Become an Intergroup Representative so that your group can have the voice it deserves in operating Intergroup. The Representative typically serves a one year term and their service commitment includes attending the monthly Intergroup meeting, which is held the second Wednesday of each month. In addition, the Representative communicates information and concerns between Intergroup and their group.

Example of service opportunities at Intergroup: Phone Volunteer and Birthday Club.

Institutions Committee Mission & Service

The Institutions Committee is responsible for carrying the A.A. message to persons unable to attend regular A.A. meetings.. Currently meetings are held in correctional facilities, treatment centers, adolescent facilities, homeless shelters, detox facilities, mental health facilities, half-way houses and community court facilities. In total, over 350 meetings a month are conducted by the Institutions committee.

The requirement for joining the Institutions Committee is a minimum of six months of continuous sobriety. Volunteers are given a brief orientation and asked to speak with a current member of the committee at 2 meetings prior to accepting a commitment.

The Institutions Committee provides soft cover Big Books to clients in facilities. These books are purchased by the committee. The Big Book Ball is held once a year as a fundraiser for the committee. Also pink cans are distributed among groups to encourage donations. Due to the increasing need for meetings and the rising cost of books, the need for donations is also growing.

Institutions Committee General Meeting is held on the first Sunday of each month at the Triangle Club. New members should attend the Mandatory Orientation meeting at 4:30 p.m. in the Serenity Room. The general meeting is held on the same day at 5:00 p.m. in the big room.

God, grant me the
Serenity to accept the
things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference

 


I Am Responsible... When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.
