What is Intergroup?

San Francisco and Marin Intergroup serves more than 900 A.A. groups in our common purpose of carrying the A.A. message of recovery to alcoholics. We provide important services for local 12th Step work, such as running Central Office, selling A.A. literature, publishing a local meeting directory and website and operating a 24-hour telephone hotline.

In addition, Intergroup connects the local Fellowship to service opportunities, informs the public and professional community about A.A. and acts as an information exchange for announcements and events.

Our History

San Francisco and Marin Intergroup has a long history in the San Francisco Bay Area. A plaque on a house on Potomac Street in San Francisco commemorates the first A.A. meeting in Northern California on November 21, 1939.

Beginning with individual A.A. members meeting informally and then in small groups, an unincorporated network arose in the 1940s, leading to the San Francisco Group of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Today, Intergroup is registered with the State of California and has non-profit status with the Franchise Tax Board and the Internal Revenue Service, as “Intercounty Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous”, more commonly known as San Francisco and Marin Intergroup.

Central Office

A central office (operated by Intergroup) carries out certain functions common to all groups, such as selling literature and chips, operating our website and providing information to our Fellowship and local community. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
