How to get the Word Out


ACA membership is based on attraction rather than promotion (tradition 11).

This means that we can make meeting announcements that include time, date, subject matter.

Promotion means that we cannot make any promises.
Such as “If you want to be a happier person, then join us in ACA.” or “We can help you get a balanced life.” or “…a healthier life.” or any such thing.

See attached Word document for a sample meeting announcement flyer. You can fill in your meeting date, address, and directions.
Feel free to change the wording as long as you don’t make any promises or do any promotion.
GET PERMISSION from establishment (if needed) before posting on bulletin boards.
(coffee shops, churches, libraries, community centers, Alano’s, . . .)
