Please read this important notice regarding the GALS conference.
Dear Gals Participants, August 21, 2022
I wanted to reach out and let you know that after much prayerful consideration we, as a committee, have decided not to move forward with the GALS conference. As you all know, we have had several years of being unable to hold an in person conference due to the concerns raised by Covid 19. This year it felt as though we had lost the momentum needed in planning GALS. We have struggled with how to continue to offer the quality conference that we have all come to expect and could not achieve the level of commitment needed to continue.
GALS has held an important part in my own sobriety and seeing so many of the same faces earnestly seeking ways to double our individual commitment by serving multiple roles on the planning committee, it was truly heartbreaking to come to our current decision. As our meetings became smaller, we collectively came to the conclusion that it might be time to give GALS a rest.
We have been grateful to serve you and our beloved conference. As alcoholics, being given the responsibility to help be a part of GALS has given all of us the opportunity to reach out to each other and create something greater than ourselves.
GALS will be missed.
Thank you for your understanding.
Chairperson of GALS 2022
