The Difference Between Open and Closed A.A. Meetings

 

The purpose of all A.A. group meetings, as the Preamble states, is for A.A. members to “share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.” Toward this end, A.A. groups have both open and closed meetings.

 

Closed meetings are for A.A. members only, or for those who have a drinking problem and “have a desire to stop drinking.”

 

Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Nonalcoholics may attend open meetings as observers. 

 

At both types of meetings, the A.A. chairperson may request that participants confine their discussion to matters pertaining to recovery from alcoholism.

 

Whether open or closed, A.A. group meetings are conducted by A.A. members who determine the format of their meetings.
