SATOP speakers needed once a month to speak at the American Inn in North Kansas City, MO on Saturday nights from 7:30pm-8:30pm
Please come share your experience, strength and hope FOR 1 HOUR at Substance Abuse Traffic Offender Program, Weekend Intervention Program, hospital, treatment facility or prison.
Bring another AA member or your sponsee to help you speak or take a meeting somewhere. There are several places and different times to choose from. It’s a very laid back atmosphere, between 10-30 people listen as I share. It’s always fun to let them ask me questions at the end.
If you have a sponsor and 1 month sober contact Samuel at 816.853.7464 or Jen P 816.726.9954 for more information.
Public Information service is to carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. Working together, members of local Public Information committees convey A.A. information to the general public through activities such as giving A.A. information talks at schools and civic organization meetings, providing A.A. literature to schools and offices, and insuring local media have accurate information and providing them with A.A. public service announcements.
See Teri H. for more information.
Alternate Central Office Delegate
2 year term – 1 year sobriety required
Duties are to assist Central Office Delegate and attend meetings with or in place of when he/she is unavailable.
(Central Office Delegate duties are to attend delegate meetings in metro area and report to group the information gathered and/or report information to delegate meeting.)
We need A.A. members on the “outside” to correspond with A.A. members in correctional facilities across the U.S. and Canada.
Having prison experience is not a prerequisite — sobriety in A.A. is. Inmates are more interested in learning how we got and stayed sober through A.A.’s Twelve Steps, rather than hearing about time we may have spent in prison. If you would like to share your experience, strength and hope with A.A.s who are confined, please mail the tear-off form to G.S.O.’s Corrections Desk, or email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. (You can also access the form on the Corrections Committee page on our website at aa.org.) The name of an inmate, selected at random from a geographic region different from your own, will be sent to you from the General Service Office and you will make the initial contact through the mail. Those who have participated in this service have found sharing with inmates a very gratifying form of Twelfth Step work. We are happy to know there are A.A. members like you willing to help make it possible for the A.A. message to be carried to those on the “inside.”
Ask Cliff P. or Jen P. if you have any questions

A means for persons coming out of Correction or Treatment Facilities to get to their first meeting.

Volunteers at group levels agree to be a contact for the BTGcommittee in your district.

It is suggested that the contact take the newcomer to a variety of A.A. meetings; introduce him or her to other A.A.’s; insure that he or she has phone numbers of several A.A. members and share the experince of sponsorship and a home group. See your GSR or Group BTG representative, to get your contact information to the BTG coordinator so you can be added to the Coordinators List
