The Hospital and Treatment Facilities (HTF) Committee
The Hospital and Treatment Facilities Committee (HTF) leads and coordinates the work of AA members and groups in carrying the message to those in hospital and treatment facility programs. Examples of our 12-step work include chairing a meeting at a detox center, coordinating AA meetings at a treatment center, and working with hospital staff to organize an AA meeting.
The membership of this Committee is composed of one delegate from each of the districts of Area 19. Delegates shall serve for a period of two years commencing January 1 of the odd year. Membership on this committee is open to any interested AA member. New members are always welcome to attend the meeting of the HTF Committee on the first Monday of each month.
There is no sobriety requirement to participate in committee activities (e.g. monthly business meetings, support work, trainings). There is a one-year minimum sobriety requirement to serve as a district representative on the Committee or to hold most other positions. In addition, special sobriety requirements may be set by the treatment facility.
