Preamble of A.A. 

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.

There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

  Can Anyone go to an A.A. Meeting? What are Open & Closed Meetings?

  The purpose of all A.A. group meetings is for A.A. members to share their experience,

  strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

  A.A. groups hold both open and closed meetings.

  Closed meetings are for those who have a desire to stop drinking. 

  Open meetings are for anyone interested in the A.A. program of recovery from alcoholism. 

  At meetings, the A.A. chairperson  will ask that participants confine their discussion to recovery from alcoholism.

  Whether open or closed, A.A. meetings are led by A.A. members.

Step, Tradition & Concept of the Month: December

Step 12

Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Tradition 12 (Short Form)

Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

Concept 12 (Short Form)

The Conference shall observe the spirit of A.A. tradition, taking care that it never becomes the seat of perilous wealth or power; that sufficient operating funds and reserve be its prudent financial principle; that it place none of its members in a position of unqualified authority over others; that it reach all important decisions by discussion, vote, and whenever possible, substantial unanimity; that its actions never be personally punitive nor an incitement to public controversy; that it never perform acts of government; that, like the Society it serves, it will always remain democratic in thought and action.
