Due to social distancing and shelter-in-place guidelines, many local meetings have moved online. You can view virtual meetings scheduled for today, or view the full list of virtual meetings available throughout the week. You can also read about our response to Covid-19.
Due to the extended nature of the current pandemic, we are now holding all Intergroup meetings virtually for the foreseeable future. The virtual meetings will be held during the regularly scheduled Intergroup meeting times and dates. These meetings are for Intergroup Reps (IGRs) or alternates only. IGRs should have received an email with information about how to join the meeting virtually. If you are an IGR or alternate and did not receive the email, please contact us. Be sure to include your group name, group code and service position.
Welcome to the web pages of the Atlanta Central Office of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Central Office, by AA tradition, exists primarily as a service organization. It is the first point of contact with AA for many who believe they may have a drinking problem. It’s an AA member at our office who answers the phone when anyone in the eighteen-county area calls Alcoholics Anonymous.
What is AA?
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 AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination or 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 to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
