COVID-19 Update and Virtual Meetings

Meetings taking place at the Atlantic Club in West OC are still on as scheduled at this time, with a limitation of 10 people per meeting. All other meetings held in area churches and community centers are temporarily suspended.

Some Home Groups have set up online meetings. If your Home Group is doing this, please email the details to and we will post it so others can join in. Here’s some guidance on how to set up a remote meeting with Google Hangout, Zoom or FreeConferenceCall.

Listed below are some Virtual Meetings taking place now in the Ocean City Intergroup:

Intergroups outside of Area 29 are also maintaining lists of online meetings:

Online Meeting Resources: with the statewide orders to limit in-person gatherings, many of us are experiencing online, virtual, or dial-in meetings for the first time. Please keep in mind that not everyone has online access from their home and consider ways to include those alcoholics in your virtual meetings! I want to highlight a few resources that we’ve run across which might be generally helpful as you participate in or host online or dial-in meetings:

Weekly Area 29 Zoom Call: Area 29 will be hosting a weekly Service zoom call on Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m, starting this Saturday, March 28, 2020. If needed, we will announce an adjustment to that timing to accommodate for the virtual Mini-Conference, which is scheduled for April 4. These weekly zoom meetings will be your opportunity to connect with other trusted servants in Area 29 to discuss any issues that you are facing in your local groups, districts, or intergroups as we navigate virtual meetings and other issues caused by the pandemic. The meeting will last for one hour and is open to anyone doing any kind of service work in Area 29 (local group, Intergroup, District, Area, etc.).
