The West Great Lakes ACA Intergroup holds a monthly business meeting every month on the 3rd Saturday at 1:00 pm Central Time. That is on June 19th this month and we will be meeting using Zoom. Any ACA who attends meetings is welcome to join us and see/hear what is happening in the area. Each meeting is encouraged to appoint a representative to attend the meeting with voice and vote, but any meeting member in the area is welcome. If you are interested please send an email to email@example.com requesting the connection information and we’ll send it back via email and then, stop in a see/hear what we’re up to.
Having the ability to make donations to the West Great Lakes ACA Intergroup (WGLACA) by credit card has made donating very convenient and the item on the right sidebar has provided a Donate button and, for you techies, a QR code for quite some time. These links provide a convenient way to donate to the Intergroup using a credit card. But what if you have a Paypal Account, isn’t it supposed to be Fee Free? Yes, it is but you may not know the “trick” to paying directly from your Paypal account and avoid the fees.
There are a couple of requirements:
You must have a paypal account.
The money you want to donate must be in the account. (You can transfer from your connected bank account and then donate)

We direct our participants to donate the 7th tradition and have recently started including our meeting ID in our flyer. We hope that would cover our 7th Tradition.

Weekly Ready Set GO!! sessions have been scheduled out through the beginning of April. What a wonderful way for newbies and veterans to review all the steps and tools that ACA has to offer. Each week a number of steps are reviewed and participants have an opportunity to reflect on together. During the last 2 weeks Inner Child tools are introduced and practiced. If you can fit this into your schedule it will be well worth your time and will give you tools for recovery going forward. Below you will find flyers, dates and times, and information to participate in the upcoming sessions.
