AA’s Preamble and 7th Tradition tell us: There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions….
The Seventh Tradition: Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

“Experience has taught us also, that AA as a whole needs to be self-supporting and independent.”
AA at Fairview Riverside serves suffering alcoholics with time, fellowship, meetings, and sponsors. In addition, your donations help us bring support such as:

It is that time of the year for each group to elect a member to serve on the Board of Trustees. Please read this or raise this issue at your AA Meetings. Serving on the Board is a great way to serve your AA group and to meet other members of the Fairview Riverside AA community. Your participation is very important at this time! Please send a representative.
The purpose of the Board of Trustees is to serve the Groups of A.A. at Fairview Riverside as a common voice in matters concerning the A.A. membership and other groups, Fairview Riverside Rehabilitation Center, the A.A. community in Minnesota, and the A.A. community at large. As a practical matter, the Board of Trustees manages the finances, paying rent to the hospital, and decides what percentages and amounts of collected contributions are distributed to the AA service organizations.
The Board also coordinates 12 step opportunities for the groups, and organizes and staffs the St. Mary’s/Fairview Riverside hospitality suite at Gopher State Round-up. The Board of Trustees for AA at Fairview Riverside meets at 6:15 p.m. on the second Sunday of every month at the lobby lounge by the Brennan Center in the east building.
If any group has any questions, concerns, or comments that they would like to bring to the attention of the Board of Directors, please send a note or letter through the mailbox on the fifth floor, call Bruce M. (Treasurer) at (612) 816-7929, or e-mail Bruce M. at email@example.com AA at Fairview Riverside Board of Trustees
