New Group Form

U.S. and Canada

"Our membership ought to include all who suffer from alcoholism. Hence we may refuse none who wish to recover. Nor ought A.A. Membership ever depend upon money or conformity. Any two or three alcoholics gathered together for sobriety may call themselves an A.A group, provided that, as a group they have no other affiliation."
- Tradition Three

"Each Alcoholics Anonymous group ought to be a spiritual entity having but one primary purpose - that of carrying its message to the alcoholics who still suffers."
- Tradition Five

"Unless there is approximate conformity to A.A.'s Twelve Traditions, the group... can deteriorate and die."
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions

A.A.'s Traditions suggest that a group not be named after a facility or member (living or deceased), and that the name of a group not imply affiliation with any sect, religion, organization or institution.

Upon completion of the form below, we will need time for the registrar and GSO to review and approval. Once it has been approved by the GSO, then the meeting will be posted.
