Hello Trusted Servants:

     I wanted to send out a note stating what District 1 was going to do with respect to the coronavirus and the various meetings in our directory.  The bottom up structure of AA says that each and every group will need to make decisions for itself on whether their normal venue is appropriate such that meetings can take place in a safe way (i.e. social distancing and group size). 

See Bottom of this page for ZOOM Meetings
