There is NO COST for meetings. We do have group expenses such as rent, literature, outreach, and donations to the World Service Office, Regional Intergroups etc., which vary from one meeting to the next. Our Seventh Tradition states that we are self-supporting. We take up a collection for the Seventh Tradition but no one is obligated to contribute. Through these collections, our bills are paid and contributions are made to the Regional Intergroups where they have been formed and to World Service Office for updating the Directory of Meetings, literature production and distribution, information phone lines, offices and speakers bureaus.
