Active Meetings

If you find any errors in this list, please submit a comment below, and we will update the site. One of the most difficult and brave  decisions we each make is to walk through the doors of ACA.

    • Lynn, if you are still looking for a way to contact someone from the Battle Ground Phase 2 Recovery ACA meeting, please send me an e-mail message at . I used to attend that meeting before I moved to Portland, and I’m pretty sure I still have contact info for 1-2 other members.

      In loving service,
      Suki McD.

    • Hello! Sorry for the delay, unfortunately I have no knowledge of them, sometimes groups do dissipate without notification. If you are willing to try again, I would be very interested to know if they are there or not. Thank you!

      • So a friend and I went to the ACA meeting at Peacehealth tonight at 7 PM and there was no ACA meeting on the schedule inside the door when we got there. So we ended up going to the Family meeting but I wanted to know if we missed it somehow or if it had gotten canceled? I also thought maybe we misread it but I see now that it does say 7 PM there at that location. So I’m just wondering for future reference as well.

      • Hi~ unfortunately, I have no contact info for this meeting. If you happen to try again do let us know what you find, thank you and sorry I cannot be more useful.

      • At the Thursday night meeting in Vancouver at the hospital and nobody is here. The directory lists the meeting but there isn’t anyone here. Just wanted to let people know this meeting probably isn’t happening any longer.

  1. greetings,
    is the Thursday group that meets at the woman’s emergency center for the public or mostly for the woman that are part of the shelter?

  2. My name is Robin G. Please update the Salem Friday night meeting Step Study info. Beginning Sept 8th, we have started with step one. We encourage all who want to work the steps to join us. The meeting will be open until the first Friday in October, At that time we will close the meeting. Please change the contact info to Robin G. 503-476-4783

    Also, please correct the National ACA site meeting schedule for Salem, OR to 6-8 PM. Same contact info as above. Thank you

  3. Hello.
    Couple of things. The Tuesday meeting in Battle Ground is BEHIND the church in portable classroom and not IN the church, and
    Is there a way to see the most recent posts at the top of the site rather than scrolling to the bottom?
    Just a thought……

    • Yes, I agree. It’s very tedious to scroll through all the messages to find the most recent one. Please list them from newest to oldest.

  4. Hi, I recently volunteered as secretary for the new Sunday meeting, The Eastside at Taborspace ACA meeting.
    Please note under our description that Taborspace is closed December 25 and January 1 and we will not have meetings those days. Please also remove the sentence about extending the meeting. We are running from 6 to 7 PM. Thanks, Julie

  5. Update for the Eastside at Taborspace meeting: This meeting is currently running from 6 to 7pm and the new contact for questions is Also please note for us that Taborspace is closed November 27th, December 25th and January 1st so we will not have meetings those days. Thanks!

  6. Hi Everyone!

    I’m hoping to walk with others to form a Yellow Book step working group, preferably on Mondays at 5/5:30 (but also Tues–Thurs could work). My guidance is asking for a group comprised of a mix of members that includes at least a small number who have done some ACA Stepwork in recent months/years with a sponsor. I have a sponsor and have worked Steps elsewhere (in long term recovery), but am only this year developing a foundation in ACA. So…heres to asking!


    • Hi Rick,

      If you are still wanting to do this, we are forming a Skype group working through the yellow workbook on Saturdays. A couple years after your request, but hey!

      You can request the particulars through my WordPress contact.

  7. I went to the Secular ACA meeting tonight. 4 other people showed too, but no Secretary or anyone who had even been there before. Pretty much all newcomers to ACA but we rose to the occasion and had a good meeting. My concern is that Secular ACA may not have adequate support resources, and a different mix of newcomers might have been confused or not gotten what they needed. We were in the right room, I checked at the Alano desk.
    – Matt ACA

    • Hi Matt,
      Sincere apologies for your first visit to the Secular ACA meeting. We certainly want all newcomers to ACA to feel welcome and supported. We’re looking into ways we can further support this meeting and will post updates on its status as they become available. Thank you for rising to the occasion and being of service! We hope you will check out other ACA meetings listed above. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.

  8. Hi, I stopped by one meeting (A wed night at Alano) but no one elee came. is this normal or did I just ht a slow night?

    • Hi Patrick, I’m wondering if you may have been looking in a different room. I was at the 6:30 Wednesday meeting, and it was fairly full. Please send an email to with any questions. If the flyer is incorrect, we are happy to update it!

    • The Wednesday night meeting at the Alano Club is active and has regular attendees. The meeting is 6:30-8 pm – Gentleness Humor Love Respect – Alano Club, 909 NW 24th Ave (at Kearney), Portland, 2nd Floor, SE Room.

  9. I was wondering if any meeting thought about having child care? It seems like there would be such a big need for that. If anyone is interested in trying to start one with child care let me know- I would love to help set that up.

  10. New meeting Tuesday night in the Study Room at the Alano Club from 7-8:00. The focus of the meeting will be the steps… Please join us… Small intimate group…

  11. Port Orford also has a Saturday, 8:00 am meeting at Once Upon a Time Store. Florence, OR has a meeting, Monday at 3:00 pm, at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 19th and Tamarack.

  12. Please change the Saturday ACA “Awareness Change Action” meeting time to state: 12:00-1:30 . Because the current information is confusing and are arriving as the ends.

  13. Hi. New to Ashland. Closest mtg looks like it is in Medford. I noticed that mtg is not listed with ACA world org. Does anyone know if it is still happening? Thank you.

  14. Update on Thursday meeting in Gresham. Meeting time has been moved to start at 5:30 pm and go to 6:45 pm. I am now the group contact person.
    We also have a name now: “Love Coming From Action”

  15. I’m looking for a step meeting in pdx. Is there an open one in town? If not, is anyone else interested in a step study?

    • Hi Brien, tomorrow night there will be a meeting to discuss what’s involved in a Step Study group and how to start one! It will be held Monday, August 18th at 8pm at the Alano Club. The meeting will be held upstairs in the big meeting room. The Alano Club is located at 909 NW 24th Ave in Portland.

      • Hi Chris, I reached out on the site to find out about current step meetings, but haven’t received any responses. The best way to find out about open step group meetings is to ask in your meetings about current step groups. Another way that people often “find “a group is to start your own, or to gather names of interested people. Often, someone will pass around a list at the end of the meeting, saying that they’re interested in connecting with others would like to start a step group. There is more information on how to start a meeting on this site. Just go to the main menu, then “Start a Meeting”, then “Start a Step Meeting”.

  16. Is the Saturday morning meeting located at NE Broadway a general type meeting? I’m new to this so will appreciate any info on this one. Thank you!

  17. Is the Generation New Saturday morning meeting on NE Broadway a general type meet? I’m new to this so any info is appreciated. Thanks!

  18. I tried to attend the St. Helens, Oregon meeting on Saturday, April 13th, 2013 but some of the AA folks that were there said that there wasn’t an ACA meeting held there at the Alano Club St. Helens anymore. I don’t know if this is true because I could not find anyone to confirm this.

    • Thanks for your notification. We have been unsure if the meeting was still going. We are taking it off the active meeting list until such a time as we have been notified they are meeting.
