Intergroup

Alcoholics Anonymous is not organized in the formal or political sense. There are no governing officers, no rules or regulations and no dues or fees. The need for certain services for alcoholics (both within AA and those "still suffering" outside) has been apparent from the beginning of the Fellowship and it is these which form the basis for the service structure.

The aims of an Intergroup are to aid the constituent Groups in their common purpose of carrying the AA message to the still suffering alcoholic and, by using their combined strength and unity, to improve and maintain good relations with all organisations in the community.

Community

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.

SEA Intergroup Meetings

These are business meetings and should therefore be conducted in a business-like fashion having particular regard to the guidance in the Traditions and the Twelve Concepts. One meeting in the year should be set aside for the Annual General Meeting at which the year's accounts are reviewed and approved, and upon which date the rotation of officers should come into effect. A suitable agenda prepared by Intergroup officers should be sent to all Groups in good time so that the Group can discuss the subjects to be raised and make known their views to their GSR (General service rep). Observers are welcome at Intergroup meetings but may not vote and it is suggested may only express their views at the invitation of the Chairperson.
