Zoom Committee

WAI offers Zoom support to local AA groups. Groups may request that WAI setup a Zoom meeting for online or hybrid (online + in-person) AA meetings, with no cost and less overhead to the group (e.g., Zoom account & subscription, recurring payments, etc).

To request Zoom support, please call the office or submit this form: Zoom Request Form.

WAI also offers Zoom training to help groups setup and conduct Zoom meetings on their own, safely and effectively.
