Welcome to the "Where is AA?" blog. This blog is in support of the site whereisaa.org. This site was born out of my frustration that there wasn't a good online place to see all the meetings in LA on a map. In particular I live between three central offices so the information for meetings around me are in three different websites/directories. So I've pulled the meeting information from most of the central offices in LA and put them on a map. I also pulled the details for all the central offices in the US and put them on the map as well (green icons).
The site is currently a work in progress. I have automated the process and will refresh the meeting information regularly. I pull the data from the central office's websites so it is only as good as they publish. If you see wrong information then make a request for the central office to fix it. I see no value in duplicating their work.
I have a bunch of ideas to make this site better. But right now I'm keeping it simple. I'm focusing on making sure the information is correct, current and easy to get to. The site works best on a computer but works well enough on a smartphone. At some point I'll optimize it for a smartphone as I expect that is how most will want to use it.
I'm glad you made it here and hope you find the site useful. Please leave any comments/questions you have in the comments.
