I was on the Board of the non-profit for the last year. I got on the board because of my knowledge of NPOs in the same field as Club Twelve is. However, shortly after doing this I realized that this organization thought they were Alcoholics Anonymous (which is in direct violation of AA's tradtions and principles). I found out that they use the name Alcoholics Anonymous to solicit donations. This NPO does rent space to 12-step groups such as AA, NA, MA, Al-anon, etc., but they legally can't solicit donations using the names of these organizations. However, they do. When I repeatedly told them about this I was told they are AA. However, I know after speaking with the AA state delegate and doing some research I found out I was completely correct: Club Twelve Inc, is not affiliated or allied in any way, shape, or form with AA. So if this organization tries to solicit donations using the AA name or AA lingo (such as alcothon) please do not donate.
