Accessibility: Making sure the hand of AA is always there
The following handouts provide guidance on making sure that AA meetings are available to all.
I am responsible, when anyone, anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.
Is Your Meeting is UP-TO-DATE
In the carrying our message to the struggling alcoholic, we need to be vigilant in making sure our meeting information is up to date on the web.
Please double check your meeting information on both the Virginia AA website and the Northern Virginia InterGroup site. If you have an online meeting only you can also register it at Online Intergroup, a directory of world-wide online meetings.
Contribute Your Story to the New Big Book
Telling our own stories helps us keep sober and helps those we share with. Perhaps your story could help others far into the future of AA. If you have thought about writing your story, then think about submitting it to the next edition of the the Big Book.
The New Normal
Transitioning Back to In-Person Meetings. Groups are autonomous, and make their decisions through the group conscience process. This article provides a framework of topics to be considered when transitioning back to in-person meetings.
AA Service Opportunities
Our Twelfth Step—carrying the message—is the basic service that the AA Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, AA is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die. From “A.A.’s Legacy of Service by Bill. W.,” The A.A. Service Manual by Bill W. 2018-2020 edition, p. S1.
Numerous opportunities to stay in the middle of A.A. and give back what has so freely been given are available. Get involved today!
In Service Insight: Archive Committee
How many times in a meeting have you heard: Isn’t it great they wrote that down!
Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy.

And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone—even alcohol.
AA Big Book, p. 84
We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.

That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear.

If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it--then you are ready to take certain steps.

Whatever our ideal turns out to be, we must be willing to grow towards it.

Patience, tolerance, understanding and love are the watchwords.
