Alcoholics Anonymous in Mississippi
Welcome to the official website of Area 37 of Alcoholics Anonymous. Area 37 covers the entire state of Mississippi and is one of 93 areas in the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous (United States/Canada).
Each year, elected officers, district (DCMs) and group (GSRs) representatives, as well as appointed committees, gather together at four quarterly assembly meetings to discuss and vote upon issues affecting A.A. at the state level. We also elect a delegate to represent us at higher levels.
All Area 37 members are welcome to attend assembly meetings, but only those elected as DCMs, GSRs, officers/alternate officers, delegate/past delegates, and standing committee chairs may cast a vote.
We are responsible directly to the groups we serve. Our membership consists of approximately 200 A.A. groups from more than 100 Mississippi towns and cities.
The purpose of this website is to make information for meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous throughout the state of Mississippi more readily available to those seeking a meeting. All information is provided solely for the purpose of helping the alcoholic make direct, face-to-face contact with A.A.
Alcoholics Anonymous Preamble:
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.
AA’s Responsibility Declaration:
"I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible."
