The Institutions Committee is responsible for carrying the A.A. message to persons unable to attend regular A.A. meetings.. Currently meetings are held in correctional facilities, treatment centers, adolescent facilities, homeless shelters, detox facilities, mental health facilities, half-way houses and community court facilities. In total, over 350 meetings a month are conducted by the Institutions committee.
The requirement for joining the Institutions Committee is a minimum of six months of continuous sobriety. Volunteers are given a brief orientation and asked to speak with a current member of the committee at 2 meetings prior to accepting a commitment.
The Institutions Committee provides soft cover Big Books to clients in facilities. These books are purchased by the committee. The Big Book Ball is held once a year as a fundraiser for the committee. Also pink cans are distributed among groups to encourage donations. Due to the increasing need for meetings and the rising cost of books, the need for donations is also growing.
