Check Out Intergroup’s 2023 Annual Report

San Francisco and Marin Intergroup’s Annual Report is one of the best ways to see all the important 12th Step work Intergroup does every day. It also contains many interesting facts— such as the number of visitors to our website—the top selling AAGrapevine items in our bookstore and all the meetings that made contributions last year. There’s a lot of great information. Take a moment to read through the report and be sure to share it with your groups!

Coastal Hike Event

The Marin Fellowship Committee is organizing a “Trudging the Road of Happy Destiny” coastal hike. Scheduled for April 20 @ 9:30am, participants will gather at the north end of Rodeo Beach, in Sausalito. Following the A.A. meeting, attendees will embark on a hike along the coastal trails. Friends, family members and dogs are all welcome to join the excursion.

HelpChat Orientation

Have you wondered who is on the other side of the blue “Need Help?” chat bubble on our website? It’s A.A. volunteers! And, you can be one of them.
