Why is our Group not listed in the Meeting Finder?
If a Pink Form has been received,
then your group should be listed. A missing or wrong postcode can lead to
someone thinking that the meeting does not appear. For example:

Where can we find our
Group Registration Number?
When we fill in a Pink Form, we are asked for a Group

staff when calling up Group Records.
- It is printed on envelopes sent from GSO to
Groups e.g. mailings of AA Service News
- It can be found on an Intergroup's microsite.
Every intergroup has such a microsite, and within it is a page "Download
Meetings List in PDF Format". On this list, the Group's Number (also known
as a 'UID') can be found.
