The unprecedented situation caused by the severe restrictions on gatherings introduced by the Victorian Government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the way that AA meetings function. You should assume that all physical AA meetings in Victoria are no longer operating unless you know to the contrary. There are also a few meetings operating in the open air.
While this situation continues members can support each other and newcomers by using the phone and the various available messaging applications that can be used on phones, tablets, laptops and PCs.
Many groups have created online meetings using a software program called ‘Zoom’. These allow members to share in a group setting and see and hear each other. Note that you can participate without showing your face if you so wish.
