2 years continuous sobriety is recommended as well as a good understanding of the AA Programme, 12 Step work, the Traditions and Guidelines. Applications will need to be sponsored by their Intergroup or Region.

2 years continuous sobriety is recommended as well as a good understanding of the AA Programme, 12 Step work, the Traditions and Guidelines. Applications will need to be sponsored by their Intergroup or Region.
