What Does Membership Include?
Membership at Lambda
Lambda Phoenix Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership-based organization; however, membership is not required to attend meetings at Lambda Phoenix Center.
Who is eligible for Lambda membership? Anyone who has been a member of a twelve step fellowship for 30 days is eligible to be a member of Lambda Phoenix Center. There is no requirement of continuous recovery, sobriety, or clean time to be a member of Lambda Phoenix Center. Likewise, membership is open to anyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. If you wish to contribute to Lambda Phoenix Center but are not a member of a twelve step fellowship, please visit our donations page.
Why join Lambda Phoenix Center? Membership in Lambda Phoenix Center is a personal commitment to ensuring the Center continues to be available to those in the metro Phoenix LGBT community recovering from alcoholism and other addictions. It is a means of carrying a message of hope and recovery to the suffering newcomer. It is an expression of our gratitude that we were able to find a safe and welcoming place to recover without risk of judgment or ridicule. It represents an end to isolation and the experience of being a part of something greater than ourselves.
Members of Lambda Phoenix Center have the right to participate in the operation of the organization by voting. Members elect a Board of Directors at an annual meeting held at the Center on the second Sunday in September. Members with two years of continuous recovery are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors. As an expression of gratitude, all members receive a personalized Lambda Phoenix Center coffee mug for use at the Center for the duration of their membership.
