PHYSICAL MEETINGS

 
Check AA's interpretation of the latest Government guidelines HERE.

Physical meeting status will be notified on this page of the website. Online meetings have their own page.

For updating existing meeting details and register new groups, please use the Pink Form and also update Andrew N, Southdown ECLO at ecomm.southdown@aamail.org so that the regional website can be updated.

Meeting closures will be highlighted in RED.

Meetings re-opening will be highlighted in GREEN.

GSO has produced some 'Questions' to Consider' when starting up meetings and they can be found HERE

Check meeting details carefully as timings, venues and access may have changed from what they used to be. Where stated, the meeting capacity is less than the current maximum as prescribed by government guidelines. This is due to meeting room constraints.

Please be aware that meetings have to comply with Government guidelines and unique requirements of their venue to provide a safe as possible environment. This includes wearing a face covering, reduced venue capacity, social distancing, bringing own refreshments and cleaning for example.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FACE COVERING WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES

There are four types of meeting now:
  1. The physical meeting either replaces the Zoom meeting or there was no existing Zoom meeting - Physical only
  2. The physical meeting and Zoom meeting are combined into a Hybrid meeting. You can find the relevant Zoom meeting in the 'ONLINE MEETINGS' section of the website.
  3. The Zoom meeting continues without a physical meeting - Zoom only. Zoom meetings will continue to appear in the 'ONLINE MEETINGS' section of the website.
  4. The Zoom meeting continues and runs separately from the physical meeting - Parallel meeting.
The meeting type will be indicated in this section.
