Call for stories to update “A.A. for the Older Alcoholic”

The 2019 General Service Conference recommended that “the pamphlet ‘A.A. for the Older Alcoholic – Never Too Late’ be updated with a revised introduction; current and inclusive stories; reference to online A.A.; and an updated ‘How Do I Find A.A.?’ section.”

The trustees’ Cooperation with the Professional Community/Treatment and Accessibilities Committee is seeking stories from a broad cross section of older A.A. members to make the pamphlet more representative of the Fellowship.

Typed manuscripts should be 500-800 words, double spaced, in 12-point font. Handwritten manuscripts should be approximately 5 to 6 pages. Please include your complete name, address and email/phone information; The anonymity of all authors will be observed, whether or not their story is selected for publication. Please email your sharing to: access@aa.org and put “A.A. for the Older Alcoholic” in the subject line of the message. Or, you may mail it to Access Assignment, General Service Office, Box 459, Grand Central Station, New York, NY 10163.

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2019.

SF H&I Weeknight Orientation at Central Office on October 24!

As you may know, H&I carries the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined primarily in hospitals, rehabs, half-way houses and corrections facilities / jails . Meetings are also taken to the local jails. The commitment is to bring one meeting each month to a facility with a partner.

Volunteers are required to attend an orientation and to have at least 6 months of continuous sobriety; 2 years sobriety for jail meetings.
