Original Post(3/19/20): Members of the McAllen Share Group AA Meeting, after thoughtful consideration, we are suspending all McAllen Share Group Meetings effective 1:00 pm on March 20th, 2020, making Friday’s (3/20) Noon meeting the final meeting until further notice. The decision was made in part by an order that went into effect at 5 pm on March 19th by the City of McAllen. We encourage that you visit online meeting groups, YouTube™ speaker meetings, read the Grapevine®, or attend the Conference Meetings that have been set up by District 10. As always, health and safety are of peak importance, as is our sobriety. Any changes or announcements will be made available via this website or through GC members.
Updated Post(3/20/20): After further consideration, meetings at McAllen Share Group will resume as regularly scheduled. However, there is an exception. The exception states that there should only be a maximum of 10 people in the building (Not per room) at a single time. The chairperson will enforce the exception. The chairperson may kindly ask anyone who causes the capacity of 10 to be exceeded, as ordered by the City of McAllen, to vacate the meeting. Please refer to the COVID-19 Announcement for information about other meeting options. As always, health and safety are of peak importance, as is our recovery.

As our Nation and her Leaders head towards resolving the issue, we must take specific steps that help to maintain the health and safety of our community. The district is currently taking appropriate measures to arrange phone-conference meetings and/or internet-web-cam meetings. We will be rolling out further information about this within the next several days. As always, we pray for your well being and hope to hear you at a virtual meeting soon.

As of April, the Wednesday and Thursday meetings in Weslaco will be put on pause across the warmer months. They will resume later in the year when our Winter Friends return. Please be advised that the schedule may not reflect this change. Thank you for your understanding. Meetings in the Mission-McAllen-Edinburg area are available to serve your recovery needs.
District 10 is currently looking for a new representative to represent the District at public and small speaking events. The role will serve as a form of education about Alcoholism to the public. The position prefers a minimum of 12 months sobriety and that the individual has worked the steps/program with a sponsor. This can be reviewed on a case by case.
