This we owe to A.A.'s future: To place our common welfare first; To keep our fellowship united. For on A.A. unity depend our lives, And the lives of those to come
I am responsible ...
When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
I want the hand of A.A. always to be there.
And for that, I am responsible.

Our 36 Spiritual Principles
Our Statement of Purpose
This is the "Official" Alcoholics Anonymous Delegate Area 26 Website established for the purpose of assisting the AA groups of Area 26 in carrying the AA message, primarily by publishing Area 26 news of interest, as well as the meeting schedules of the AA groups in Area 26. It is our goal to help the still-suffering alcoholic establish direct, face to face, contact with Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Area 26 Website will be diligent about protecting the anonymity of all AA members. No last names of AA members will be used on this website, including email addresses with last names.
A Website is a public communications vehicle not unlike "Press, Radio, TV, and Films". Carrying our AA message on a Web site is within our traditions as long as last names or facial pictures are not posted.
Personal email between members and/or non-members is no different than using Postal Mail or the telephone. Disclosing AA membership in this way does not compromise our tradition of maintaining anonymity at the public level.
