We Are Responsible...

When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, we want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: we are responsible.

Portland Area Intergroup provides a number of vital services to the AA community, thanks to the work of AA member committees, service boards and Integroup representatives.

Intergroup Committees

Bridging The Gap

…between those leaving treatment and the rooms of AA. Help newcomers find their way to meetings & feel more connected when they get there.

 

Correction Facilities

Take meetings into correctional facilities & carries the AA message to the alcoholic who suffers. MCSO Volunteer application required.

Annual Picnic Committee

For more than 65 years, Portland AA’s have been getting together for an annual picnic – but it wouldn’t happen without dedicated volunteers.

w

Cooperation with the Professional Community

Keeping the professional community that works with alcoholics, such as medical & treatment professionals, clergy, lawyers, educators & law enforcement, informed about AA.

 

z

Public Information

Panels meet with the media, schools, clubs, and the general public and show videos (produced by the General Service Office), provide literature, contact information and answer questions about AA.

Intergroup Representatives

IGRs represent their A.A. group at the monthly meeting, and keep their group appraised on motions, activities and ongoing topics.

Cooperation with Treatment Facilities

Share your experience, strength, and hope with the alcoholic who still suffers by taking meeting into treatment facilities.

Hotline

Hotline volunteers are often first contact for AA, and keep the phones staffed 24-hours a day by taking calls from home.

Web & Digital Committee

Our committee aims to promote unity, service and recovery in the Portland metro area through accurate & easily accessible digital materials including the website and email distribution.

A.A.’s Legacy of Service

by Bill W. (1951)

Our Twelfth Step—carrying the message—is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives; this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society of alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.

Hence, an A.A. service is anything whatever that helps us to reach a fellow sufferer— ranging all the way from the Twelfth Step itself to a ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee, and to A.A.’s General Service Office for national and international action. The sum total of all these services is our Third Legacy of Service.

Services include meeting places, hospital cooperation, and intergroup offices; they mean pamphlets, books, and good publicity of almost every description. They call for com- mittees, delegates, trustees, and conferences. And, not to be forgotten, they need voluntary money contributions from within the Fellowship.
