AA Intergroup has a very useful site for helping with finding on-line meetings, attending them, and managing them. We are putting all information about AA online onto a new page (look at the top of this page).
During these times, how do we responsibly practice self-support, our Seventh Tradition? AA’s General Service Office (GSO) has published a letter and a video emphasizing how important supporting AA is when “passing the basket” isn’t always possible. Please have a look, and consider supporting your District, your Area, your Central Office, and our GSO. Thank you.
