Special Needs/Remote Communities

  • Maine Area 28 Special Needs/Remote Communities Committee’s two fold purpose is to offer alternatives so that the AA message is accessible to anyone when requested, including the remote communities within Area 28.

  • Any interested member can be on the committee in addition to the appointed Chair, assigned District Chairs and any corresponding district committee chairs.

  • Each member of the committee has a vote within the committee if they have attended more than one meeting.

  • Votes will be determined by a simple majority.

  • The Committee will use the GSO guidelines/workbook when applicable, in their deliberations.

  • The committee will cooperate with other committees to try to insure the message is accessible to all.

  • The committee chair will meet and exchange information and material with the incoming Chair prior to the January Area Committee Meeting.

See the General Service Office Guidelines for Special Needs Committees.

There is also a Special Needs/Accessibility Workbook.
