Virtual / Online / Zoom Meetings
Many AA meetings are now taking place online. The following is a list of local meetings that have “moved” to Zoom and other video chat platforms for the time being.
Here are some suggested Zoom settings for anonymity, and a starting guide for hosting and managing new groups, courtesy of New York Intergroup.
In addition to the Sarasota-based groups below, others in major cities have also moved to zoom, and as a result there is an incredible array of meetings with more being added daily. Some starting points to discover these meetings are here: New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, and UK and Continental Europe.
