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.

Reports of Disruptions During Online Meetings

We have recently had several reports of meetings being disrupted by individuals and 'gangs' that enter meetings and proceed to take it over. There are many settings you can use to stop this behavior and protect your meeting. Both the NY Intergroup and the SF/Marin Intergroup have excellent articles on how to set up your site and protect your meeting.
