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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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”.

  5. 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”

  6. 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.

    • Hi Carrie, a fellow ACA member responded to say that he saw the meeting was canceled a few months ago. I’m sorry for the confusion, and will have our site updated. If you are interested in phone meetings, please check out adultchildren.org

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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 acaoregon@gmail.com 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.

  12. 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.

    • 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.

  13. 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!

    -Rick

  14. Update for the Eastside at Taborspace meeting: This meeting is currently running from 6 to 7pm and the new contact for questions is julieacapdx@gmail.com. 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!
