Reasons for starting a new meeting vary, but the way to go is always the same.

Important to establishing an A.A. meeting is the

  • need for one as expressed by at least two or three alcoholics
  • the cooperation of other A.A. members
  • a meeting place
  • a coffeepot
  • A.A. literature and meeting list
  • other supplies.

Once the meeting is off for a good start, it would be helpful to inform the aa-netherlands website, the local intergroup office and the General Service Office. These resources can provide much support.
