Closed Meetings: Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon Family Groups, and Adult Children of Alcoholics meetings are generally
Closed meetings unless otherwise stated. Closed meetings are limited to members and prospective members only
and listed as "Closed" in the meeting schedules.
Open Meetings: Open meetings are for anyone who is interested in AA, Al-Anon or ACOA. If a meeting is "Open" it will be so designated on the published schedule. Open meetings can be attended by students, professionals, and other non-members interested in learning more about the recovery programs.
The designation of a meeting as "Open" does not change the meetings primary purpose of the group.
Each group has but one primary purpose - to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers
