Tradition Five: Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

Please contact the Meeting List Chair about meeting openings as they occur.  The Rockland County Meeting Lists and the website will be updated accordingly.  This will ensure that face-to-face meetings are accessible to all, including those unable to attend virtual meetings.  Hybrid meetings combine virtual meetings and Face-to-Face meetings.

Before attending, please check meeting notes on location, social distancing, masks, location, etc.
