The only purpose of the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who is confined. The activities of this committee are governed by the Twelve Traditions and based on spiritual principles embodied within the Twelve Concepts of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Steering Committee executes the operations of the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee. The Steering Committee meets three times a year, on the second Saturday of January, May and September, one month prior to the General Committee meeting, to report on the status of all committees, to discuss handling of procedural issues and to discuss and vote on issues to be brought to the General Committee. Steering Committee members may be contacted directly
The General Committee is the final decision-making body of the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee and is comprised of the members of all the local area committees. All decisions of the General Committee represent the collective Group Conscience of the A.A. Groups and the H&I volunteers in Northern California. The General Committee meets three times a year to inform the Fellowship of our activities, to review issues and concerns from the areas, and to make decisions for the committee. The General Committee elects the General Chair and the Finance Committee members and approves the Steering Committee nominations provided by the General Chair.
