The First International Conference-by-Mail of the World Hello - 1961
The First International
Conference-by-Mail of the
International Correspondence Group
Included in this Conference-by-Mail is a message dedicated to World Hello from Bill W. The content of this piece is filled with “loner members” sharing their written experience. Also included is a section on Al-Anon members sharing experience.
It is believed that this was the first and only “World Hello Conference-by-Mail” that AA has ever done. Al-Anon may have followed with something similar later on. This is an extremely wonderful and rare piece of AA history.
Here is an excerpt from Lys S., G.S.O.(God-Sponsor):
”It’s great to be a part of World Hello Conference-by-Mail. Being together in fellowship, even though far apart in body, makes one more than ever aware that AA is a society of the spirit. And we have a special communication of the heart which nourishes us all as we give and receive. So - congratulations on your first- I already look forward to your second... a day at a time, of course!”
