A quote from our co-founder Bill W on General Service in AA:
“An AA service is anything whatever that helps us reach a fellow sufferer – ranging all the way from the Twelfth Step itself to a ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee, and to AA’s General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services is our Third Legacy of Service.” (Pass It On, page 347)

 

The following Intergroup service positions are currently available:

If you are interested in any one of the vacancies, speak to your homegroup GSR or attend a SMIG meeting to find out how you could be of service.
