Save the Date: Founders’ Day

June 10-12 promises to be action packed, whether you’re in San Francisco, Marin or Akron, Ohio, birthplace of A.A.

Searching and Fearless

The Step by Step Workshop series continues Saturday with a look at what it means to conduct a fearless moral inventory. Join speaker Jillian E. on April 9 @ 2pm at Hillside Church of Marin in San Rafael or online.



Call for Stories: Big Book Fifth Edition

Recognizing that all stories provide value, the Literature Committee is searching for recovery stories from a broad cross-section of our local communities for the Fifth Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous

As Bill W. wrote on page 29 of the Fourth Edition: “Our hope is that many alcoholic men and women, desperately in need, will see these pages, and we believe that it is only by fully disclosing ourselves and our problems that they will be persuaded to say, ‘Yes, I am one of them too; I must have this thing.’” 

It’s the hope that new stories from our membership will help future alcoholics to identify and find recovery. What’s your recovery story? Consider contributing your experience, strength and hope to the Fifth Edition. 

Deadline: Oct. 31, 2022. Questions? Write to [email protected] or be on the lookout for more information on the website.
