Founders Day 2019 A Big Success!

Bluegrass, BBQ potluck, and plenty of shade.  This was really a wonderful event and it was terrific that so many people came – more than a hundred for sure – and that probably about half were from southern Marin.  It seems that our objective of serving the whole Marin AA area by having the event centrally located was met!
Philly John’s share was so great – funny of course, because that’s how he is – but also poignant and powerful in its messages.  Thanks so much John D!  
Amazingly too, even though it was so hot everywhere in Marin, under those redwood trees no one even broke a sweat – it was a great place to be today – so cool and peaceful feeling.  

The Marin Intergroup 2020 Purpose Is…

  • To serve the still-suffering alcoholic
  • To encourage Marin AA Unity by creating and organizing social and educational events
  • To support Marin AA Groups and Service Committees as requested
  • To provide a forum for communication by and for Marin AA Groups

MI 2020 does not currently intend to create a Central Office or Bookstore, as the existing one in San Francisco serves Marin. Also, there is no financial commitment required for a group to become a member.    Just ask your group to create a new service commitment – Liaison to MI 2020 – and then have the Liaison attend an MI 2020 meeting on the 1st Monday of the month at the Whistlestop at 7:00.  Then your group becomes part of planning Marin AA events and other activities serving the Marin Fellowship.

Currently there are 252 AA meetings at 72 locations in 17 regions of Marin County!  FIND A MEETING


New to AA?

The AA Preamble is usually heard at the opening of AA meetings:  “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 AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA 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.”  Find out more HERE
