Click on any of the committees below to see how you can get involved. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and to "CARRY THE MESSAGE TO THE ALCOHOLIC WHO STILL SUFFERS". Giving back is a wonderful way to take your sobriety to the next level.
"Our Twelfth Step-carrying the message-is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. 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.
Hence, an A.A. Service is anything whatever that helps us to reach a fellow sufferer-ranging all the way from the Twelfth Step itself to a ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee, and to A.A.'s General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services is our Third Legacy of Service.
Services include meeting places, hospital cooperation, and intergroup offices; they mean pamphlets, books and good publicity of every description. They call for committees, delegates, trustees, and conferences. And, not to be forgotten, they need voluntary money contributions from the fellowship."
