Newcomers Meetings are not just for newcomers! This is the 10th annual First Saturday Basic Recovery teleconference & f2f workshop. Welcome back, repeat "newcomers"!! 

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED to pair you with (or as) a guide/temporary sponsor, before the telemeeting starts: email

We strongly recommend you have a copy of the our textbook, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA "Big Book") 4th edition (or 3rd edition is ok, too); also have a pen or pencil and highlighter, plus paper, water, snacks, lunch ... and phone charger.  Optional but helpful: AA Back To Basics (yellow cover) book by Wally P

Most times your phone needs to be muted, as workshop is mostly presentations, except occasionally to answer 'yes' or 'no'. [If your phone doesn't have a mute function, use "(star) 6" to mute and the same to un-mute.]

Many times groups gather around a table and call in on a speaker phone. (Have a copy of the 4 session scripts ready, in case of bad phone audio).

We have a great need for persons to serve as telemeeting "guides" or "temporary sponsors", especially those who attended in the past, or who have worked (several of) the steps with a sponsor. (We provide instructions for guides). Bring your own sponsor or get a temporary sponsor if you can.

Note: the AA Big Book, 3rd edition, is available online (for example; But many have found it helpful to follow the readings in a new or used printed book, highlighting the readings.  Others follow in AA Back To Basics by Wally P.
