The Solutions group of Alcoholics Anonymous is not affiliated with Austin Galano Club in accordance with the 6th tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Solutions Group is a closed meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, except the last Saturday of the month, which is an open speaker meeting. The speaker meeting may consist of a live speaker, a speaker tape, or a story from the Big Book. In support of A.A.’s singleness of purpose, attendance at closed meetings is limited to persons who have a desire to stop drinking. We ask that our sharing be confined to issues related to alcoholism.
If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you are welcome to attend this meeting. We are a women-sensitive meeting welcoming of folks in the LGBTQQAI community and their allies.

Dates to remember
The last Saturday of every month is a speaker meeting.
Group Conscience meetings are held bi-annually, in March and October, following the regularly scheduled AA meeting.
AA Service Work Opportunities
Our Solutions Group needs members who are willing to chair meetings. The chairperson’s responsibility includes arriving 10 to 15 minutes before the beginning of the meeting to greet attendees. If you are chairing the last Saturday of the month, you will choose the format for the speaker meeting.
General Service Representatives are the group’s link with the General Service Conference, through which the group shares its experience and voice to AA’s collective conscience. The GSR is sometimes called “the guardian of the Traditions,” and becomes familiar with AA’s Third Legacy–our spiritual responsibility to give service freely. GSRs will serve a 2-year term together, with no expectation of continuing another term. They will coordinate between themselves how to divide up and fulfill the GSR responsibilities.
Hill Country Intergroup
Intergroup representatives participate in Intergroup business meetings on a regular basis to share the group’s experience in carrying the AA message. The IGR seeks to keep the group well informed about what the local Intergroup is doing.
* For more information about AA service opportunities, see our group service guidelines or speak with one of our members.
Volunteer Opportunities at Austin Galano Club
The Austin Galano Club, where our Solutions Group meets, seeks volunteers to host the Coffee Bar as a way to help achieve its mission as a non-profit organization. To sign up for a shift, go to Coffee Bar Sign Up.
Steering Committee Minutes
Minutes from Steering Committee meetings, including information from our treasurer about seventh tradition donations and attendance, are available in our group binder.
About Alcoholics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals 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 nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
