Coronavirus and AA meetings

Suggestions for online meetings:
There is a list of online meetings in London which can be found by clicking here: Or just go to: https://alcoholicsanonymouslondon.com/ 

Zoom:
Many groups are using this application.  However, to preserve anonymity and keep out 'Zoombombers' (people who bomb meetings with offensive material) you need to ensure your settings are secure.  Disable the following settings:  Autosaving chats, file transfer, screen sharing, virtual background (while fun, online trolls have been coming to meetings with unpleasant images in their background pictures).  Turn on the Waiting Room so you can chat to people coming in and ask them to identify themselves if they just come on with iPhone; lock the meeting soon after it starts; disable chat if you aren't sure who is in the meeting (trolls can load material on your chat that lodges itself in your PC or phone).  Make sure that Recordings are turned off too.  The host can remove a participant by going to the Parcipants list. 

Your identity on Zoom meetings: If you join a Zoom meeting make sure your phone, laptop, tablet, etc doesn't show your full name - change it to just your first name.  It's helpful for the host if you give it a name rather than just 'iPhone'.

Sponsoring people (this is guidance for 'mutual aid groups' issued by Public Health England: Only in exceptional circumstances should an individual sponsor visit a sponsee to provide 1:1 support at home. They should both then follow the same precautions as are required of essential services i.e. stay at least 2m apart in an adequately ventilated area, both wash hands, don't go if either party is showing any symptoms of the virus, don't visit people who are self-isolating because they have COVID 19 symptoms, don't visit those who are being shielded because they are highly vulnerable or if the sponsor themselves is from a vulnerable group.

Tradition 7 (the AA 'Pot'):

You can make contributions to AA by online banking.  Send to:  Account name: The General Service Board, Sort Code: 40-47-31, Account number: 63930408. Or post a cheque to: AA, 10 Toft Green, York YO1 7NJ. Remember to add the account name, account number and sort code.  Gift Aid is a very efficient way of giving to AA as the amount you donate as the Government increases that amount to 25% for charities (which AA is) - making your donation go further. The form for this can be found here .
