What is AA?
The AA Preamble best describes what AA is and what it is not. You will likely hear the preamble at the beginning of many meetings.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Anonymity is a very important part of the AA way of life. It is just as important to respect the anonymity of all AA members, especially when online. Please take a moment to read some infomation on Anonymity Online. Provided by the General Service Office.

Area 53 Inventory Questions
Reflecting on the Area 53 Guidelines (Article IX)
Is the Area 53 Mini-Conference Committee achieving its “primary purpose?”
From the Area 53 Guidelines:
9) Mini Conference Committee
- Shall report regularly to the area assembly meeting.
- Shall plan and organize the area mini conference.
- Shall be chaired by the area 53 alternate delegate.
- Area 53 alternate treasurer shall serve as mini conference treasurer.
What improvements could be considered to make sure agenda items and conference activities have a broader appeal (attract more members to attend)? Improvements must be practical.
How well does the mini-conference committee communicate to the Area membership about why we have this conference and how it works? How can they better communicate that the mini-conference is more than one weekend in March?
How can we improve the time allotted at the mini-conference weekend for committees, reports, presentations, and “free time” to ensure thorough deliberations that effectively inform our Delegate?
