7th Tradition

The 7th Tradition

Every ACA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.


Members of ACA donate to help support their local meetings, intergroup and the ACA World Service Office (WSO).  Traditionally, local meetings, after paying their expenses and maintaining a prudent reserve, donate 60% of the remainder to Intergroup, 30% to Region, and 10% to WSO.

Contributions on this page to the National Capital Area Intergroup support area wide events (such as Recovery Day) and other intergroup expenses. Your support is appreciated.
