Introduction to Intergroup Service
The groups are the powerhouse of Alcoholics Anonymous, and all related service
committees, boards and officers exist primarily to serve them. Thus, the aim of
Intergroup is to support the groups in the common purpose of carrying the AA
message to the still suffering alcoholic and, by using their combined strength and
unity, to develop and maintain good relations with all organisations in the community.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in pursuing this rewarding aspect of
recovery, then you are invited to come along to any Intergroup meeting, held on the
second Monday of odd numbered months to ask questions and learn more. All
meetings are held at Response Community Project, 300 Old Brompton Rd., London SW5 9JF, from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. Your groups GSR
can help you with details and questions or put you in touch with a Service Committee
The process of securing a Service Committee post starts by you asking your Group
to nominate/sponsor you for the position in which you are interested, letting your
GSR or a Service Committee member know of your interest and nomination, and
coming along to the next full GSR Intergroup meeting, where you will be asked to
give a brief verbal summary of your SERVICE CV before a vote is taken.
If you simply wish to come along to see how intergroup works you are very welcome
to do so. Make sure to introduce yourself to the chair or secretary before the
intergroup meeting starts so we can make you feel welcome, and we will
be very happy to answer any questions you may have.
