CAL – Members Interested in Speaking (Item # G-1)

G-1 Guideline

WHAT I LEARNED: When I was first asked to be a speaker 2 years ago, I ran to get this item & it wasn’t so much as a guideline as it was a goldmine!  I even used it as a checklist to make sure I had certain points covered.  Re-reading it now, I see the importance of anonymity (especially Traditions 11 & 12) when speaking.  For instance, if I’m taped, the recording becomes property of the taper which might eventually end up online or on an app somewhere.  So, I may be speaking to an Al-Anon group, but that doesn’t mean future listeners will be Al-Anon members!
