Role and Fuction of Intergroup


Group Service Representatives (GSRs) from neighbouring groups within an area meet 4-6 (or more) times a year at the level of intergroup.

There are presently approximately 120 intergroups within the GB service structure.

As well as a chairman, vice chairman, treasurer and secretary each intergroup appoints a number of liaison officers who have a particular sphere of external service activity: public information, employment, prisons, health, probation, telephone (helpline), armed services and electronic communications (AA website and on-line response). Other liaison officers deal with internal AA matters including literature, AA periodicals (SHARE and Roundabout magazines) and archives.

Intergroups are able to coordinate resources and fund initiatives within their areas and to connect and consult with each other at regional level.
