They donate their time and expertise to ACA service because they want to give back to the fellowship that brought them sanity. The fellowship benefits from their service work, which is but one part of a greater effort by the entire fellowship. There is no professionalism here. These are professionals doing the good work of ACA alongside fellow ACA members from all levels of social standing, education, and recovery. All ACA members have a talent or passion that can benefit ACA’s well being.The heart of the matter is that the demand for ACA meetings and ACA support is far greater than the number of groups and volunteers we have available to meet the demand.

We give our time and our own money because we believe in helping one another.
