Welcome To Area 15 General Service Website

The South Florida Area Committee of Alcoholics Anonymous is a service body for the groups in Delegate Area 15. Its primary purpose is to provide a forum for sharing collective 12th Step experience – how best to carry the AA message in South Florida, the Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Antigua, St Maarten & Cayman Islands. The Area also has the responsibility to carry that message worldwide via the General Service Conference U.S./Canada.

Area 15 is supported by the voluntary contributions of the groups it serves. The Committee structure borrows much from “The AA Service Manual and Twelve Concepts for World Service” is ever mindful of the Twelve Traditions, Concepts for Service, and the Twelve Steps of AA.

Alcoholics Anonymous 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.
