Where to look
If you’re looking for , the best place to look is online. There are plenty of resources out there, and it’s a quick way to find information on the meetings you’d most like.
Some of the time, there isn’t a single location where everyone meets. Instead, people may post their meeting details on websites that are specific to AA in Colorado Springs or even just in Pikes Peak Region.
Posting Meeting Details
Different places have different rules about how much information you’re allowed to put up on your website. Many websites only post the name of the meeting and its time, while some are more open with their information.
If you’re not sure what’s allowed on a specific site, always ask before posting any details that aren’t already publicly available. It may be against policy to list additional info through links or new posts – if you’re unsure, don’t do it.
