The AA Group Treasurer is one of the most responsible positions at your meeting:

  • Requires accuracy, attention to detail & accountability to the Group
  • The Treasurer should have a minimum of 2+ years of quality sobriety
  • Be well grounded in the Twelve Traditions & familiar with Group practices

Treasurer duties include but not limited to the following:

  1. Making sure the basket is passed honoring the 7th Tradition. It’s recommended the Treasurer have an assistant or helper.
  2. Take custody of money collected after basket is passed.
  3. Responsible for protecting Group’s funds (Checking Account). Treasurer and another senior member open account for safety and record keeping.
