A.A.s Voice Opinions on Speaker Expense

Should Pay Non-A.A.

I believe that whenever an A.A. group invites a non-alcoholic to speak, that group should offer to pay expenses. In most instances the offer will be declined but it should be made.

I am rather doubtful if many persons are making a living out of speaking at A.A. meetings. If they are, such persons will be quickly detected and the warning will go out through the usual channels and invitations will gradually cease.
