Thank you all from the Staff and Volunteers of the Dallas Central Office.
The newest Grapevine title has just arrived. “Forming True Partnerships: How AA Members Use the Program to Improve Relationships” is a new collection of stories that show the ways members use our 12 Steps, sponsorship and the other tools of the program to improve and repair relationships. The book covers a wide range of experiences and is another great addition to the collection of Grapevine titles. Chapters include, Family, Marriage/Divorce, On the Job, Dating/Romance, Friendships, Pets/Animals and Sponsorship. Be the first in your group to read it!! ($10).
The Central Office will be closed Monday, Sept. 7th for Labor Day. Have a save and sober holiday!

The Dallas Central Office/Intergroup Association needs dependable office volunteers. If you are looking for service work and a way to give back to Alcoholics Anonymous we can provide that! When answering the phones for us, you are a representative of not only the Dallas Central Office/Intergroup Association, but often the first contact a newcomer has with our membership. We need volunteers with at least one year of continuous sobriety and a working knowledge of the 12 Traditions. (We always have plenty of opportunities for volunteers with less sobriety). We have two shifts a day: 10am to 1pm or 1pm to 5pm. We are also open on the second and third Saturdays of every month from 10-2pm. We could use back up help for Saturdays.
The Dallas Central Office is a business office and not an AA Group which seems to confuse some members. We do have a dress code of sorts because we are the public face of A.A., and because we deal with some heavy cases of books which is why we do not allow open toe shoes for example. You do not have to wear a dress or shirt and tie to do service work with us and we promise you fellowship, service and a close up look at our unity. We believe in having fun and you will have plenty of that in this office. We also provide candy!
We desperately need volunteers willing to commit to at least 6 month and preferably more. The majority of our volunteers have been here for years. It is not beneficial for us to spend the time training a volunteer on our POS system, inventory, how to answer the phones, filling orders, handling 12th Step calls, stocking, etc., if a volunteer only wants to show up occasionally or when convenient. If anyone has some time to give back to A.A. we would love to have you join our crew. We want to have more old-timers and no one need worry about computers or heavy lifting. Visitors to the office love to talk to members with long-term sobriety, and we would love to have you.
If you are interested in volunteering with us just email email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office during business hours: 214-887-6699. Don’t miss out on what may be the best service opportunity in Dallas!
