Website Guidelines

Purpose

The purpose of this website is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous by providing a resource for information about A.A. on the internet and for locating A.A. meetings and activities in Santa Cruz county. These guidelines have been developed by the Intergroup Web Site Committee and approved by the By Laws Committee, in order to assure this website adheres to the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Content

The Website Committee shall review and approve, by group conscience, the content published on this website. No advertisements of any kind will be approved. The website will link to sites published by other A.A. entities, A.A. General Service, other recovery programs that are referenced by our Central Office. It is our objective to cooperate with, but not affiliate with, other recovery related entities and groups.

Anonymity

We observe all A.A. principles and Traditions on our website. As anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, we practice anonymity on our website at all times. An A.A. website is a public medium that has the potential for reaching the broadest possible audience, and therefore, requires the same safeguards that we use at the level of press, radio, film, and other media.

Costs

Our Central Office shall be responsible for costs associated with maintaining this website.

Copyrights

We abide by the A.A. General Service Office guidelines on copyright protection when quoting from A.A. World Services and A.A. Grapevine material.
