There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes at an A.A. meeting. The people who make those meetings happen are not paid employees. They are A.A. members who volunteer to be of service to others.

There is a phrase commonly heard at AA meetings, “you have to give it away to keep it”. Acts of service not only help the people getting help to stay sober, but they also help the person doing the service stay sober too.

There are many rewards when doing service work. We re-learn things like gratitude, humility, trust, love and the sense of accomplishment that comes from giving back what has been so freely given to us.

We need you!!

SERVICE THROUGH ARCHIVES

Meetings are second Sunday monthly 11:30 am at Central Office
Whenever a society or civilization perishes there is always one condition present; they forgot where they came from.
—Carl Sandburg
Like any other A.A. service, the primary purpose of those involved in archival work is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous. Archives service work is more than mere custodial activity; it is the means by which we collect, preserve, and share the rich and mean- ingful heritage of our Fellowship. It is by the collection and sharing of these important historical elements that our collective gratitude for Alcoholics Anonymous is deepened.
A.A. members have a responsibility to gather and care for the Fellowship’s historical documents and memorabilia. Correspondence, records, minutes, reports, photographs, newspaper and magazine articles from the past and the present should be collected, pre- served, and made available for the guidance and research of A.A. members and others (researchers, historians, and scholars from vari- ous disciplines) — for now and for generations to come.
Many areas, districts, intergroup/central offices, and groups have elected to develop archives collections to preserve their own local history. These guidelines have been developed to assist with these efforts.

The Remotes Committee

The main task of this Remote Communities workgroup is to bring help and support to districts who have in
their midst communities who are different by their language and culture and location. We do this by utilizing the Tele-Health system, by 12 step “road trips” and personal emails, phone calls. We also co-ordinate with Bridging The Gap, other Area80 committees and all districts.
