District 8 Area 15 General Service Website


Mission Statement

The Mission of District 8 Archives Committee is to document the work of Alcoholics Anonymous by collecting and preserving historical material relating to District 8.

Like any other A.A. service, the primary purpose of those involved in archival work is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous. Archives service work is more than mere custodial activity, it is the means by which we collect, preserve and share the rich and meaningful heritage of our fellowship. It is by the collection and sharing of these important historical elements that our collective gratitude for Alcoholics Anonymous is deepened.
