New Jersey Area 36 Al-Anon Family Groups is comprised of 27 districts with close to 300 meetings. Every group in our Area has a voice and a vote in Area business through its Group Representative (GR). Our Area is represented at the annual World Service Conference by our Area Delegate, elected every three years by the GRs. Other Area officers include an Alternate Delegate, Chairperson, Secretary, and Treasurer. Area Coordinators serve as a link between the WSO departments and local trusted servants. Area Coordinators in Area 36 include: Alateen, Archives, Public Outreach, Literature, Area Newsletter, Website Coordinator, and Area Group Records. All Area officers and coordinators are important links in the chain of service, and a resource to the groups and districts in their Area.
Our Area Assembly is the business meeting where the groups send their representatives to express a voice and vote on behalf of the group. Three times a year, during Assembly, our Delegate reports the activities of the World Service Conference.
