Attention Online Groups!
What Is A.A.?
Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have found a solution to their drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements, no dues or fees, nothing to sign, and AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem.
Online A.A. Meetings
There are currently over 400 online meetings available provided by groups in the Portland area. To find online meetings click on "Online Meetings" in the top menu bar. Use the Day, Time, and Type filters to narrow the list; "Online" is now included as a meeting Type. The smartphone Meeting Guide app currently shows suspended meetings crossed and online meetings with meeting links.
If you want to visit A.A. meetings originating in other areas including English meetings in foreign countries, check out the A.A. Online Intergroup.

Dealing with Online Meeting Issues
Looking for a Meeting? Got a Smart Phone?
There’s an app for that!
The easiest way to find a meeting near you, Meeting Guide was created by A.A. members, is supported by A.A. World Services, and it’s available free from the Apple and Google stores.
The Meeting Guide app icon and circle-chair symbol are copyright A.A. World Services, Inc.
The Preamble was introduced in the June 1947 issue of the AA Grapevine magazine and borrows much of its phrasing from the Foreword to the original edition of the "Big Book", Alcoholics Anonymous.
AA’s Twelve Steps are a group of principles, spiritual in their nature, which, if practiced as a way of life, can expel the obsession to drink and enable the sufferer to become happily and usefully whole.
AA’s Twelve Traditions apply to the life of the Fellowship itself. They outline the means by which AA maintains its unity and relates itself to the world about it, the way it lives and grows.
