Resumption of In-Person Meetings within the Central California Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous

June 23, 2020

The Central Office of the Central California Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous has been dedicated to providing the most updated and accurate information in regards to meeting status whether they have been Virtual or Physical listings throughout the Pandemic. We are committed to continue to provide the most current information to our Fellowship. If you have recently reopened, please visit our website at to submit your group’s meeting information to us. Nothing more is needed, we do not require an Appendix A. If you are continuing to have a Virtual meeting, we will maintain this data on our website as well.

The General Service structure of Alcoholics Anonymous places the Groups as the highest level of service, and as such the Intergroup of CCFAA cannot direct what a Group can or cannot do. The role of CCFAA is to provide additional services to the groups and meetings allowing each to focus on their primary purpose of ‘Carrying the message to the alcoholic who still suffers’.

Below you will find links to your county’s Public Health directives. 

As members of Alcoholics Anonymous we have a vested interest in protecting the fellowship from the possibilities of litigation, or public controversies. As members, though our personal positions regarding the directives and how it has affected our fellowship may differ, it is important to know where the fellowship’s liabilities end and where individuals may put themselves at legal risk.

In that spirit, the CCFAA Central Office is sharing this information as a guide for groups to follow to resume in-person meetings.
