Statement of Purpose
The purpose of the Foothills Hospitals and Institutions Committee is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to persons residing in any facility, government or private, where there are alcoholics. All AA panel meetings of this Committee are conducted at the invitation of each facility.
The Committee is created under the ninth tradition of AA, which states that “AA as such ought never be organized, but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve”. The Committee operates under the Twelve Traditions of AA in all of its affairs, ever mindful of the admonition “cooperation, not affiliation”. The Committee is not a thing apart from AA, but complements its existing services.
The Committee guarantees continuity of the AA panels. No individual can make this possible — only the coordinating continuity of a Committee can do so.
