Our A.A. Service Area, also known as Area 13 in the A.A. service structure, is also called the Washington Area General Service Assembly (WAGSA). Area 13 represents all English speaking A.A. groups in the District of Columbia and Prince George's and Montgomery County in Maryland at the annual A.A. General Service Conference. It also represents all Spanish-language A.A. groups in the District of Columbia, the state of Maryland, and Virginia.
“Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
