The Wednesday Night Round Rock meeting “Self Care” is temporarily relocating to the sanctuary of the church starting March 13 and continuing there until April 10, after which it should move back to Grace House.

Four meetings removed from SAA Austin website

Tonight, four meetings were removed from this website’s meeting list by decision of the Austin Intergroup today. The decision was made after a month of deliberation and dialogue by an ad hoc committee, which reported to the intergroup.

The reasons for the decision were concerns with repeated violations of the traditions of SAA on the part of members of the Steps We Take Men’s Big Book Study Groups.
