WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This job seems to be a lot of checking & double-checking on the status of groups (more so than I ever thought)! And much like any of the other Coordinator positions, they’re a link between World Service Office & the Districts in the Area. What I found really interesting though is that this guideline mentions that some Areas have different criteria for registering groups than World Service. I would have thought the process would be exactly the same, but there are several reasons listed why it’s not!
2. My favorite quote from this guideline is: “As with any other service position in Al-Anon, the greatest skill a member can offer is his or her willingness.”
**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-36 Guideline
