About Us...

Who we are:

is a body made up of representatives from all AA groups in the area (Area 31). It has met on a monthly basis since it was established in 1953.  Each AA group elects, annually, one of its members (one year of sobriety recommended) to serve as its representative on this important committee, and, an alternate to regularly attend its meetings (one year of sobriety recommended). Its main responsibilities are to:

  1. Coordinate AA activities among its various groups and to help weaker groups in anyway possible.
  2. Maintain 24 hour AA telephone coverage.
  3. Publish regularly updated schedules of group meetings in the area.
  4. Provide a program which will promote regular visits between groups.
  5. Provide an inventory of AA Literature for the convenience of local groups and committees in an office which also serves as a communication and information center. 
  6. And, to act upon any suggestions by any group, through its representatives, that would be of potential benefit to our area.                                                                                                                                                     

Conclusion: At no time is Western Mass Intergroup in running the affairs of AA member groups.
