WHAT I LEARNED: 1. Apparently a meeting on wheels has nothing to do with food or meals on wheels. Ha ha! 😜 It’s basically 3-4 people holding a “mock” meeting to show non-members & professionals (doctors, social workers, counselors, etc…) what kind of help is available in the rooms. Rather than just leaving outreach pamphlets & materials (that might be thrown away), this method brings a meeting to others & hopefully makes more of a lasting impact.
2. This guideline referenced a few Al‑Anon films I had never heard of: “Our Conference-approved videocassettes, ‘Al-Anon Speaks for Itself’ & ‘Alateen Tells It Like It Is’ may be shown beforehand.” It turns out item # AV-10 & item # AV-16 respectively have been discontinued but what I learned (while going down the rabbit hole researching them) will be in my next blog entry, so be sure to stay tuned…
**UPDATE (5/5/17): This guideline was revised in 2014. An updated electronic version of this guideline can now be downloaded directly from the World Service Office website by clicking this link: G-22 Guideline
