What is an Intergroup Representative Responsible For?
The Intergroup representative is responsible to vote for their group’s conscience at Intergroup Meetings. Similar to an AA Group business meeting, the Intergroup meeting is the monthly AA business meeting covering the affairs of AA in the Vancouver and Lower Mainland area of British Columbia (Intergroup Area). The Group conscience is made up of elected Intergroup Representatives from their groups.
The Intergroup representative tries to keep their group well informed about what is happening in the local groups, the various outreach sub committees and the office. The Intergroup representative is responsible for participating in Intergroup meetings with other such representatives monthly to share the experience in carrying the AA message through the services provided by GVIS Intergroup.
How do I become an Intergroup representative?
An Intergroup representative is usually voted in at the home group. If your home group does not have an Intergroup Rep, you could suggest at your next group conscience that someone be elected to the position.
They voted for me to serve the group as Intergroup representative, now what do I do?
It is suggested that the Intergroup Representative attend the monthly meeting on the third Tuesday of the month (7:30 pm) at 3022 E. 49th – see map below. Prior to each monthly Intergroup Meeting is an Orientation for new Intergroup Reps (7 pm) or any AA member wishing to know more about Intergroup. We look forward to seeing you there!
