Suggestions on Meeting Re-Openings

Please click the heading of this section for a list of suggestions compiled by Baltimore Intergroup after discussions with their groups and Intergroup offices around the country. These are not rules, but suggestions of things to evaluate prior to decisions being made to re-open face to face meetings.

Your Intergroup Officers

Intergroup Office Re-Opens - Temporary Hours and Procedures

The Richmond Intergroup Office will re-open on a restricted basis so that groups and individuals may get the AA literature and supplies they need.
COVID-19 is still with us; therefore, days and hours will be limited at this time, and precautions will be in place for everyone’s safety.

Planning your visit to the Intergroup Office:
> Protective masks or face coverings will be required for all persons entering the office suite
> Visitors must call in advance to arrange a time to come to the office to avoid clusters of people at one time
> Literature and other supplies will be bagged or boxed in advance of your visit, so be prepared to order what you need when you call
> Cash, check or credit card payments are accepted

Week of October 19 through October 23

Tuesday, Oct 20 - 10am-3pm
Wednesday, Oct 1421 - 10am-3pm
Thursday, Oct 22 - 10am-3pm

A Note to All Local Groups...

Now that Virginia has entered Phase Three of reopening for business, please contact us if your group wants to reactivate a live meeting listing, if you are suspending an online meeting, or making any changes that affect your meeting listings. Also, if your group has used an online meeting and is reactivating a live meeting listing, specify whether the online meeting will remain in place; some groups are using both formats.
The best way to convey this information is by sending an email to office@aarichmond.org including a contact name & number.

We have been notified that members in several of our groups have tested positive for Covid-19 virus, and that all home group members and attendees have been notified of this.
Richmond Intergroup encourages any and all AA members to consider downloading the attached form for personal use for any meetings they choose to attend, as well as practice social distancing and wearing of masks for any meetings they attend indoors or outdoors. First name and last initial are suggested for anonymity. Each group may choose to use this form also as a method of notifying meeting attendees if necessary. Click this section’s heading to view & print the form.
We have no authority to direct any A.A. member to do anything, but strongly encourage everyone to take necessary precautions to keep all A.A. members safe until the pandemic is under control or a vaccine has become available.
