There are two kinds of AA Meetings. Open Meetings and Closed Meetings. The essence of any AA meeting is to share with others our Experience, Strength and Hope.
"Both the Open and Closed meeting may adapt different formats. Most of the time it would be a sharing meeting, while at other times it could be a Topic Sharing, Topic Discussion, Literature Discussion or a Speaker Meeting. This format is usually decided by the Group members hosting the meeting."
