The chit (confirmation of attendance) system is a scheme providing members with proof of attendance at a particular AA meeting, (issued by a group officer). These can be given by the member to any agency (probation officers/offender managers, social services, health, employment, professional disciplinary bodies, courts/legal representatives or any other body) requesting proof of attendance, showing commitment to recovery.
Initially endorsed by the 1987 AA General Service Conference in co-operation with Probationary Services, the chit system was extended at the 2017 General Service Conference to include any other agency requiring confirmation of attendance. As the member voluntarily “self-reports” their attendance, group anonymity is preserved. Chits only confirm attendance and do not verify sobriety.
