“New York State on PAUSE” Executive Order

We will continue to offer help via telephone and chat to those in need of a meeting.

As of 8pm ET Sunday, March 22, New York State is under a “PAUSE” order by the Governor banning non-essential gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason. In lieu of physical meetings, our membership has quickly established remote (Phone / Online) meetings.  At this time, we do not know which, if any, physical meetings are still taking place. Please see the links below for remote meeting listings, how to set one up and how to submit a new listing. We are updating the list as quickly as possible and request your patience as we do so.

Supporting Meetings

New York Intergroup now offers Zoom video/telephone meeting accounts for groups. Accounts are capable of supporting up to 300, 500, & 1000 participants per meeting with default settings for security and anonymity. Groups continue to run their own meetings, at their regular dates and times, with their usual group format. We will simply provide the technology!

We're hosting 2,500+ Remote Meetings a Week!

Last month, as AA venues were forced to close, AA members everywhere immediately responded by creating online meeting places for fellow AA’s to find and share love, support, and sobriety. New York Intergroup is a big part of this effort—setting up a Zoom account which any AA group may use without charge. Currently we are facilitating more than 2,500 meetings a week, a figure that grows each day. New York Intergroup has enabled members from 132 countries to pass through the virtual doors of AA meetings 419,710 times to date. Our help desk has been amazingly busy as we have navigated this transition.

To continue to do our work, we continue to need you. In the past, we could rely on Seventh Tradition contributions from our member groups to assist us in carrying the message to the still-suffering alcoholic. That has become more difficult as groups no longer pass a physical basket and many have not created virtual ones. Whether as an individual or a group, we hope you’ll consider making a Seventh Tradition contribution to us so that we may continue to do vital Twelfth Step work. You may make a contribution via credit card, PayPal, or venmo: @nyintergroup.

The team at New York Intergroup is brimming with gratitude for both our sobriety and the many, many expressions of encouragement, appreciation, and support you have sent us—thank you!

Keep coming back!
