Statement of Anonymity:

There may be some here who may not be familiar with our tradition of anonymity. Anonymity is the guardian of all our traditions. Experience tells us that personal anonymity before the public is just as vital to the life of AA as sobriety is to the life of each member. Our name, Alcoholics Anonymous, assures you that your anonymity will be respected. In return, we ask that any names and stories that you hear this weekend be kept in confidence when you leave this hall. Whom you see here, What you hear here, please let it stay here.
