The International Service Office of SAA (ISO) office has been receiving calls regarding how the COVID-19 (coronavirus) may be affecting our meetings and ISO planned events.
Although SAA groups are autonomous and must decide whether or not to meet according to their local group conscience, the ISO recommends that groups follow the CDC guidelines. You can find more info from the CDC at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html.
At this time we only know of one retreat that has been postponed. The San Francisco Bay Area SAA has decided to postpone their “Out of the Fog and into the Light 2020 Retreat” that was scheduled for March 13th to 15th. There are no plans to postpone or cancel either the ISO convention in May or the ISO conference in October. For up-to-date information regarding visit saa-recovery.org and click on News & Events. The ISO is closely monitoring the relevant health advisories regarding COVID-19.
