Alateen Chairperson's Message

To all AA, Al-Anon and Alateen Guests:

On behalf of the 2019 Alateen Committee, welcome to the 44th Annual San Fernando Valley AA Convention!

I've been in program for just over 10 years, within it finding a family that I couldn't be more thankful for. I have also been on many Alateen committees, including RAD and SCAC, so when given the opportunity to serve as the Alateen Chair of a convention, I was very stoked and couldn't wait to get to work.

With that, I’d like to leave this off with a message of hope:  In our worlds of chaos, we will find lights of many kinds. Whether it be a moment we shared with a friend, or a concert we may go to, or in my case, a complicated person entertained by simple things.

But today, we all have a light right in front of us.  Some of us are looking for this light to further our program, others to share laughs with old and new friends, and still others to start a new journey within our rooms and family.

I thank you as the Alateen Chair for joining us for this convention, and hope you find your light this weekend.

Jacob P.
