Joining a Meeting

Browse the directory of online meetings: https://aa-intergroup.org/meetings/

Many of our local groups also have online meetings. You can find a meeting here.

  1. Click on the link provided by the meeting host. It will be in a format like this: https://zoom.us/4227565411 – The last nine numbers are the meeting numbers. This format is just an example.
  2. If this is your first time using Zoom, click on “download and run Zoom” (bottom right).
  3. Click “Open Zoom.us?” in the dialog box at the top.
  4. Click “Test speaker and microphone.”

If you’re asked to enter your name, type only your first name and last initial.

Managing the Control Functions—Muting, Video, and Chatting


Once in a Zoom meeting, turn on this toolbar by hovering your cursor at the bottom of your screen. There are just a few tools you will need.

On Desktop

Hover over the bottom of the screen with the mouse to turn it on.

On Mobile

Tap the top of the screen to turn it on.


Click Mute to turn on and off your microphone (it’s good practice to mute unless you are speaking). Always mute if there is background noise at your location.


If the secretary calls on you to speak, tap or click the Unmute button. If there is no Unmute button and you only see a Mute button, then everyone in the meeting can hear you.

Stop Video

Click “Stop Video” to turn off your camera.

Start Video

Click “Start Video” to turn it on.


Select Chat (or Participants and then Chats on mobile) to make comments to the group or to any of the individuals on the call. The chat window on the screen’s right shows all participants’ comments.


To Share: Select Manage Participants and tap on “Raise Hand” to share.

Leave Meeting

To Leave: Click “Leave Meeting.”
