Why Support Your Local Intergroup?

Memphis Area Intergroup is a committee of volunteers made up of representatives from A.A. groups all over the greater Memphis area. Intergroup encourages mutual support and cooperation between local A.A. Groups.  It provides services for these groups that would be too much for the individual groups to handle by themselves.  Some of these services are:

  • Distribution of literature
  • Updating meeting information on our website
  • A.A. Phone Watch
  • Liaison among A.A. Groups
  • Information center for the general public
  • Support service committees such as:
    • Archives
    • Grapevine
    • Cooperation with the Professional Community/Public Information
    • Treatment Facilities
    • Correctional Facilities
    • Accessibilities
  • Sponsor special events for all groups, such as Founders Day and Gratitude Dinners.

Who needs Intergroup and who supports it?

We all do! Intergroup uses donations contributed by groups in the area to carry on the normal functions previously described. Your group support is needed to make sure that Intergroup can give us and the community the services we need. “When anyone anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that I am responsible.”

Memphis Area Intergroup Representatives meets the second Sunday of every month at 1:00 p.m.  This is a hybrid meeting located at Leawood Baptist Church, 3638 Macon Road, Memphis, TN  38122, and on Zoom:  https://us06web.zoom.us/s/83597502608, PW 76237

“Public Information takes many forms – the simple sign outside a meeting place that says ‘A.A. meeting tonight’; listing in local phone directories; distribution of A.A. literature; and radio and television shows using sophisticated media techniques. Whatever the form, it comes down to ‘one drunk carrying the message to another drunk,’ whether through personal contact or through the use of third parties and the media.” – Bill W.
