Welcome to the New England Gamblers Anonymous Website!
Meeting Closures due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)
There is no higher priority to the Fellowship of Gamblers Anonymous than the well being of its members during this difficult time.
The Fellowship of Gamblers Anonymous is not responsible for meetings that have had to close because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our ISO (International Service Office) is doing it’s best to keep up with all the meeting closures throughout the world.
In an effort to help those members whose meetings have closed as a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Telephone Conference Call Committee has expanded the Wednesday night meeting to include every night of the week from 9:00-11:00 PM Eastern time. The call in information for the Wednesday night meeting is: Phone Number 712-770-4160 – Access Code 611704#.
Access Codes for all other meetings will be updated Wednesday via the Trustee Line on the Trustee website or by request using the following email email@example.com. They have also added a meeting to be held on Fridays from 3:00-4:00 PM Eastern time. Call in information will also be provided by Wednesday.
The committee has also provided an email address to any member/group looking to start a temporary phone meeting until such a time when your meeting reopens. Such meetings are for the purpose of continuity so that members can still “attend” meetings, but would not be considered a recognized GA meeting until such a time they met all of the criteria as set forth by the Board of Trustees. The committee will also be offering several options for training webinars. That email Address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reach out to one another regularly using your phone lists, email lists, etc. Become part of the solution and volunteer your time to the Telephone Conference Call committee. The need for volunteers has never been so crucial as it is now during this health crisis!
For further information of COVID-19 (coronavirus), please refer to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the WHO (World Health Organization).
Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who meet on a regular basis to share their experience, strength, and hope in order to arrest their gambling and cope with other gambling-related problems. We have found that the sharing of truthful feelings and thoughts at meetings is an extremely powerful antidote in helping people to stop, and stay stopped from gambling. However, even if a person continues to wager or has periodic relapses, he or she is still encouraged to attend meetings.
