The World Service Conference Committee adapted the Al-Anon Charter for S-Anon use. The Charter is the basic agreement between the World Service Conference, the Board of Trustees, and the World Service Office. The S-Anon Charter was presented to, and approved by, three-quarters of the WSC members in attendance on January 9, 2004. The Charter can be amended by the WSC by a three-quarters vote of members in attendance. The full text of the S-Anon World Service Conference Charter appears in Appendix G.

The Conference Charter is tied to the Twelve Concepts of S-Anon as indicated below:

Concept Twelve. The spiritual foundation for S-Anon’s World Services is contained in the General Warranties of the Conference, Article XII of the [S-Anon World Service Conference] Charter.
