The following are the committees that function within the Intergroup. Listed are the names of each committee with a description of their responsibilities. If you are interested in participating in one of these committees or for more information, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessibility Committee – The Accessibility Committee assists the Intergroup, A.A. groups, and individuals in carrying the message of recovery to those with special needs, such as the blind, the deaf and the physically disabled.
Q: What is the Accessibility Committee? This is the committee formerly known as “Special Needs.”
Q: What does this committee do? This committee helps get meetings to those folks who cannot get out to meetings. The most common need is among fellow AA’s who are in a nursing home, hospital, or homebound; due to illness or disability. Some of these needs are temporary and some are long-term.
Q: What experience do I need? None! Just a willingness to carry the message to your fellow alcoholics. It is recommended that you have 6 months of sobriety.
Q: Why should I do this? Because giving back what was so freely given to you is HOW IT WORKS, service work keeps us sober, helping others is awesome, and if not you, who?
Q: I want to help! What should I do now? Grab some friends and call Alan H. at 585-441-4415.
