Who may attend Intergroup Meetings?
Meetings are primarily for Intergroup
Representatives (IRs). These are Al-Anon and Alateen members
elected by their groups to represent their groups at the monthly meetings.
This is a one night a month commitment, with a huge payback to you and your
group. Note that an Intergroup Representative fills a different
position from a Group Representative (GR) who represents their
group at the Area Assembly and District Meetings. One person can fill
both positions, but a better arrangement is to have both a GR and IR, with
the GR also serving as an Alternate IR and the IR serving as an Alternate
You don’t need to be an IR to attend. Any Al-Anon or Alateen
member is welcome to come to the monthly meetings.
We try to keep meetings short and interesting. You will
leave each meeting knowing that you have helped Al-Anon’s primary
purpose, to help families and friends of alcoholics.
What constitutes a quorum at Intergroup meetings?
To carry out important business at Intergroup meetings, our bylaws
require that 5% of the groups we serve be represented. Currently this
means there must be at least 7 voting members. At the February meeting
there were only 6 voting members and therefore we were unable to
elect a Treasurer who is willing to serve. This should underscore the
importance of groups being represented.
