Ok, ok, you’re probably wondering why I’m reading an order form of all things. It’s because I wanted to read the entire general Al-Anon Newcomer Packet (item # K-10) & this is the eighth item in it.
WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This form mentions that The Forum magazine is the voice of the fellowship today. …So really this qualifies this magazine as the only hard copy Conference Approved Literature (CAL) item that can continuously reflect the current times! 😮
2. Even though it’s considered CAL (per page 102 of the 2014-2017 “Al-Anon /Alateen Service Manual” (item # P-24/27)), this will be my only entry regarding The Forum. (I think I would need a separate blog altogether to do justice to all the gems that are in each monthly edition!)
**BONUS (12/20/16): An updated electronic version of this order form can be printed out from the World Service Office website by clicking this link: Forum Order Form
