This is an Open Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, and is available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Non-alcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.


  1. Mute yourself when not speaking

  2. Zoom has a "Raise Hand" feature to support sharing. You can also send a private chat to one of the co-hosts to share.

  3. If you are concerned about anonymity, you can change your name by clicking on the ellipses in the window of your personal image/icon. Select "rename" to do this. [NOTE: Our Zoom meeting settings do not allow recordings]

  4. Join the meeting early or stay on after the meeting for Fellowship!

  5. A great way to be of service during this time is to help the less-tech savvy (especially older members). Have one-on-one chats with them through Zoom and show them how to do all of the items above. This will help them feel confident with the tools and ensure they are not isolated in their inability to physically get to a meeting.

Our format:
Each night, we have a reading followed by a topic, and will then open the meeting for discussion.
