Only meetings registered with the Southern California World Service Area and the Al-Anon World Service Office can be listed in the Intergroup’s printed and online directories of Orange County and Greater Long Beach Area meetings.
Groups are registered by the Southern California World Service Area and the World Service Office with the understanding that groups will abide by Al-Anon Traditions. See page 31, “Al-Anon/Alateen Service Manual, 2014-2017,” for information on meetings not eligible for registration, including those with outside affiliations, joint meetings of Al-Anon and AA members, AA-members-only meetings, and meetings that use outside therapies, such as guided meditation.
The Orange County Intergroup staff will assist new groups in registering with the SCWS and WSO, or new groups can register at the Southern California World Service Area Web site, www.scws-al-anon.org, and then call the Al-Anon Information Service of Orange County (Intergroup), 714/748-1113, to arrange a directory listing.
Once registration is completed and a WSO number has been obtained, meetings can be listed in the OC Intergroup on-line directory. New meetings are listed in the printed directory after they have been established for six months.
