About District 5 Committees


The primary purpose of those involved in archival work is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous.  The Archives Committee performs more than mere custodial activity; it is the means by which we collect, preserve and share the rich and meaningful heritage of our Fellowship.  We receive, process, and store archival materials in the District 5 Repository, and make these materials available to members and others who might need to learn from our history.  Such archives include, but are not limited to, administrative files, records, correspondence, recordings, literary works and artifacts considered important to our local Fellowship.

Cooperation with Treatment Facilities (CTF)

This committee takes meetings into treatment facilities and carries the AA message to the alcoholic who still suffers there. They share their experience, strength, and hope by utilizing the AA Meeting format which allows for sharing by all who attend.
