AA Meeting Sheet
Before you begin using the template, there are few things you should do first.
- If your attendance is court ordered, then check your court officer and make sure you understand any of your obligations and the requirements of your court order.
- If your attendance sheet needs to be signed, then be sure to find an AA meeting that agree to do. So, Some groups thinks that keeping attendance undermines the nature of their mission.
- It’s best to know whom requirements are coming from (parole officer, judge, case worker, or someone else).
- Finally, our templates are design to capture general legal obligations. However, you keep in mind that you may need to modify the attendance sheets provided to match your specific needs.
AA Meeting Sign In Sheet
Once your specific legal requirements are understandable, choose the AA attendance sheet that fits your requirements. It might be better to print out the attendance sheet and populate it by hand at meetings, especially if an authorized signature is mandatory. Each worksheet is already formatted to print on one of the page.
Use “Group Name Signature” worksheet if the Group Name and Group Leader’s Signature is also required. Thus, Enter name of the group(s) you are already scheduled to attend, as well as date and time. The group leader can also sign off next to each time slot.
At last, there is a space for defendant’s signature at the bottom of attendance sheet.
Moreover, The other two AA attendance sheets in this template focuses on your meeting location and date. Use “Date Location” sheet if contact phone number is required.
Use “Date Location Signature” sheet if an authorized counselor’s signature is required.
Add New Fields
As you will see, some worksheets in this template include fields that others usually don’t. You may also need to include these fields not found in any of the attendance sheets in this template.
Hence, To create any new column, just right-click on particular column to the right of where you’d like to insert a new column and select “Insert” from the pop up menu.
Finally, enter name of your new field in the empty column heading. Repeat these steps to add more fields to the attendance sheets.
New Sheets and Historical Records
If there are requirements to attend meetings for several months you may want to organize your attendance sheets month-wise. Thus, One way to do this is to create the new worksheet for each month by just duplicating the previous worksheet. So, This method will also allow you to create the historical records of previous attendance sheets. Finally, delete all old attendance records from previous sheet and start over.
Moreover, If you are managing your AA attendance sheet in Excel, your column headings will disappear once you scroll down your 19th meeting. To avoid these issues, use the “Freeze Panes” option to keep your column headings visible no matter how far down your scroll.
