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 first Sunday of every month at Christ United Methodist Church 4488 Poplar Ave in the Wilson Ross Bldg in room 415/416. The meeting begins promptly at 1:00 pm
“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.
