How to create an online meeting Options for Meeting Online which includes anonymity settings. From GSO: By attending digital meetings, groups can focus on A.A.’s primary purpose: to carry its message of recovery to the alcoholic who still suffers. Many groups have alerted local A.A. offices or hotlines if they are temporarily not meeting in their regular space. Some groups have shared that they are utilizing digital platforms such as Zoom, Google Hangouts, or conducting conference calls.  

**Please remember the 7th Tradition and continue to support your home groups, your local InterService or Central Office, and GSO. Contributions may be down if we are no longer attending face-to-face meetings but they still have expenses and perform vital services for our Fellowship. Some people are keeping a jar and putting $$ in for every online meeting they attend.  Then will donate to their home group when this is over. To contribute to your San Antonio Central Service Office, see donation button on the right of the page.

AA's Public Information Policy

In 1956 the U.S./Canada General Service Conference of A.A. adopted unanimously the following statement of "A.A.'s Public Information Policy"

In all public relationships, A.A.'s sole objective is to help the still-suffering alcoholic. Always mindful of the importance of personal anonymity, we believe this can be done by making known to him, and to those who may be interested in his problem, our own experience as individuals and as a fellowship in learning to live without alcohol.

We believe that our experience should be made available freely to all who express sincere interest. We believe further that all our efforts in this field should always reflect our gratitude for the gift of sobriety and our awareness that many outside A.A. are equally concerned with the serious problem of alcoholism.

This statement reflects a long-standing A.A. tradition of not seeking publicity for promotional purposes , but of always being willing to cooperate with representatives of all media who seek information about the recovery program or about the structure of the Fellowship.

In the U.S./Canada, information and public relations matters affecting the Fellowship of A.A. as a whole are the concern of the Public Information Committee and the Committee on Cooperation with the Professional Community of the General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Reporters are welcome at A.A. open meetings, dinners, regional get-togethers, or similar gatherings of recovered alcoholics. The only restriction is a request not to disclose the name of any A.A. member. (For obvious reasons, photographs cannot be taken at A.A. meetings.)

In many areas of U.S./Canada, A.A. members have established committees on public information and cooperation with the professional community, to assist local media in obtaining accurate information about the Fellowship. Background material on A.A. may also be obtained upon request from these groups.
