General information about the role and responsibilities of an Area Delegate is outlined below. A complete description of Area Delegates and the S-Anon Service Structure is presented in the S-Anon/S-Ateen Service Manual. The service literature piece, L-19, “Serving as an S-Anon Area Delegate” is currently under review.
Where We Are Now
The S-Anon “traditional” service structure is a work-in-progress. We are still breaking new ground as we move toward an S-Anon World Service Conference (WSC) that is fully representative of all our groups and members. We do have a structure set up, but many Areas are not yet “organized” to any extent and do not yet have Area Delegates. Most Area Delegates at this time have volunteered and serve with the agreement of all groups in their area, rather than been elected, to help make this service structure a reality.
Where We Are Headed
It is an exciting and challenging time to be an Area Delegate. If you would like to be put in touch with a currently serving Delegate, please email your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org, and your message will be forwarded by the World Service Office. Please remember that Area Delegates are volunteers; someone will contact you as soon as they are able to do so.
Register as an Area Delegate
It is recommended that all registered groups in the Area be given the opportunity to have a voice in the selection of the Area Delegate and Alternate. Please contact the WSO at [email protected] to receive a list of Area groups to begin the selection/election process. Once the Area elects or affirms a volunteer Area Delegate or Alternate, they may submit the Area Delegate Form to the WSO.
