Seventh Tradition

Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions. 

The A.A. groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own members. We think that each group should soon achieve this ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals, or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then, too, we view with much concern those A.A. treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated A.A. purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money, and authority. — Tradition Seven (long form)

As a service to the groups we have listed Best Practices for Resumption of in person meetings as well as RI State Regulations and CDC Guidelines to safely and legally reopen meeting spaces

We will begin listing in person meetings once the State of RI has entered Phase 3 of Re-Opening. If you plan on listing your group as open on our website, please call the office. You will be asked a few questions as to how your group plans to reopens safely. Please be aware that RICS Delegates have voted that any group that chooses not to follow the State of RI Regulations and CDC Guidelines regarding social gatherings will not be listed on the RICS Website., as we do not want to endorse any illegal or unsafe practices


Although there are very few physical meetings due to the COVID 19 epidemic

Central Service is maintaining a list of Zoom Meetings and Conference call meetings as well as providing links to other recovery information that may be accessed at



We are also maintaining a telephone list of contact for those unable to access a computer

Call Central Service at 401-438-8860 for more info


RI Central Service is in the process of up-dating our 12-STEP LIST. Anyone willing to be added to the list should contact their Group Secretary or call Central Service.

“When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there. And for that I am responsible”
