When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible. – A.A. Responsibility Statement

What is an Intergroup Representative (IGR)?

As an IGR, you are the connection between the members of your group and Intergroup. You have the opportunity to keep your group up-to-date with local information and to let them know about available service opportunities.

When there are issues affecting Intergroup as a whole, you should discuss them with your group and get a group conscience. If members of your group have a suggestion or concern, you can discuss it with individual IGRs or suggest it as an Intergroup agenda item.

We encourage each IGR/member group to arrange for an Alternate (Alt-IGR) to represent your group if you cannot make one of the meetings.

How Do I Become an IGR?

All A.A. groups that hold regularly scheduled meetings in San Francisco or Marin and are listed in the meeting schedule (either print or electronic) are eligible to elect an Intergroup Representative.

Most groups elect an IGR and an Alternate IGR (Alt-IGR) in July, to serve a two-year term. It is suggested that all representatives have one year or more continuous sobriety. IGRs may only represent one A.A. group at a time.

IGRs and Alt-IGRs start their term by attending the IGR orientation meeting, which is held directly before the monthly Intergroup business meeting. Additionally, IGRs and Alt-IGRs need to register their commitment on aasfmarin.org to ensure they receive important communications.

To register as an IGR, go to Find A Meeting and search for your meeting’s listing. Click on the meeting name, scroll to the bottom of the page, click the Update Meeting Info link and follow the prompts. You will be contacted once your submission is processed.

Monthly Intergroup Meetings

Intergroup meetings are the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm unless it falls on a holiday. Currently, the monthly Intergroup meetings are held online. Intergroup agendas, minutes, and reports are posted on the aasfmarin.org website.
