3. The Public Relations Committee receives requests from treatment centers in the metro area, and organizes GA members to speak at those facilities.

Take part in a telephone meeting every Wednesday from 8:00 - 9:30 pm! This is a weekly open topic meeting for compulsive gamblers. Newcomers are welcome! While this is not designed to replace a physical meeting, it is an excellent resource for filling in gaps between regular meetings.

Get Involved and Be Of Service!
Gamblers Anonymous exists because thousands of recovering gamblers have given countless hours of service. Setting up rooms, leading meetings, and cleaning up after, are usually the first service roles that we perform. But as we grow in recovery, more service opportunities present themselves. Each is a way to strengthen our GA community, and a way to practice Step 12. Click here for a flyer with descriptions of several exciting and fulfilling service opportunities available.
