UPDATED: Central Office Masks Up – Curbside Service Available. Occupancy limit of 3 in Front Area.

Following new guidance from the New Mexico Department of Health, we ask that anyone coming into Albuquerque Central Office wear a mask. A mask is needed regardless of your vaccination status. Furthermore, Central Office now has a occupancy limit of three people in the front (retail) area. With a coordinator or alternate coordinator, and a desk worker, this means only one or two visitors at a time. If you’d like to make a purchase but would rather not come inside, or others are already inside, call us and we’ll do curbside service. Each month, Intergroup and the Central Office Steering Committee will monitor Covid statistics and modify this policy as appropriate.

This is for the health of the special workers and the desk volunteers, as well as your own. Thank you very much!

New Steering Committee Members

As of the regularly-scheduled Intergroup meeting on December 12, the Central Office Steering Committee has some new members. The Steering Committee members are now:

Chair: Martin W. (newly elected to an open, one-year term)

Vice-Chair: Jeff P. (newly elected to a two-year term)

Treasurer: Tim T. (re-elected last year to a two-year term)

Secretary: Stephanie P. (newly elected to a two-year term)

Schedule Editor: Lindsay M. (re-elected to a two-year term)

Website Editor: Steve K. (re-elected to a two-year term)

Media Librarian: Amy C. (newly elected to a two-year term)

Community Outreach Chair: Lori F. (newly elected to a one-year term)

Because we have staggered elections, where half the offices are voted on during even years, and the other half are voted on during odd years, some of these positions are for a single year.

Central Office wishes to thank our outgoing members: Lara P., vice-chair, and Jerry K., secretary, for service well-rendered. Thank you, Lara and Jerry!

There are two vacant positions: The Accessibilities Chair and the Intergroup Liaison, both with one year remaining in their scheduled terms. Anyone in the Fellowship with at least two years continuous sobriety, and some familiarity with Central Office or Intergroup, is welcome to express interest in joining the Central Office Steering Committee. Email any member of Steering Committee if you are interested.

New Meeting Change Form

Central Office is taking a bold step into the 21st century with an all-electronic meeting change form! It can also be used to let us know about new meetings. There’s a link to this form at the top of the Meetings page. You can also get the form here. It is also linked at the top and bottom of the Meetings page, and the bottom of each meeting detail page.

Completing the form will send the information to our Schedule Editor, and the information will be updated in our Meetings page. This will also update the Meeting Guide app, automatically, as well as the schedule at the Area 46 website.

Remote Meetings Are More Than Zoom!

The Accessibilities and Remote Communities Committee of District 12 has put together a fine pamphlet about alternatives to face-to-face meetings. There are options other than Zoom! A.A. has been passing around our experience, strength, and hope in many ways outside of face-to-face meetings since way before the pandemic. This pamphlet is a great summary of some of these alternatives. You can download it here.

24/7 On-Line Meetings

If you need a meeting right now, and are willing to do it on-line, here are two sites that have A.A. meetings at all hours. You may find yourself in a meeting in a foreign country! Meetings at these sites use Zoom.

AA Intergroup has listings of on-line meetings meetings worldwide.

A site called “aahomegroup.org” will show you meetings happening right now.

If you need to get Zoom, go here. A quick video tutorial is here.
