FINDING VIRTUAL MEETINGS THAT MAY BE IN YOUR AREA

Click the blue “UNITED STATESFace to Face Meetings” square then choose a state from the map and then a city.

Any face-2-face meeting which is currently virtual will be noted as such—but you have to click on the group name to see the full record.

Click on the meeting name (scroll down to see it) for the full record and scroll down to see any special instructions—many meetings are asking folks to email or text for the password.

You can type in any distance you choose, even 1000 km. or mi.

FINDING MEETINGS OUTSIDE OF THE US (MAY BE MEETING VIRTUALLY)

A RANDOM SEARCH FOR ZOOM MEETINGS

Use the general search field that is to the left of the “Donate” button on any page and enter “ZOOM”  then click on any of the group names for the full record and scroll down for any special instructions.

Note the “LOAD MORE” button at the bottom of the listings—it will allow you to see page after page of meetings.

SEARCHING ONLINE MEETINGS

On the “homepage” scroll almost half way down and click on the orange “Find a Meeting” rectangle.

Click the green “ONLINE Meetings” square.

Choose days/time/zones, etc.  Once you pick any choice, the other menus will only show what is available given the first choice.  In other words, if you pick a day on which there is no “women only meeting” that choice will not appear.   At this time most of the listings are not yet showing the city and/or country information.

Please look at the full record by using the Meeting name link.  Many of the meetings are requiring folks to email listed contacts to receive the password or some other vital information about the meeting.

To perform an additional search you have to return to the previous page either by hitting “New Search” or simply using your back arrow.  Or you can reset each category to its title, i.e. reset Language to Language at the top of the menu.

SEARCHING PHONE MEETINGS

On the “homepage” scroll almost half way down and click on the orange “Find a Meeting” rectangle.

Click the orange “PHONE Meetings” square.

You can only make one pick at a time (there is a slight delay between choosing the various items.

Hint:  if the day is the most important factor in searching at any given time, pick that first, and so on…

Please always look at the full record by clicking on the Meeting Name; scroll down to see any special instructions.
