Group Services Committee

The Group Services Committee provides, as a service, the opportunity for any new group to register with General Service in New York, Intergroup and Central Office in Toledo, and Area 55 General Service. For the groups informational purpose, we will provide them with Group pamphlets and inform them of the Traditions which are guidelines to all groups.

Provides the District Committee Member (D.C.M.) with assistance for any group that wishes us to visit their group conscience meeting in trying to find a solution to any problem they might be having. Also, for any AA group within a district that does not have a D.C.M., we will act as a liaison between Area 55 and that group.

Makes available to all groups and committees the audio equipment, including a projector, for anniversaries as well as films or videos on Alcoholics Anonymous that might wish to be seen. Equipment is available on a first reservation, first reserved basis. (e.g., the group, district, etc. that contacts group services first for an event scheduled on a particular date will be provided equipment before a group that makes contact at a later time)
