Due to Covid-19, some groups in District 8 are now hosting meetings online
Please be advised each group is self-maintained.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ !
There are some among you who are not familiar with our tradition of personal anonymity at the public level:
Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press radio and films. Thus, we respectfully ask that no A.A. member be identified outside of these online meeting rooms by full name and that no part of any image, recording, or other representation be reproduced, published, or broadcast outside of these meeting rooms.
The assurance of anonymity is essential in our effort to help other problem drinkers who wish to share our recovery program with us.
Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions – ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
Please be aware, some of these may be recorded and may not provide complete anonymity. District 8 and Alcoholics Anonymous does not endorse nor oppose the use of Zoom meetings.
Those concerned with anonymity, enter name or number and last initial, or omit. Also, you may elect not to use camera in Zoom

If you know of a meeting in District 8 that is not listed
Closed Meetings: All A.A. meetings are closed unless otherwise indicated. Attendance at a closed meeting is limited to only those with a desire to stop drinking. **If an A.A. has a friend or family member that is curious about how 12 step programs like A.A. work we encourage attendance at Al-Anon or Alateen meetings. These programs have been designed especially for family and friends of the alcoholic.
Open Meetings: Open A.A. meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about A.A. Open meetings can be attended by members of any recovery group as well as family members, friends, students, professionals, and other non-members. These meetings generally consist of a short lead or a speaker. There are several open meetings within District 8 and they have been designated as such on the meeting list.
Handicap/Disability Accessibility: All known handicap/disability accessible meeting locations are designated with a "H" after the meeting name. This does not mean that other meeting locations without this symbol cannot accommodate handicapped/disabled individuals. If you see a mistake in our guide regarding handicap/disability accessibility please contact our webmaster so we can keep our meeting list up to date.
Smoking: Since most meeting locations such as churches, hospitals and other public facilities are non-smoking, please view all meetings as such, unless your own personal attendance finds otherwise. Some locations are equipped with a designated smoking area, however other locations like hospitals have strict "no smoking" policies. Please respect the policies of each location, by not smoking directly in front of building entrances, by utilizing the designated smoking area(s) and disposing of cigarette waste properly.
