Calling all members of District 4 to Service!!

In January 2021, a new District 4 panel or board will take the helm.  Service at this level is an awesome way to practice the principles of the Al-Anon program!

The District 4 Panel is composed of Group Reps, Officers and Coordinators.  Officer and coordinators, like GRs generally serve for a term of 3 years.  Each term begins January 1st and ends December 31st three years later.  The current panel is now in its 3rd year and its term ends December 31, 2020.  Members holding current positions may choose to stand again. Elections will be held for the officers and coordinators by all members of the panel at our October district meeting.  

The District meets 6 times a year, on a Saturday, generally for 2 ½ hours, either in person or via Zoom.    It makes decisions on various matters and sponsors the district’s annual Day in Al-Anon.   Two (2) years of consistent membership in Al-Anon is recommended as a baseline.  Dual program members (AA & Al-Anon) are eligible to hold most positions at the District level.

The positions with job responsibilities are listed below.  Full descriptions of these positions can be found at Al-Anon.org (https://al-anon.org/for-members/members-resources/manuals-and-guidelines).
