    Area 86 Western Ontario
    February 24-26, 2023
    St Catharines, Ontario

    CERAASA 2023 is shaping up to be a full weekend of activity featuring the following: all Ten Area Delegates will give their 2-minute highlights and we will have workshops to discuss agenda items for the conference. There will be presentations from members on topics of interest to A.A. as a whole. The Trustee’s will be giving updates from their committees. More importantly, this weekend gives all A.A. members a chance to become part of the process by having your voice heard through discussions and questions and answer sessions. Translation services will be provided throughout the weekend in all the main ballroom events. There will also be separate French and English workshops and panels. A dinner banquet will be held on Saturday where we will sit together for a meal and a Speaker. Oh, and of course an Ice Cream Social on Friday night.

  • ONLINE MEETINGS

    ONLINE MEETINGS

    For recovering alcoholics, in A.A. most all-in person meetings are cancelled in order to comply with health authority recommendations. There have a variety of online meetings appearing in various platforms including Zoom, GoToMeeting and Google Hangouts among others.

    Please note our 11th Tradition states “Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion, we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press radio and films.”

    Our telephone answering volunteers have access to information about online meetings in the Halton area, please speak to one of them if you have interest at 905-845-5900.

    With thanks to the NY Intergroup, please see tips for Zoom users: With the rush to shift to online meetings, many of us did not take time to investigate what this meant to the spiritual foundation of our recovery – namely, anonymity. Now that online meetings are accessible, we want to pass on best practices for protecting anonymity. These have been curated from the membership and online resources.

    The default Zoom settings run counter to AA’s spiritual foundation of anonymity. The meetings are publicly accessible and full names and faces are often displayed. Additionally, by default all Zoom meetings are recorded to the cloud. Turning that feature off is simple, fortunately.

    There are other settings in the Meeting subtab that can also be adjusted, such as disallowing remote control of devices, file transfer, data sharing with Zoom, and screen sharing.

    Here are some suggested settings for your meeting to use. Please note that most, if not all, of the settings below are not the Zoom default:

    Go to: Settings > Recording and click off the Local and Cloud recording features.
    In the Zoom Settings section, under the Meeting subtab:

    • Require Encryption for Third Party Endpoints
    • Disable Auto saving chats
    • Disable File transfer
    • Disable Feedback to Zoom
    • Disable Screen sharing
    • Disable desktop/screen share for users
    • Disable Remote control
    • Allow Virtual background (this is the Zoom default and allows the user to use a virtual background instead of the inside of their apartment, for example)

    In the Zoom Settings section, under the Recording subtab:

    • Disable Local recording
    • Disable Cloud recording
    • Disable Automatic recording

    We will update this page with additional information as we learn it and encourage you to share tips and tricks with us that we can include.

  • A HELPING HAND FOR OUR CONFINED FRIENDS

    CORRECTIONS CORRESPONDENCE SERVICE in Canada (CCS)

    A HELPING HAND FOR OUR CONFINED FRIENDS

    This invaluable 12 step service, sponsorship through the mail, connects our confined friends behind the walls with outside members. CCS allows our confined members access to the program, insuring the hand of AA is always there. Much talk has been done with little action. Do all of our confined friends know this service exists? Have we done all that we can to carry the message?

    WHAT WE CAN NOT DO ALONE….WE CAN DO TOGETHER

    For more information on the implementation of CCS in your AREA, Please contact Ruth L at: [email protected]
