Starting A Meeting

HOW TO START A MEETING

Underearners Anonymous (UA) is a growing fellowship and UA-UK Intergroup is here to support you start a new meeting.

To start…

  • A meeting could begin perhaps with just two members for 30 minutes and grow to be longer once you have attracted more members.
  • Listen out for other people interested in starting a meeting even if it is just one other.
  • A good place to start for finding a new venue is to research meetings listed on other 12 Step fellowship websites.
  • Find a venue with a room available at the same time every week with affordable rent.
  • Meetings change and evolve to best serve newcomers and regular fellows.
  • Successful meetings historically build a strong committee, are close to transport links and are in venues used by other 12 Step fellowships.
  • Create a simple flyer that advertises the meeting and place in other meeting venues, libraries, free notice boards and Citizen Advice Bureau if possible.

How UA-UK Intergroup can support…
