A large number of video conference meetings (and some phone-based meetings) have sprung up in the Colorado Area over the last 10 days. These all occur on the same day and at the same time as the face-to-face meetings they replace. The list below is updated frequently. The downloaded PDF has clickable links!

Al-Anon groups newly meeting by phone- or video-conferencing will make every effort to protect your identity and your anonymity, in addition to providing a welcoming and supportive environment. Guidelines for helping assure anonymity have been distributed to Al-Anon groups now meeting “electronically” throughout the Colorado Area. However, it is more difficult to do this when using commercial software (such as Zoom) intended for business use, where anonymity is seldom important.
Obviously electronic meetings are not tied to any particular location the way traditional meetings are. Thus, provided the time slot of the meeting meets your needs and schedule, it may be more convenient than a meeting geographically nearby. For the same reason, we suggest that newcomers consider online meetings sponsored by the Al-Anon World Service Organization, which have long experience in assuring the anonymity of participants. You are very welcome to participate in any meeting, of course.
