The South Eastern Massachusetts Roundup theme EXPECT MIRACLES is exactly that.

I must say the blizzard of 2015 did not stop the Miracles from happening here at SEMRU.

The workshops, meetings, speakers and entertainment were a great way to settle in for a cozy weekend of fellowship, fun and food.

Mark J from Snellville, GA our very own treasurer of GaL-AA gave a great open-talk on Saturday night – Thank you Mark

GaL-AA held a workshop on Saturday afternoon called GaL-AA 411 where you could learn about how to participate in GaL-AA on a committee or as a volunteer at the 2015 Internationale convention.

We signed up about 25 new members and 6 new volunteers.

We would like to thanks the SEMRU committee for hosting our GaL-AA  committee again this year.



The GaL-AA committee is meeting this weekend at the South Eastern Massachusetts Roundup.

Items on the agenda are: 2015 International convention, outreach to AA groups and roundups, jails and institutions, outreach to Gays and Lesbians in Gay AA literature. These are just a few of the items we are discussing and working as we move forward in service to Alcoholics.

More to come

Thanks to all of you who voted in this year’s election — it was the biggest turnout in GaL-AA’s history!

Congratulations to those who won and to the entire 2015 Executive Board:

The GaL-AA Executive Committee met in Atlanta, GA to continue plans for the 2015 International AA Convention. We hosted a meet and greet with the 2015 GaL-AA Atlanta International Convention Committee who have been working tirelessly to plan our GaL-AA hospitality room and dance during the event.

Additionally, we are designing and developing new features and enhancements to our website and online meeting database system to make it more user friendly. We also revised the organization’s by-laws to better meet our needs and primary purpose going forward.

Come join the 2015 GaL-AA Atlanta team as we host visitors from all over the world to celebrate recovery at the Westin Peachtree Plaza, during the AA International Convention, in vibrant downtown Atlanta. There will be a fabulous dance party on Friday night. Step into the transformed, modern/Chic dance club with “get your booty shaking tunes”. And, expect a few surprises. Then, chill-out in our Hospitality Suite open all weekend. Grab a cup of “joe”, relax and chat with friends new and old. And, if you want to be more involved, there are plenty of volunteer service positions. Check out the link on this page. Or, visit us at for more information. We are looking forward to meeting you in 2015!
