What to expect when you receive an invite to a local AA online meeting?  

As we are a small country area, we like to protect our members privacy.

If you are someone from out of area and we do not recognise your name or email, we may email you for more information.

1. After you request to join a particular meeting (see here),  you will receive an email that looks like this:zoom-meeting-invite-sample

2. Click the link, and a zoom.us webpage will open which looks like this. Complete the your registeration - you do not have to put your full name.

zoom-register-700

 

3. When you receive your meeting approval (see next image), you will see where you can join online - note the password in the email . 

You will be able to join by phone - NOTE the cost of the phone call will be at your expense. 
Check with your phone provider about this cost to you. 

4. Click the Join Online Link as shown in image below.
