Around AA - Items of AA Information and Experience

Stress Anonymity

At the close of each meeting in Montreal, Que., a member of the group is called upon to stress the fact that this program is anonymous, and the only "must" we have in AA is that a member must not reveal another's name outside of AA.

I believe it is very important to announce this at all our meetings, so that the newcomer will understand it, and, being constantly reminded, will not make any mistake and possibly cause harm to another member.
