How Al-Anon Works now available as an e-book here is what WSO has posted…
Al Anon’s basic book, How Al-Anon Works for Families & Friends of Alcoholics, is now available as an e-book, from the Apple iTunes store. It can be read on Apple computers and iPhones. The book is priced at $14.99.
This announcement is informational only, and is not an endorsement of Apple computer and its products. Due to a combination of business and technology issues, the electronic version of How Al-Anon Works is available only from the Apple iTunes store at this time. Other e-book vendors may offer an electronic version of How Al-Anon Works at a later date.
This announcement was made with the approval of Al-Anon’s Policy Committee, which recognized at its October 2013 meeting that there was no other way to announce the availability of this e-book without stating specifically where the e-book could be acquired. In June 2012, the Policy Committee reported to Conference members that using outside vendors to sell electronic CAL reflects the realities of today’s technology environment, and is not an endorsement of or affiliation with an outside entity.

$14.99 U.S., within the World Service Conference structure
Please note that because of royalties, we are unable to provide a complimentary copy of this e-book to Delegates or Literature Coordinators.
A note from: The Committee for the Recipes for Recovery 2014 NFA AFG Convention
I have created a flyer (available from the link below) advertising the Convention Twitter account; the flyer also provides instructions on how to create your own Twitter account and then how to follow the Convention.
I encourage everyone to print the flyer and bring it to their meetings/home group to spread the word about our Twitter feed and new website. I certainly encourage you to get your own Twitter account and follow us too!
This flyer will remain at this web address so if you are in email contact with any other members in fellowship and wish to share this with them, please do. I will also put a link to it on our Convention website.
Stepping Stones AFG St. David’s by the Sea 600 S. 4th St. Cocoa Beach, FL Mondays from 10:00am to 11:30am
We generally begin our meetings by reading the pages of the day from one or more of our 3 daily readers (“One Day At A Time”, “Courage To Change”, “Hope for Today”). We then move on to our Step Study using the book, “Paths to Recovery”. Currently, we are studying Step 4, using the book “Blueprint for Progress”.
If you are a group representative, please contact webmaster if you are interested in having your own “group page” on this website. Each GR can request their own login credentials. Posting news to your page is very much like editing a Microsoft Word document, it’s very easy. For other district positions, such as literature chair, etc, you may also request your own login, and “chair page”.
On your page you could post announcements specific to your group, like the date of your next “group conscious” or “business meetings”, items of discussion for the next business meeting, changes in times or locations, etc. You can post flyers, and upload documents to share. If your group is studying a particular CAL Book, you can announce it, so that visitors will know which books to bring. You could post a survey to ask for member input. Or a survey, asking for volunteers. Just be sure to be mindful of all our traditions, especially, Tradition 11, “we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, and TV,”. Be careful not to post last names, email addresses or phone numbers which would compromise anonymity. And also Tradition 6, we “ought never endorse, finance or lend our name to any outside enterprise”, keep your posts strictly about Al-Anon business.
You can also post announcements to the District Members’ News page, (which is NOT the same as your GROUP’s page) for things like anniversary parties, that you would like to announce to the entire district.
