Clarification was given about eligibility: Al-Anon Members serving as Group Representatives or Alternate Group Representatives may not be dual members according to World Service Policy. Intergroup Representatives are outside the World Service Structure in our area, so there is no eligibility restriction. Some information about service opportunities is available on our web site.
