SIA does not confirm or otherwise vet meeting information for accuracy or completeness, nor does it check or confirm that particular meetings are being held in compliance with any laws or regulations imposed by the state, local government or meeting facility (including COVID-19 related requirements or other health and safety considerations)
Meetings that have confirmed they have resumed face to face or in person meetings are marked as
COVID Reopen Confirmed in the Meeting Finder.
Check the meeting notes carefully for special instructions (e.g., Outdoor Meeting, Mask Requried, Social Distancing Required, BYO Chair / Book / Coffee).To view today’s REOPENED meetings go to the menu at the top of this page and select

The AA Meeting Guide App is a free of charge meeting finder app for iOS and Android that provides meeting information from hundreds of intergroups and other A.A. service entities, nation-wide, in an easy-to-access format.
Because we are limited in what information we can push to the meeting guide app,
COVID Reopen Status Unknown meetings and
Temporarily Closed meetings will be displayed similarly — both the group name and meeting location will be displayed using strikethrough text. (e.g.
THE STATUS UNKNOWN GROUP)

Note: On the SIA meeting list, a HYBRID meeting will have a single entry for both the REOPENED and ONLINE portions.
