Austin AA Online
Online AA Meetings
for the Austin Community
LOCAL ONLINE AA MEETINGS
Serving The Greater Austin Area
Note: As of March 17, 2020, The City of Austin has placed a ban on all in person gatherings of larger than 10 people. The tentative date for this ban to be lifted is May 1st, 2020
Due to the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the impossibility of many of our members to attend meetings during this time, we have put together local AA meetings that can be accessed entirely through the internet by computer or with a mobile phone. This is done as a service to the community and not as a replacement for our local Intergroup, which is also listing online meetings here.
While online meetings are nothing new, these meetings are for the local Austin community, so that we can keep going to meetings with the same people we have been going to meetings with for years: its our home groups, our community, our hometown recovery.
If you do not find your Online Austin Area AA meeting listed here, please send complete info to email@example.com
Please include group meeting time and day, type (Open, Closed, Womens, etc), group name, zoom ID, zoom one-click URL (if you have it) and password (if applicable). You do not need to provide a contact email for the online meeting, but if you have one people have a place to ask questions about your online group.
A quick and dirty set of slides to help get you moving in the right direction, focused on Anonymity and process.
This was compiled from other sources including New York Intergroup, and local members.
You wont be able to implement all of these but its a good read.
IMPORTANT: Turn your phone to Landscape Mode to scroll the results. This is a bug with the new search functionality and we are working on it. ALL TIMES ARE CST/CDT GMT -5
Note all meetings are "Open" unless specifically marked Closed (Alcoholics Only). Mens or Womens are for Men only or Women only and are also Open unless specifically marked Closed (Alcoholics Only)
