Archives Committee


Mission Statement
The Area 53 Archives Committee works to aid groups, districts and the Area Committees in preserving our AA story. This includes maintaining a repository of valuable artifacts and records from our past and present to ensure the integrity of the Area 53 history.


Our Collection

Holdings of the Area 53 Archives Committee include the the physical collection of Area 53 documents, speaker recordings, and memorabilia as well as online oral histories.  We are guided in this work by resources from the AA General Service Office and the National AA Archives Workshop.
