Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Central Office is fully supported by AA Group contributions, and serves the membership as the membership asks it to. Just like all AA groups, the Los Angeles Central Office's primary purpose as stated in the pamphlet 'This is AA': A.A. 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.

The Central Offices asks its membership how it can serve them, participating AA meetings elect voting members and decisions are made by, what AA refers to as, group conscience, it is as simple as that.

Since 1944, the Los Angeles Central Office exists only because of AA meeting, AA group and individual AA member contributions. Los Angeles Central Office supports the AA community with contributions from its membership only, contributions/donations from outside its membership are not accepted. As long as the Los Angeles County AA membership supports their AA Central Office, the organization will continue to serve at the communities pleasure.

The progress, like the the AA program of recovery, can be measured only one day at a time. Our progress is being there to answer that call from the individual calling today to ask for help so they can stop drinking.
