Our Group Conscience
There may be some here who are not familiar with our Tradition of personal anonymity at the public level: “Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio and films.”
Thus, we respectfully ask that A.A. speakers and A.A. members not be photographed, videotaped, or identified by full name on audiotapes or in any published or broadcast reports of our meetings,
The assurance of anonymity is essential in our efforts to help other problem drinkers who may wish to share our recovery program with us. And our Tradition of anonymity reminds us that A.A. principles come before personalities.
Our group does not subscribe to any website analytics or tracking of data for any purpose. We do not share member contact information and will distribute event lists privately.
Our group is not intentionally marketed online. This group’s effectiveness and word of mouth is the only representation of how other members find out about this meeting.
