AA Oklahoma – Event Submission Criteria
Criteria for Listing Events on the Area 57 Calendar or Web Site:
The broad general criteria for an event to list on the calendar or website is that it be consistent in intent with the traditions and the preamble. In other words, it should not have requirement for “dues or fees”, should not be associated with any entity outside AA,, etc In addition, the Area 57 website has no desire to become a widespread listing of any and all events everywhere.
The following events are deemed to be within those guidelines, and will be routinely listed:
Area 57 sponsored events will be listed, including Area Meetings, Area Sharing Sessions, State Sponsored Workshops, and the Oklahoma State Conference.
Events Sponsored by the Southwest Region: SWRAASA and Southwest Regional Forums.
Events sponsored by Area 57 Districts will be listed, including District Meetings, District Sponsored Conferences, District Sponsored Picnics, District Sponsored Workshops.
Events sponsored by the Oklahoma City Intergroup and the NE Oklahoma Central Service will be listed, including quarterly delegate’s meetings, open houses, and fund raisers.
OKYPAA and ICYPAA themselves, but not fundraisers etc related to them.
Area/State Conferences will be listed for Areas within the Southwest Region of AA.
The following events will not be listed.
No events will be listed on the same dates as the Oklahoma State Conference or the Area 57 quarterly meeting.
Events outside Oklahoma, other than official State or Area Sponsored Conferences and ICYPAA
Al-Anon Events or any other events associated with entities outside AA.
Other events submitted for listing on the calendar or website must be reviewed and approved by the Area Media Services Chair and the webmaster for consistency with the traditions, and concepts before listing.
