Stand up for our Alateens
[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ello, I am your new Area 14 Alateen Coordinator. With the help of my HP and a number of trusted servants to provide assistance, the work is slowly getting done. By the time you read this message, the majority of Al-Anon Members In Alateen Service (AMIAS) will be recertified for another year and we will have a group of new Sponsors to join us in service to Alateens.
The Midlake 2015 Conference is our main Alateen event for the year. It will be held May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at Devils Head Resort, 56330 Bluff Road, Merrimac, WI 53561. The Registration Form must be mailed before May 1, 2015. No registrations will be accepted after May 10, 2015. A permission form must be completed, signed, and notarized by parent/legal guardian. Conference Guidelines should be read by Sponsors, Alateens and Parents to ensure the welfare and enjoyment of everyone. Sponsors may contact me for needed forms, or questions.
As I travel throughout Area 14, I will be asking AMIAS to consider the open position of Area Alternate Alateen Coordinator to provide a stronger support system for all AMIAS and Alateen groups. If your District does not have an Alateen Coordinator, that too is a great opportunity to be of service to Alateen. I hope each of you will talk to your HP and to your Al-Anon Sponsor about these positions.
In service and fellowship,
Illinois North, Panel 55
