for Zoom Meetings

Hi everyone and welcome to the Del Ray Club Zoom meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. My name is __________, and I am an alcoholic.
Meetings at the Del Ray Club virtual location are open to anyone with a desire to stop drinking. We are grateful you are here, especially newcomers. We are committed to providing a safe environment for meetings to take place. If you experience any behavior that makes you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, please reach out to a member of the House Committee, your sponsor or another group member and we will address the situation.

A quick word about Zoom etiquette and tips:

I’ve asked ___________ to read the AA Preamble: (Or read it yourself)

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Are there any newcomers with us, or anyone’s first time joining us at the online Del Ray Club? Do we have anyone present available to sponsor newcomers?

Welcome everyone.

Now, we will have a brief lead from ____________ on the [________________.]

Meeting back open.


We reserve the last 5 minutes for newcomers or those with a burning desire who didn’t get a chance to share. Does have anyone have a burning desire? END

That’s all the time we have. Thanks to everyone for a great meeting!

Remember: what you see here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here.

I’ve asked _______________ to lead us out with the Serenity Prayer and the Lord's Prayer.
