It’s been a busy AND wonderful first year as your Area Delegate. My charge is to get information to the Area fellowship, so this new page is for you! I will keep you informed about what’s happening at WSO (World Service Office) and am available for any questions at Delegate@alanonma.org.

I am honored to serve you and this wonderful fellowship. Our WSC theme for 2022 is: Enhancing Our Recovery Through Abundance, Unity and Understanding. This page will hopefully support this theme!

– Jane P.
