Accessibility Committee

Formerly known as the “Special Needs” committee, “Accessibility” is the new title of many service committees handling the following needs:

The purpose of the accessibility committee is to help make AA accessible to every member who desires it by
  1. Raising awareness within the AA community of the challenges faced by those with special needs such as mobility, vision, hearing etc. when accessing meetings and
  2. building capacity within the AA community to offer meetings, special functions, and service opportunities to members with special needs.

Our goal is to include all alcoholics in the experience of belonging to a group and partaking in the full range of benefits of membership in AA.

The accessibility committee does not arrange transportation to meetings or bring meetings to those who cannot attend.

In 2018 the committee would like to accomplish the completion of the surveys below and the development of a list of “best practices” in use in our area.

Please fill out a survey from the choices below:
