Central Office “exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.” In order to accomplish this, your support is vital. You may see our financial status in the table below. Your Central Office is financed solely by:
• Direct financial contributions from A.A. groups
• Tax deductible contributions from individual members up to $3000 yearly. Your accountant or tax professional can advise.
• Proceeds from sales of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services and Grapevine literature and other related A.A. material.
• Special events by and for A.A. members, keeping in mind our Seventh Tradition.
• Make a monetary contribution via check or money order, payable to Central Office of Albuquerque. Mail or drop off in person at 1921 Alvarado Drive, NE Albuquerque, NM 87110.
• “Faithful Fiver” or “Trusted Tenner”, who and contribute either $5 or $10 monthly. Set up Auto Pay or Bill Pay with your bank to automatically send us a monthly contribution in any amount you choose. What could be easier? Use the address in the paragraph immediately above.

The following table shows the Profit and Loss statement for the first five months of 2021. We are, happily, IN THE BLACK (by $269.66) for the first half of 2021.
In spite of the pandemic, we had a net loss of only $4,029.62 for the most recent calendar year (2020), a loss of about 25%. The loss in 2020 is primarily attributed to the inability of Central Office to make sales of A.A. literature during the pandemic. The generosity of the Fellowship in the Districts served by Central Office (both groups and individuals) during the pandemic really sustained us! We require the generosity of our members to continue operating. Please consider donating, or purchasing your AA literature and sobriety chips through Central Office. Thank you.
Here is a link to a PDF version of the Profit and Loss report for June 2021.
Central Office cannot be fully effective without volunteers. We need Desk Workers, who work a regular shift, answer phone calls, and sell AA merchandise. This is a great opportunity to help the alcoholic in need. Sharing your experience, strength, and hope with an desperate alcoholic is truly one of the best ways to carry the message. Call Central Office at (505) 266-1900 to find which shifts are available.
To apply to become a Desk Worker, please drop by the office and ask for the application. Applications must be made in-person. You will receive the required training from the Coordinator, Alternate Coordinator, or an experienced volunteer.
The Steering Committee is a committee that monitors and supports the overall operations of the Central Office. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings of Intergroup, which consists of representatives of groups listed in our Meeting Schedule.
