Recording attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings has several benefits, including tracking progress, strengthening commitment, and fulfilling court-ordered requirements. To help keep AA meeting records organized and easily accessible for review, we offer an AA Attendance Sheet template with three different forms that each meet common legal obligations.
Feature of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings template :
- Group Name Signature: This form includes the Group Name, Date, Time, and Group Leader’s Signature.
- Date Location: This is a more generalized AA attendance sheet that includes the Date, Location, Name, and Phone Number.
- Date Location Signature: A simple three-column attendance sheet with the Date, Location, and Authorized Counselor Signature.
Understanding the legal requirement
Before using the template, it is important to first understand any specific legal requirements you may have, such as those from a court officer or parole officer. Additionally, some AA groups may not agree to sign attendance sheets, so it is important to find a group that is willing to do so. The templates are designed to meet general legal obligations, but may need to be modified to fit your specific needs.
Once you have chosen the appropriate form for your needs, you can print out the attendance sheet and fill it in by hand at meetings, especially if an authorized signature is required. Each worksheet is already formatted to fit on one page. You can also add new columns to the attendance sheet as needed by right-clicking on the column to the right of where you want to insert a new one and selecting “Insert” from the pop-up menu. If you need to track attendance for multiple months, you can create a new worksheet for each month by duplicating the previous one, which will also allow you to create a historical record of past attendance sheets. Finally, you can use the “Freeze Panes” option to keep the column headings visible even when you scroll down the sheet.
