Gratitude Week

Gratitude Week (or Sobriety Week as it was first known): the idea is to hold a separate collection in groups on or around the week of 10th June each year.

Groups wishing to make a Gratitude Week donation via Intergroup can do so: please transfer the money to Intergroup in the usual way.

Please let Steve (Treasurer) know you have made a Gratitude Week donation, and how much you have collected, via email: email hidden; JavaScript is required

The Treasurer will send all Gratitude Week donations received to York directly.

Please ensure you transfer any Gratitude Week collections before the end of August – monies must go to York by September.

What are Intergroup Meetings?

This is an AA business meeting where representatives of Edinburgh and Midlothian AA groups meet with the InterGroup (IG) Officers on a monthly basis, in order to discuss AA business in support of AA groups within the IG district.

As stated in the AA GB Handbook at page 87: “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 maintain good relations with all organisations in the community.”

Each AA group is encouraged to send a nominated Group Service Representative (GSR) to the meetings. Members of AA are welcome to attend the meeting in an observer capacity.

AA Edinburgh and Midlothian is committed to providing safe venues for our meetings. We encourage group members to help keep AA safe by taking sensible precautions, both with personal belongings and by being mindful about giving out personal information.
