Do you have a flier, event, or news item you would like posted on this site?If you are hosting an AA event in the Tidewater area and would like to have it posted on this site, please send your information and/or flier to: email@example.com. When posted, the flier will appear on the News pages. If submitted early enough, your event will also be published in the Harmony. firstname.lastname@example.org For your flier to be posted we must have signed written permission in the possession of the TIC office for each person named, or whose contact information appears on the document. Only displaying a person's first name and first initial of last name does not exempt this requirement. If your document does not include any names, numbers, or personal address information, it will be significantly easier to qualify for inclusion on this site. Further, the document must be related to Alcoholics Anonymous and be of interest to the Tidewater area AA community.
An interactive map of meetings in the Tidewater area is available on this site. This is a great tool for finding meetings. If you are manning the phone watch, keep this page open and you will never have a problem getting the right meeting information to callers. Just enter an address or intersection, and you will immediately see what meetings are nearby. Use the "Show/Hide Filter" button to further narrow your search criteria. The meeting map allows you to enter your location and see meeting locations in relation to where you are. Select "Filter" and you narrow your search by: Day of the Week, Time of the Day, City, and Meeting Type. Clicking the AA logo on the top left of the map will bring you back to this page. "OP" are open meetings. Open meetings are open to all including those simply curious about AA. "C" meetings are limited to those have a problem with alcohol. If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you are welcome at closed meetings. If you are not sure and have been sent by the courts, ASAP, SARP or other professionals who appreciate the effectiveness of the program of AA, you might be more comfortable attending an "open meeting", they are often structured for those not sure, or not yet ready to admit powerlessness over alcohol.
