“Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio and films.”
Thus, we respectfully ask that A.A. speakers and A.A. members not be photographed, videotaped, or identified by full name on audio tapes and in the published or broadcast reports of our meetings, including those reports on the Internet.
The assurance of anonymity is essential in our efforts to help other problem drinkers who may wish to share our recovery program with us. And, our Tradition of anonymity reminds us that “A.A. principles come before personalities.”
A further note about anonymity: Out of respect for others, please do not take photographs or videos during any of the meetings at the Woman To Woman Retreat. Also, be considerate when taking photographs around retreat venues. Take care that you do not capture images of A.A. members, family members and friends who did not give permission and may not wish to appear in your pictures. Even if you have permission to take photos or videos, our Traditions guide us not to post any content that identifies A.A. members as such on websites accessible to the public, or to share it on publicly accessible social media or social networking platforms, apps or websites.
“Our relations with the general public should be characterized by personal anonymity. We think A.A. ought to avoid sensational advertising. Our names and pictures as A.A. members ought not be broadcast, filmed, or publicly printed. Our public relations should be guided by the principle of attraction rather than promotion. There is never need to praise ourselves. We feel it better to let our friends recommend us.”
