Computer and Technology Committee


Purpose:

The Computer and Technology Committee finds and implements ways in which technology can be used to further our primary purpose. We are a committee that meets monthly primarily in a supportive role to the other committees. When requested, we will assist other committees with how technology can be used to help them carry A.A.’s message, or to make carrying that message easier.
