Take the A.A. Membership Survey

All A.A. members are asked to participate in an anonymous A.A. membership survey. Click here to participate and be sure to share this link with your fellow A.A.s. The results from the survey will give A.A. a clearer snapshot of our membership; provide information about A.A. to the professional community, and help inform the public about what A.A. does and does not do. Although a smaller sample survey was conducted in 2022, the results from this survey will be compared to those results. The survey ends on November 26, so don’t delay!
