Media Library

The NIAFG Media Library contains CD's of Al-Anon and Alateen speakers from Al-Anon and AA Illinois State and International Conventions and Conferences, Al-Anon World Service Conference, as well as NCRDM, TEAM, and other service events such as local Assemblies.

An important part of learning for many members of Al-Anon is hearing the story of members who have been in the program for a period of time. Their story of what it was like before, and what it is like now, offers hope and learning about the principles of the Al-Anon program.

What is on the CD's
  • IL AFG  and AA State conference and NIA Spring Conference is a 40 - 50 min talk by one speaker on their personal story of Al-Anon recovery
  • WSO Conference contains one to three Spiritual Speakers in a 40 - 50 min talk and 2 CD's containing a panel of 7 to 8 speakers talking about how service has helped with recovery
  • The AA International Conference contains breakout sessions in a meeting format where there is a 5 min introduction, followed by a 10 - 15 min lead or panel of speakers on a specific topic, followed by 1 hour of sharing from Al-Anon members from all over the world.

Due to the length of the AA Intl Conf sessions, they are available on a data CD in  MP3 format and not in Audio format.  This means it will play on your computer or downloaded into an MP3 player, but will not play on an ordinary CD player.  Some newer cars can play and MP3, but we cannot guarantee it.
