If you are wanting to start a new group. Congratulations! Grab your Big Book, a coffee pot, and see the information below.

A few things to consider as you create a new group is what exactly is The AA Group? The pamphlet linked called P-16 will give you an understanding of what an AA Group is and what is needed for it.

A Table of Contents of The Group Handbook, called F-119, can be found at the link provided.

Let's say you are ready to get started. Well, you'll want to register your group with GSO so others can find you on the Meeting Guide App

To register as a group you will want to fill out and submit this form (F-30).

If you are updating your group's information you will want to fill out this form (F-28).

Finances can be a very confusing piece of the puzzle. Fortunately there is information found here (MG-15).

Now that you have all the information needed to start a new group, remember Dr. Bob's prescription to the alcoholic:

  • Clean House

  • Help Others
