Groups may requests that WAI setup and schedule a Zoom meeting for their particular meeting, which allows for online or hybrid (online + in-person) AA meetings to be conducted with less overhead for the group (e.g., Zoom license & subscription, computer hardware & software, etc).

To request Zoom support from WAI, you may call the office or submit this form: Zoom Request Form.
