District 0500 Suggestions for Reopening of AA Meetings

There are a few steps to keep in mind.  These are only suggestions and we hope you will consider them and be responsible  members of AA.  We want everyone in our district to feel safe and healthy. Our district is 0500 it goes from Hornell NY to Towanda PA. Our district will start opening up under phase one: New York is May 15th & Pennsylvania is May 8th.  With that being said a few things to consider before your meeting opens.

1) Take a look at your County and CDC guidelines for each phase of reopening 2) Call your meeting place and see what their rules are and if they are opening. 3) Call a home group conscience and share information and make an informative decision.  Anyone in the group can call a group conscious. If a group needs help with a phone conference or zoom meeting get a hold of District support (607)249-4276. 4) Things to keep in mind: sanitizer, cleaning tables & chairs. Recommended no snacks, Hand holding, limiting members to one meeting room split into 2 rooms if over NYS Guidlelines.  The less people touch and retouch things the better. Wear a mask if needed.  Everyone should feel comfortable.  If your sick or your health is compromised please stay home there will still be phone or zoom meetings.  If your group decides to meet please get a hold of District support with your information and let them know.  Let’s be responsible people in Alcoholics Anonymous.  


Please Call the District Support line and let us know if your meeting is open we will post on the website (607)249-4276
