open to Everyone? Engaging? Group Oriented? Welcoming of new members? Full Conference Discussion: Area Reserve Fund Presentation Many areas have large reserve funds. Some areas have investments in stocks and bonds, and CDs.

Discussion about what constitutes excess funds. Discussion about what a reserve is useful for. Reserve Fund Discussion The spiritual foundation for Al-Anons world services is contained in the General Warranties of the Conference, Article 12 of the Charter. 1. that only sufficient operating funds, including an ample reserve, be its prudent financial principle. All the Warranties counsel prudenceprudence in personal relations, prudence in money matters and prudence in our contacts with the world around us. For Al-Anon, prudence is a middle ground, a channel between fear on the one hand and recklessness on the other. Prudence creates a climate of harmony, effectiveness and consistent spiritual progress. These Warranties express the wisdom of

taking thought for the future based on lessons of the past. They protect us against needless errors and the natural human temptations of wealth, prestige and power. Full Conference Discussion Questions Why was our Area *reserve fund established? When was the last time our Area reviewed the purpose? What is/are the Areas current goal(s) for the *reserve fund? How have Area *reserve funds been utilized in the past? Was there an emergency, a special project, a substantial decline in income, or another reason?

Regional Trustee Process (RT) The Board of Trustees asked the Conference to participate in a conversation related to the current Regional Trustee Process. The goal was to solicit comments and ideas that might lead to revisions/clarifications that would improve the current process. Our ongoing objective is to receive increasing numbers of qualified Regional Trustee candidates.

The Regional Trustee Process: Could YOU be the next Regional Trustee? In our Area, the Assembly makes the decision. Your resume will need to be sent to our Chair around WSC time so that it can be submitted by the August 2019 deadline. January/February 2019 is the time to decide. AWSC presents to the Spring Assembly. If we want to have a nominee for the SW Regional Trustees. 10 continuous Al-Anon Service; No dual

Open Policy Committee Meeting: Meditation Meetings When does group autonomy end and an issue begins affecting another group or Al-Anon or A.A. as a whole? Policy Committee Recommendation

Thought Force conduct a KBDM on the topic of Mediation Meetings. Thought Force will discuss parameters. Grey areas: no dispute. 20 seconds and 20 minutes. What effect would it have on the newcomer who walks into a meeting with longer silence? Would it violate Tradition 3, 4 or 5? Is it an endorsement of a certain philosophy that is not Al-Anon? OPEN BOARD MEETING Should the Board Have Virtual Meetings? How will this impact Confidentiality?

Can you perform as effectively virtually? Is a 4 day virtual board meeting effective? More attractive to members who have less travel flexibility. What happens to mentorship after hours? Would you lose cohesiveness and personal relationships? Trustee, Joyce Bush Holds Cassandra during a Finance
