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 be the spirit of cooperation with AA that’s mentioned in Tradition 6!
**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
