What Is Intergroup? (brief)

Potteries & District Intergroup.

An Intergroup is a collection of AA groups, usually in a geographical area, that come together to provide a service structure to carry the AA message to the still suffering alcoholic more effectively. Intergroup Liaison Officers provide an essential link between the Fellowship and outside bodies such as hospitals, GPs, prison authorities, probation officers, schools and colleges, the media (press, radio, TV etc.). It also provides the vital link between AA groups and Region to the General Service Board and General Service Office in York. Intergroups are responsible for the running of their own telephone service either wholly or in part.

Put simply, an Intergroup co-ordinates the efforts of the participant groups in carrying the message to the still suffering alcoholic, maintains close contact with their local Region and from there to York.
