About: Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.  There are no due or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.  A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.  Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Why do I have to pay?

While there are no dues or fees for membership in AA, there are many conferences around the world and the most common misconception of these gatherings are that they are AA meetings, and “there are no dues and fees for AA membership.” However, Conventions and Conferences are special events, not regular AA meetings.

This Convention requires months of planning, preparation and money to present.  Since all of the events are held at a Convention Center, there is a charge to the Committee for the use of these facilities. Other expenses include travel and lodging for speakers, printing costs, postage and supplies. The event is paid for through the cost of the registration. No baskets are passed.

As responsible AA members “WE PAY OUR OWN WAY.”
