RESPONSE TO COVID-19
During this unprecedented time, many of you have made the difficult choice to practice social distancing! We appreciate your sacrifices and with your help would like to provide a list of online meetings as well as speaker tape archives to help during this time! Remember, this too shall pass!
District 22 has been notified by NIA 20 leadership that the decision was made to CANCEL two upcoming area-sponsored events:
- The 2020 Spring Assembly Conference planned for March 20th – 22nd at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg.
- The Pre-General Service Conference Workshop planned for April 4th in Lombard, IL.
- Download Notification From NIA 20
Please help spread the word.
Please note since many facilities have temporarily closed, some meetings have temporarily shutdown or relocated. Some have started using online meeting apps or phone conference calls to conduct meetings.
We will try to keep the closures of meetings up to date and in the Meeting Guide App you may see the designation "TEMPORARY CLOSURE" for meetings we have been told are temporarily cancelled, but ultimately these temporary changes like all changes, relies on information from the meeting contacts, GSRs, Chairpersons and meeting attendees. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, so please do let us know if you know of changes in meeting status and share that information with your fellows.
A Word From GSO
You may view the response from the General Service Office of Alcoholics Anonymous regarding COVID-19, by visiting the link below.
The A.A. Preamble
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.
