Accessibilities Committee Mission: “Respect for the dignity of others is the foundation for all our efforts to carry the message to alcoholics with diverse need, with emphasis on identification rather than on how we are different.” – The A.A. Guidelines on Accessibility for All Alcoholics
Accessibilities Committee Guidelines:
Become familiar with workbook and other materials pertaining to this committee. When possible, make effort to inform members on the multiple aspects of types of accessibility needs in order to raise awareness in helping to carry the message to as many members and suffering alcoholics as possible. Also when possible, gather information from groups about how they address any accessibility needs within their community.
