Description of the “American River Alano”

Who we are and what we do.

The American River Alano is an outside organization, separate and distinct from any 12 Step Group or treatment facility.  We are not a club, and membership is not required to attend meetings.  The meeting facility is primarily supported by membership.  Each meeting held at the Alano is conducted by an autonomous group.  Each group pays rent to the Alano to help with expenses. Rent contributes just more than half of the Alano’s needs. The remainder must come from membership or outside donations.  Membership in the American River Alano is independent of membership in any of the various organizations that use the facilities for their meetings.

Membership is voluntary and open to all. Members include anyone who supports the objectives of the Alano. Dues are $100 per year.  The Alano is a non-profit organization and is governed by a Board of volunteer directors elected from the current enrolled members.

The purpose of this nonprofit corporation is to lease and/or purchase real property for the sole purpose of supporting nonprofit 12 Step groups. Some examples include:

  • Self-support through contributions
  • Assure a meeting place will be available.
  • Smaller 12 step groups allowing more personal levels of recovery.
  • Help keep the doors open for the next recovering person.
  • Carry the message of recovery.
