IN A.A. YOU NEVER HAVE TO BE ALONE
Estimates of A.A. Groups and Members
Because A.A. has never attempted to keep formal membership lists, it is extremely difficult to obtain completely accurate figures on total membership at any given time. Some local groups are not listed with the U.S./Canada General Service Office. Others do not provide membership data, thus are not recorded on the G.S.O. computer records. The membership figures listed below are based on reports to the General Service Office as of January 1, 2011, plus an average allowance for groups that have not reported their membership.
There is no practical way of counting members who are not affiliated with a local group.

INTERNATIONALISTS (SEAGOING A.A.s)
Approximately three A.A. groups meet aboard naval or merchant marine ships on sea duty. They are known as "A.A. Internationalists." General Service Office staff members correspond with these members and make it possible for them to correspond with each other. Internationalists have been responsible for starting and encouraging local A.A. groups in many ports.
Some 105 men and women living in isolated areas throughout the world (or in areas where it has not been possible to form a local group) are listed at the General Service Office as Lone Members. Many achieved sobriety solely through study of A.A. literature. They correspond with G.S.O. and with their counterparts in other sections of the world. In a number of cases, notably U.S. military installations overseas, Loners have been responsible for establishing local groups.
