Facilitate carrying the message to inmates who have a desire to stop drinking; helping them with AA inside and upon release.
The Corrections Committee for Area 78 serves the fellowship in a way that directly impacts the lives of many suffering alcoholics. Many new people entering Alcoholics Anonymous today come to us via a Corrections facility. The Corrections chair works with local districts and chairs throughout Area 78 to reach out to the alcoholics in the local facility. We also cooperate with the administration staff of these facilities in any way we can.
The committee consists of the Chair, and current DCMs and GSRs who are assigned to the committee by the Area 78 Registrar for their two-year term of service. Others selected for the committee may include past Area 78 officers or long-time members recommended for their knowledge in Corrections service work. Area 78 visitors may participate on this committee, but they do not have a vote.
