When attending an A.A. meeting, new members are typically asked to introduce themselves and read from the Big Book. Readings often center on topics like How It Works or More About Alcoholism. New members are also asked to read a statement about anonymity. This is done to avoid causing embarrassment.
GSIG is not an authoritative body
While there are numerous online meetings available, the Greater Seattle Intergroup for the 7th Tradition (GSIG) does not offer a treatment center or serve as an authority. Rather, it is a support group for groups looking to host meetings over the Internet. It is also a resource for groups seeking to join the AA program.

It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.
GSIG does not conduct meetings
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings can take place in person, by telephone, or in an outdoor setting. Some meetings are video meetings, while others are dial-in conference calls. The purpose of these meetings is to help people recover from alcoholism by getting together with people in similar situations.
GSIG does not monitor COVID-19
The GSIG does not monitor COVID 19. This SIG is focused on the telehealth industry and supports its expansion. It provides guidance on caregiving and aging issues and engages in strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations. The SIG’s mission is to improve quality of life and prevent disease in older Americans.
GSIG does not have a policy on court slips
GSIG, or the Greater Seattle Intergroup, is an online meeting site for AA. It is not a treatment center or authority. The site has contact information for groups that want to become a part of AA.
GSIG does not have a policy on video conferencing
Video conferencing is not always allowed, but some groups use it to hold online meetings. In addition, some groups use it to facilitate a question-and-answer session. The moderator may read questions from a dedicated chat room channel or call on members who raise their hands. Video conferencing also provides a way to monitor chat conversations. When a group is using video conferencing for an online meeting, it should list the person as moderator in the video’s name.
