Secular AA In Michigan

AA members in Michigan created an organization and website to encourage the establishment of more secular AA meetings and groups in their state. The site contains a wealth of information about secular AA meetings, including how to start a meeting. There is also a detailed description of the judicial outreach program underway in Michigan.  

Presently, there are ten secular AA meetings in Michigan in six different cities throughout the State. There is also a growing network of Michiganders online, thanks in great part to the private Facebook group that people can ask to join by friending Michi Holic, an avatar created to add people to the group.

Check out the site: secularaainmichigan.org.

    Great leadership (servitude). In a way, strong regional secular outreach and fellowship is more practical than our international community, ICSAA (International Conference of Secular AA).

    Arazona (WAAFT-AZ) was a great example to me if regional AA working together. Since 2015 Arizona secular AA has grown, connected with each other and ingratiated themselves with the larger AA community.

    For the second time, our provincial Ontario Regional Conference will offer a We Agnostics Secular Hospitality Suite for conference attendees to come enjoy some secular fellowship and either some vegan chilli or something a little more snack-like. That is March 9-11 @ Fairmont Royal York Hotel, if anyone is interested.

    Maybe we should have a Canadian Secular site and/or social media place where our meetings and members, some of them separated by 800 or more miles to the next secular meeting, can say “Hi,” or compare notes. I can find the address of Meeting in Halifax or Regina if I’m in those towns but I have no way of communicating with them, otherwise.

    Like the Michigan outreach and cooperation with correctional institutions, it would be good to offer our own secular AA outreach to the professional community-doctors, psychologists  and treatment biz. I’m sure there are some who would feel more comfortable directing clients of various creeds/faiths to a less Christian-sounding AA meeting. This cooperation with the professional community can more practically be managed regionally vs. Internationally.

    Another thought provoking post.
