The Intergroup, through a Literature Distribution Center (LDC) and an Al-Anon Information Service (AIS), supports more than seventy meetings. This work is done completely by volunteers.
Below you will find some useful documents. These documents allow Intergroup, the LDC, and the AIS to operate smoothly.
Use the Al-Anon Registration/Group Records Change Form to register a new group or make changes to an existing group’s listing. Instructions for filling out the form are also available in pdf. You may send a copy of the form to Central Ohio Al-Anon Family Groups. Central Ohio AFG will, in turn, forward a copy to both the Ohio and World Services Al-Anon Family Groups offices. World Services issues registrations numbers for new groups.
Mail a copy of your Registration/Change Form to:
AFG of Central Ohio

Developed by a committee and approved by the Group Representatives (GRs) that attend Intergroup, the Suggested Intergroup Guidelines for Central Ohio Al-Anon Family Groups provides a foundation for making decisions. GRs, District Representatives (DR), Coordinators, and Officers should be familiar with the document. Additional resources include the Al-Anon Family Group Service Manual from the World Service Office and the Ohio Al-Anon Family Group Guidelines.
Alateen is for Al-Anon’s younger members who range from 9 to 19 years of age and whose lives have been affected by someone’s drinking.
Many people dislike meetings – especially ones that gets bogged down in personalities, bickering, or redundant discussions. Intergroup Etiquette provides a common foundation, approved by the GRs, that allows the Chair to move meetings along. It provides agreed-upon guidelines for introducing new business, introducing motions, having discussions, moving business along, and overruling the Chair.
If you would like to propose a motion or new business to intergroup use the Motions and New Business Form. See the Meeting Etiquette to see how and when to use the form.
If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a position fill out the Nomination Form and bring them to Intergroup, and we will get you started.
