There are 2 new Service committees that have opened up in our district:


The Accessibilities coordinator and committee helps groups assess and find ways to accommodate members with accessibility challenges. Most meetings are limited by the accommodations of the facilities they meet in. However, we should always do our best to help the still suffering alcoholic. This committee can help find solutions to issues that may come up. To learn more or to volunteer for this committee please contact access@ncd12aa.org.


District 12 puts on at least 2 major events each year: Unity Day in June and the New Year's Ever Alcathon. This committee helps to plan and coordinate these events. If you would like to volunteer for this committee please contact the Events Coordinator at events@ncd12aa.org.

The AA Grapevine is the international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous. Written, edited, illustrated, and read by AA members and others interested in the AA program of recovery from alcoholism, the Grapevine is a lifeline linking one alcoholic to another.

Often referred to as our "meeting in print," the AA Grapevine communicates the experience, strength, and hope of its contributors and reflects a broad geographic spectrum of current AA experience with recovery, unity, and service. Founded in 1944, the Grapevine does not receive group contributions, but is supported entirely through magazine subscription sales and additional income derived from the sale of Grapevine items.

The awareness that every AA member has an individual way of working the program permeates the pages of the Grapevine, and throughout its history the magazine has been a forum for the varied and often divergent opinions of AAs around the world. As such, articles are not intended to be statements of AA policy, nor does publication of any article imply endorsement by either AA or the Grapevine.

As Bill W. expressed it in 1946, "The Grapevine will be the voice of the Alcoholics Anonymous movement. Its editors and staff will be primarily accountable to the AA movement as a whole. . . . Within the bounds of friendliness and good taste, the Grapevine will enjoy perfect freedom of speech on all matters directly pertaining to Alcoholics Anonymous. . . . Like the Alcoholics Anonymous movement it is to mirror, there will be but one central purpose: The Grapevine will try to carry the AA message to alcoholics and practice the AA principles in all its affairs."

To learn more about how to submit your own story or artwork, read the guidelines for submissions here.

Grapevine is available in print, online, and as a mobile app! Visit the website here.

The Grapevine store also has books available which are collections of stories from the magazine on different topics. There are also calendars and other media items for sale. Visit the Grapevine Store here.

Cooperation with the Professional Community/Public Information (CPC/PI)

This service committee helps to educate the professional community and the public at large about Alcoholics Anonymous' purpose. We are an anonymous fellowship and not a secret society. It involves talking to or giving information to doctors, counselors, lawyers, law enforcement, and the general public; letting them know what A.A. does and does not do.

To get involved in this service work, please contact our CPC/PI Coordinator at cpcpi@ncd12aa.org.
