Intergroup Workshop - AA Service Structure

 

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.
