Understandably, there will be disruptions in West Hawaii AA due to the Coronavirus. We will try to provide as many updates as we can on this website. Or, feel free to call our AA Hotline at 808-329-1212.
Online Meetings. Some meetings are using video conferencing apps like Zoom for their meetings. Here is a list of online meetings: Online Meetings. The San Francisco/Marin County intergroup has clear and detailed help for setting up remote meetings. If you are hosting or thinking about hosting an online meeting, this is good resource.
In-Person Meetings. West Hawaii Central Office (WHCO) has received notice that some AA meetings are re-opening and will be available for in-person meetings. WHCO is providing notice of these meetings on our Meetings tab above. This tab will show meetings as either as:
1) Greyed-out and “Temporarily Closed” (many of these groups will have online meetings as mentioned above); or
2) Open with location information.
Disclaimer. The open meetings are listed for informational purposes only and WHCO takes no position, and makes no representations, nor guarantees that these meetings comply with current federal, state or local laws as they apply to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, WHCO takes no position, and makes no representations, nor guarantees that attendance at these meetings is safe and that the meetings do or will comply with currently suggested social distancing or other healthcare protocols.
Thanks everyone for your patience in this difficult time. Mahalo.
New to AA?
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses not opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

What is Central Office?
West Hawaii Central Office, or “Intergroup,” helps AA reach out to people who may have a drinking problem and to provide information to the public. Three of our most important activities are:
- Maintaining the West Hawaii AA Meeting Schedule. We have our Meetings listed on this website and also post a printed Meeting Schedule.
- Stocking a supply of AA Conference-approved Literature at our office.
- Running our AA Hotline. AA member volunteers answer our phone 24-hours a day, every day. Call (808) 329-1212.
