Open Discussion Chairperson
Wed (Wed-6:00 PM )


Hi everyone, my name is ______________________ and I’m an alcoholic.

Welcome to the 6pm Wednesday open discussion meeting of Lambda. Lambda is a special
interest group of Alcoholics Anonymous for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender
individuals, but in the spirit of the 3rd tradition, all are welcome.

The A.A. Preamble:

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,
strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help
others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to
stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting
through our own contributions. 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.

Lambda currently has three online meetings weekly: Wednesdays this open discussion meeting and a 7:15pm beginners' meeting. Saturdays there is a rotating step meeting from 6-7:15pm.

Our anniversary meeting is held on the last Wednesday of every month taking the place of this meeting. Our business meeting is held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm.

The format of this meeting is we'll have a speaker share 20 minutes followed by a
secretary's break. We'll resume the meeting with a show of hands until 7pm.

A brief reminder of the 12th Tradition of A.A.: anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all of our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities. So who you see here and what you hear here, please leave it here, so that this remains a safe place for us all.

Lastly, please keep yourself muted so as not to interfere with the speaker.

And now to share their experience, strength and hope with us is ___________
