We no longer print our own meeting lists in any kind of bulk, but you are free to print your own, using this downloadable model. And, of course, you can find the latest meeting information online here.

    Needless to say, we can use all the help we can get, whether regarding meeting notices, corrections or changes, anniversary and other secretary notes ... anything at all, including questions of all sorts. You can reach us at s.i.meetings@gmail.com.

    Recent meeting changes are noted and highlighted in the printed lists, and will also be announced below, as soon as we learn of them, under Recent Changes. Please advise us of any such additions, subtractions, corrections, suggestions ... and, of course, when your group needs lists.

    For those who can use them, our printable secretary notes can be downloaded here and printed by any who wish to do so.

    Sections in these pages marked with a  Note  contain extra information. Simply place your cursor for a moment on the  Note  ... (Works best with the free Opera browser.)

 Note on New Meetings

New groups and meetings are generally listed in the secretary notes (under 'Notes & Changes') as they open. After some years' experience, though, and as is the custom in most places, they will be added to the printed and online lists only after they've been in business for a while, to be sure that they are viable, well supported and likely to last.

Policies and Practices for Listing Meetings

 Note on New Meetings – New groups and meetings are generally listed in the secretary notes (under 'Notes & Changes') as they open. After some years' experience, though, and as is the custom in most places, they will be added to the printed and online lists only after they've been in business for a while, to be sure that they are viable, well supported and likely to last.

On Groups

Alcoholics Anonymous is founded on its autonomous groups. The meetings a group holds are just part of its “primary purpose” (per our 5th Tradition) of carrying its message of sobriety to those who still suffer from alcoholism. Ideally, planning how best to do all this carrying is the “business” of our “business meetings” – something important to keep in mind. For suggestions on how we might do so, The A. A. Group pamphlet is an excellent start.

    All listings in these notes are by group, rather than the more common designation by location. This in part may help avoid the impression that we are affiliated with the places we meet in, contrary to our 6th Tradition. More importantly, we hope it may encourage members to become an active part of these groups — to join a group in the first place – and encourage the groups in further A. A. activity. Along these lines, our A. A. expression ‘commitment’ might be transformed from a temporary job that we ‘take’, here or there, for a period of months, to a long-term commitment we ‘make’ ... to a specific, ongoing group of A. A. members.

    We apologize for the puzzlement this may cause at first. Those used to hearing “St. Roch's” (Monday nights) and “St. Mark's” (Saturday mornings), may wonder what on earth the “Mariners Harbor Group” and “Good Mornin’ Group” might be. We hope the confusion is only temporary, and that the reminder that these are actually meetings of groups will in some way help our work

    Unfortunately, it must also be noted that organizations which claim to be A. A. groups, while severely violating A. A.'s Traditions, will not be listed as A. A. groups in any way, including in these secretary notes. The Traditions are too important to the well-being, and even the survival, of A. A. to be trampled on or ignored, no matter how attractive such ‘meetings’ may appear.

    Finally, you may have noticed that the Sunnyside Group, which for many years met in Bulls Head, now finds itself in Port Richmond ... the Pleasant Plains Group in Oakwood ... The Point Group (Great Kills) in Richmondtown ... and (best of all) the Mariners Harbor Group in Port Richmond and the Port Richmond Group for years found itself in Mariners Harbor...in the very church where the Mariners Harbor Group began! (They have since returned to Port Richmond.)

    The practice of naming groups for the towns they started in was once very common, and often marks the oldest groups in an area. It's no wonder that they're not inclined to change their names for any reason. The only exception we know of here was the old West Brighton Group, which over the course of its many moves – perhaps the most of any group on the Island, if not the world – was transformed into the First Step Group of today.
