What Is A Central Office?

A Central Office (or Intergroup) is an A.A. service office that involves partnership among groups in a community – just as A.A. groups themselves are partnerships of individuals. It is established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups – functions, which are best, handled by a centralized office – and it is usually maintained, supervised, and supported by these groups in their general interest. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.

Central Office Statement of Purpose:

The purpose of the Central Office is to receive, distribute, follow up on 12 step calls, to answer inquires about A.A., & to cooperate with local public information committees. Central Office also maintains information about local hospitals, & recovery facilities for alcoholics. We provide local meeting lists, a newsletter, & order, sell, & distribute A.A. literature.
