It is important for A.A. members to understand the difference between the "club" and "group." The "club" is organized outside of A.A. and is a non-profit corporation. Think of it as the PROPERTY. The "group" is the A.A. MEETINGS. The main tenant of this club is the Saddleback Valley Group of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is made up of the approximately 50 meetings that meet at the Saddleback Valley Fellowship Center.
For a very good explanation of how clubs work in A.A., please visit A.A.'s New York General Service Office website and read the guidelines on "Clubs" by clicking here.

As we say in A.A., "There's more to A.A. than just meetings." Whether it be meeting for coffee before or after meetings, or participating in common interests and activities members can find other members with whom to identify.
To this end, a Fun Committee has been developed to schedule regular activities of common interest to our members. If you are interested in participating on the Committee, please send an email by clicking here.
Please indicate your first name and last initial, email address, telephone number and activities that interest you.
You will be contacted by one of the Committee members to help serve the Club, the Group, and most importantly, other alcoholics. Thank you for your participation!
