General Meetings Information

Meeting Definition

The purpose of all A.A. meetings is to “share our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism”. A.A. meetings may be “Open” or “Closed”.

Open Meeting

Open meetings are accessible to all people interested in Alcoholics Anonymous program of recovery from alcoholism. Both alcoholics and non-alcoholics are welcome to attend. A.A. group meetings are conducted by A.A. members. Participants are expected to confine their discussion to matters pertaining to the recovery from alcoholism. At open meetings, non-A.A.s may be invited to share, depending upon the conscience of the group.

Closed Meeting

Closed meetings are for those who have a drinking problem and have a desire to stop drinking. A.A. members and anyone new to AA who wants to stop drinking are welcome to attend. If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you are welcome to attend this meeting. We ask that when discussing our problems, we confine ourselves to those problems as they relate to alcoholism.
