Online Al-Anon Outreach Committee
Online Al-Anon Newsletters
Periodically a Newsletter is prepared to bring participants in OL Al-Anon meetings in cyberspace up to date about the activities of the OAL-IS and what is emerging from the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship as a whole. It is sent to the Member Contacts of OLA-IS and others for distribution as they wish.

Online Al-Anon History
Members of the Online Al-Anon Outreach Committee are compiling a history of the development of Al-Anon online. If you have additions or changes you would like to contribute, email OLA-IS.

Guidelines for Online Al-Anon Meetings
At the Spring 1998 World Service Conference, delegates were given this set of guidelines, approved by the WSO board, for "electronic meetings." The board also developed a request form to be used to obtain written permission to use Conference Approved Literature in online meetings. On Oct. 27, 1998 the Board of Directors amended these guidelines to allow one paragraph quotes from the daily readers, One Day At A Time, Courage to Change, Alateen: A Day At A Time.

Materials Available for Online Reproduction
Also at the Spring 1998 World Service Conference, this updated list of Al-Anon Materials which can be published online was distributed to delegates.
