Correctional Facilities

  • The purpose of the committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to alcoholics behind the walls, and to set up means of smoothing the way from the facility to the larger A.A. community.

  • The Chair is appointed by the Maine Area Chair following the Election Assembly in October and shall serve a two-year term beginning in January of the following year.

  • The Committee shall include the appointed Chair, any District Chair assigned by the Area Chair, all corresponding District Corrections Chairs and any District or Group Corrections Committee members.

  • Each member of the committee has a vote within the committee and a simple majority shall constitute a passing vote within the committee.

  • The committee shall meet at each Area Committee Meeting and at each Assembly. The Committee Chair may call special meetings, if necessary.

  • The current chairperson is responsible for passing forward all information and documents for the committee to the next incoming Chair of the committee.
