What is Area 50?

Area 50 is Western New York’s connection to the general service structure of Alcoholics Anonymous. It’s how local groups participate in decision-making for AA as a whole and help carry AA’s message. The Area 50 Web Site is an online Public Information presence for the Area Assembly. Our desire is to provide accurate information about A.A. and the business of the Assembly; to foster the participation of members, groups and committees in service, and events sponsored in Area 50.
