The Delegate's Corner


  Image result for letter clipart Letter from our Utah Area Delegate



With the beginning of a new year, we welcome a new Delegate to represent us at the annual Al-Anon World Service Conference (WSC.)  At our Fall 2016 Assembly, the Group Representatives from throughout the Area elected Nancy W. to serve as Delegate.  Nancy brings a wealth of Al-Anon experience and commitment to this new service position.  I hope you will all join me in wishing her well during her service over the next three years.


As my own term of service as your Delegate ends, I would like to thank all of you for your support, encouragement, and prayers.  Over the last three years, several challenging issues for our worldwide Fellowship have been addressed.  Among these are the final approval of family member bequests, rewriting of the policy regarding Al-Anon members who are also members of AA to better align with our spiritual principles, some significant financial needs, and changes in the leadership at the World Service Office.  Being a part of the largest Group Conscience in Al-Anon as these and other challenges have been addressed,  I have experienced an incredibly humbling sense of gratitude and love which will stay with me for the rest of my life  On a personal level, serving our Utah Area as Delegate has exposed more of my shortcomings and given me greater strength and more tools to grow stronger.  The spiritual experiences of attending the WSC have brought me closer to my Higher Power than I ever thought possible.  Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to serve.


Love and Hugs,

Patrick  M.
