*TO ALL GSR'S:  As the COVID-19 restrictions get relaxed and groups become allowed and decide to start meeting physically again, please contact the Webmaster at webmaster@ncd12aa.org. I will update the meeting list and individual info pages.*

Some local groups have started online meetings during this time. They are noted in the meeting list. If your group starts an online meeting please contact the webmaster@ncd12aa.org to make sure it gets listed. Other online meetings may be found at aa-intergroup.org.

Message to the fellowship from The Grapevine:


Grapevine and La Viña are here to help

Due to the current changing health situation, many AA meetings across the U.S. and Canada are finding it safer to close. To help members during this time, we are giving everyone free access to all of our 2020 Grapevine and La Viña issues. (The audio to Grapevine’s stories will be available as well, so people can listen to the stories if they like.) Please share with your fellows. We have also included a link to our Youtube channel with some original audio stories as well as other important information.
