What to Expect:
These are audio/video meetings. As with most face-to-face AA meetings, they follow a set format guided by a meeting chairperson. There’s a button that lets you turn off your video camera if you prefer not to be seen, and if you prefer just to listen, you are welcome to pass when called upon. You don’t have to give your name or any contact info to join us, and you can participate from pretty much any device — even a plain old telephone. All of our meetings are OPEN meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous.
It is not required to have a Big Book, but it is recommended. We may ask participants to read excerpts. If you would like to view an online version, go to the AA Website Big Book Online.
We ask that you show common courtesy during our video meetings. Please make sure to do the following:
- Please try not to interrupt others. This can be difficult in a web conferencing system but please allow others to finish sharing before requesting to speak.
- Refrain from the use of vulgarity of any kind.
- Refrain from causing distractions or holding up a meeting. If necessary, leave the meeting and come back when you are ready to participate.
- The Golden Rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated.
