Welcome to the Minnesota South Area Al-Anon and Alateen Members web page. We look forward to providing news of happenings in the Area, open access to resources for literature, meeting materials to aid in starting new Al-Anon/Alateen meetings or to supplement existing meetings, blank digital forms for common Al-Anon-related tasks and whatever else may help others on their recovery path from the family disease of alcoholism.
This page will remain open to the public for now. Consideration is being given to requiring a password-protected log in for members in service to our MN South Area, Districts, and Groups to securely access non-public resources such as area and committee meeting agendas, minutes, Delegates’ Reports, archive materials, Coordinators’ Reports, service position descriptions, fillable forms, and much more.
Minnesota Fellowship Weekend is Closing
January 2017 brought the sad news that Minnesota Fellowship Weekend is closing after the 35th year of the event. At its December meeting, the Fellowship weekend board unanimously voted to cancel the 2017 event and suspend all future Minnesota Fellowship Weekend events. For more, read the 12/29/2016 letter of MNFW Board and Trustees.
Each year for about a dozen years, Minnesota South Area has distributed a calendar that lists events such as district meetings, Area Assemblies and conferences. The calendar also includes a roster of Area Officers and other members of the Area World Service Committee (ASWC). At the October Assembly, copies were given to Group Representatives to take back to their groups. Recently Minneapolis Al-Anon/Alateen Information Services and St. Paul Al-Anon/Alateen Intergroup received copies for groups that have not yet received them.
You can download your own copy of the 2017 Minnesota South Area Calendar. For reasons of anonymity, the roster has been removed.
Changing your Al‑Anon group’s information
If anything about your group changes, the World Service Office, the Area and your District Representative should be notified. You should fill out a special form (GR-1) and forward it to the Area Group Records Coordinator <firstname.lastname@example.org>. You can download the GR-1 form and instructions on how to fill it out from the group information change page on the WSO members’ website. If the group is in the metro area, please also notify Minneapolis Al-Anon/Alateen Information Services (<email@example.com> or 952-920-3961).
