How To Do Aa Meetings On Zoom

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings are a crucial part of recovery for many individuals struggling with alcohol addiction. With the current global pandemic, in-person meetings have become difficult and even impossible in some areas. However, thanks to technology, AA meetings can now be held virtually on platforms like Zoom.

Setting Up a Zoom Meeting

The first step in hosting an AA meeting on Zoom is to set up the meeting. This involves creating a Zoom account, scheduling a meeting, and sending out invitations to attendees. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Create a Zoom account if you don’t already have one.
  2. Log in to your Zoom account and click on “Schedule” in the left-hand menu.
  3. Enter the meeting details, such as the date, time, and duration of the meeting.
  4. Select “Recurring Meeting” if you plan to hold regular meetings at the same time each week.
  5. Choose a meeting ID or let Zoom generate one for you.
  6. Select “Require meeting password” and enter a password that will be used for all meetings in this series.
  7. Click on “Save” to create the meeting.

Inviting Attendees

Once you have set up the meeting, it’s time to invite attendees. You can do this by clicking on “Copy Invitation” in the Zoom meeting details and pasting the link into an email or messaging app. Alternatively, you can use the “Invite” button to send out individual invitations.

Hosting the Meeting

On the day of the meeting, log in to your Zoom account and click on “Start” next to the meeting you want to host. You will be prompted to download the Zoom app if you haven’t already done so. Once the app is installed, you can start the meeting and wait for attendees to join.


Hosting AA meetings on Zoom has become a lifeline for many individuals in recovery during these challenging times. By following the steps outlined above, you can set up and host your own virtual meeting, providing a safe and supportive space for others to share their experiences and find strength in community.
