Guidelines for the Website

Purpose

The purpose of this website is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) by providing a resource for information about A.A. on the internet and for locating A.A. meetings in Calumet Area, including Northwest Indiana, southside of Chicago, and surrounding communities. These guidelines have been developed and approved by the Calumet Area Intergroup, in order to assure this website adheres to the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Content

The Calumet Area Intergroup has established a Website Committee that shall review and approve, by group conscience, the content published on this website. No advertisements of any kind will be approved. The website will link only to sites published by other A.A. intergroups and the General Service Office. It is our objective to cooperate with, but not affiliate with, other A.A. related entities and groups.

Anonymity

We observe all A.A. principles and Traditions on our website. As anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, we practice anonymity on our website at all times. An A.A. website is a public medium that has the potential for reaching the broadest possible audience, and therefore, requires the same safeguards that we use at the level of press, radio, film, and other media.

Costs

Our Central Service Office shall be responsible for costs associated with maintaining this website.

Copyrights

We abide by the A.A. General Service Office guidelines on copyright protection when quoting from A.A. World Services and A.A. Grapevine material. This is the official web site of Calumet Area Intergroup. Graphic images may not be downloaded, copied or duplicated without the express written permission of both the Calumet Area Intergroup and Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc.
