"Building wider understanding of the Twelve Traditions among A.A.s, especially as they pertain to online social networking sites, is a common P.I. activity ..."
- from AA Guidelines - Public Information
With that in mind, each month we will display the Tradition that corresponds to the number of the current month, alongside the original text from Twelve Points to Assure Our Future. This is taken directly from the A.A. pamphlet P-17 A.A. Tradition - How It Developed by Bill W.
June - Tradition 6
An A.A. group ought never endorse, finance or lend the A.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
Problems of money, property, and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. We think, therefore, that any considerable property of genuine use to A.A. should be separately incorporated and managed, thus dividing the material from the spiritual. An A.A. group, as such, should never go into business. Secondary aids to A.A., such as clubs or hospitals which require much property or administration, ought to be incorporated and so set apart that, if necessary, they can be freely discarded by the groups. Hence such facilities ought not use the A.A. name. Their management should be the sole responsibility of those people who financially support them. For clubs, A.A. managers are usually preferred. But hospitals, as well as other places of recuperation, ought to be well outside A.A. and medically supervised. While an A.A. group may cooperate with anyone, such cooperation ought never go so far as affiliation or endorsement, actual or implied. An A.A. group can bind itself to no one.
