TRI-COUNTY CENTER, INC.                                           
Our statement of purpose is to encourage sobriety and in general to carry out the ideas and objectives of Alcoholics Anonymous.

We are a clubhouse, which is a business that supports meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, but we are not AA.

Traditions Six, short form reads as, “An A.A. group ought never endorse, finance or lend the A.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary purpose”.

Tradition Six long form reads as “Problems of money, property and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. We think, therefore, that any considerable property of genuine use to A.A. should be separately incorporated and managed, thus dividing the material from the spiritual. An A.A. group, as such, should never go into business. Secondary aids to A.A., such as clubs or hospitals, which require much property or administration, ought to be incorporated and to set apart that, if necessary, they can be freely discarded by the groups…. Their management should be the sole responsibility of those who financially support it. For clubs, A.A. manager are usually preferred….While An A.A. group may cooperate with anyone, such cooperation ought never go so far as affiliation or endorsement, actual or implied. An A.A. group can bind itself to no one” (Page 563-564 Alcoholics Anonymous 4th Edition for full text)
