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 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.
