CAL – Al-Anon/Alateen Participation in an AA Area Convention (Item # G-7)

G-7 Guideline

WHAT I LEARNED: Because Al-Anon is self-supporting, contributions from AA are considered “outside” & are therefore declined (see Tradition 7).  In the case of AA Conventions where there is Al-Anon participation, AA is entitled to keep all monies from Al-Anon registrations, meals, & workshops.  However, there is a little note in this guideline that Al-Anon may accept a contribution from AA as an acknowledgement of our support.  This must shaking-hands-in-agreement-smiley-emoticonbe the spirit of cooperation with AA that’s mentioned in Tradition 6!

G-7 updated thumbnail**UPDATE (5/5/17): This guideline was revised in 2013.  An updated electronic version of this guideline can now be downloaded directly from the World Service Office website by clicking this link: G-7 Guideline
