New doc from Intergroup…

Standard

This should be posted to the Northern California Intergroup site, but they do have delays; posting an advance copy.

Many of you have asked, “What is Intergroup?”

The “A.A. Guidelines for Central or Intergroup Offices” states that “A central office (or Intergroup) is an A.A. service office that involves partnerships among groups in a community—just as A.A groups themselves are partnerships of individuals.”

Our Intergroup Office was established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups—functions which are best handled by a centralized office—and is usually maintained, supervised, and supported by these groups in their general interest. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

A.A.’ s Tradition Five states: “Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.” Many groups do not have the resources to reach the alcoholic who still suffers that an Intergroup office does—with the support of groups. In order to accomplish this, Intergroup has a 24-hour hotline that handles calls 7 days per week and 365 days each year.

Our IG office handles approximately 15 twelve step calls, 60 calls for meeting information and 75 individuals visit the office for information, support, and A.A. literature (each month).
