Are there any general guidlines for chairing Closed Discussion meetings? I mean stuff about picking a topic, making sure people limit their time while sharing. Jan W. Memphis, TN

Reply: The only "general guideline" are; there are no guidelines,it's up to the group to decide how they want to do anything at the meeting.
I would suggest that you get a copy of the The AA Group Pamplet and you'll see lots of neat "guidelines" for just about anything a group or a meeting wants or needs to do.

Where is the AA group inventory?
Where can I find an outline of a group inventory.

Reply: Archie, thanks for asking about the group inventory. AA Grapevine made us take it out of our website, but if you google your questions, you'll find the links you need.

What is a sponser? why do I need one ?
How do I pick one.

Reply: A sponsor is someone who helps you get thru the 12 steps. He will also be there to
answer questions about the program as he had to go thru all the stuff you are getting
ready to go thru and help you.

You dont need one...it just makes it a LOT easier to get and stay sober. If you want to
do it the hardest way possible...dont get one. :)

You listen to guys at the meeting...some of them you'll think "I never want to be like that
guy!" and some you'll say...."Whatever he has, I want it...he's really got his shit together!"

Pick the guy with his shit together....ask him if he'll sponsor you. If he says NO, then you
picked the wrong guy, dont worry about it. If he says YES, ask him what to do next.

There is a pamplet at most meetings call SPONSORSHIP and you should pick one up.
It answers all of these questions and more...

I am sharing on a panel and was wondering how the word sponser came into play. It does not seem to be mentioned in first 164 pages, the term spiritual advisor How does that relate to the word sponser. Thank you --great site Dick G.

Reply: In the early days in Akron, to get into an Oxford Group meeting with the alocholic squad, you had to know someone who could take you there. They would take you through what we now know is steps one, two and three before the meeting began and then they knew you were serious about joining up.
This person who brought you to the meeting was kind of responsible for you, he would sponsor
you into the group. If you went into treatment, he would also vouch for your medical bills too!
See Dr Bob's bio and if you ever get to Akron, check out the early pamplets in the Intergroup
office and you'll find even more of these stories.

Hi, For several years now I've been asking NY, GSO, to print out the 12X12 on their site. Of course they won't! What's the chance that you folks might? "Shoemaker stick to thy last!" better to do one thing supremely well than many badly. That is the cental theme of this Tradition. Around it our Society gathers in unity. The very life of our Fellowship requires the preservation of this principle. We of Alcoholics Anonymous could not be all things to all men, nor should we try. Whens the last time you heard either one of the above at a AA meeting? Thanking you in advance for your reply! In Sobriety, Jon S., 9-3-76, POA


Reply: 1) It's against the law for us to publish the 12 and 12 without permission and we dont have it so we wont be putting it up in our web site any time soon.
2) The last time I heard these two lines was at a step study meeting.
