AA Intergroup has a very useful site for helping with finding on-line meetings, attending them, and managing them. We are putting all information about AA online onto a new page (look at the top of this page).
Due to the recent upsurge in COVID-19 cases and deaths in New Mexico and particularly in Bernalillo county, the Desert Club has decided to close its doors for meetings, effective Wednesday July 15th, 2020. The hall will remain closed until new cases and deaths level out statewide. We understand that this closure will create hardships for some and for that we apologize. By closing, the Board is attempting to protect our members and the community as a whole. Please bear with us and we will reopen as soon as possible.
During these times, how do we responsibly practice self-support, our Seventh Tradition? AA’s General Service Office (GSO) has published a letter and a video emphasizing how important supporting AA is when “passing the basket” isn’t always possible. Please have a look, and consider supporting your District, your Area, your Central Office, and our GSO. Thank you.
