. SUGGESTED RESPONSIBILITIES FOR INTERGROUP REPS

  • Attend monthly meetings which are held the second Thursday of every month, except August, at 8pm.  The meetings are held in the McIver Chapel of the Wilshire Baptist Church at 4316 Abrams Rd.  The Office is open from 6:30-7:15 p.m. for literature pickups.  For large orders please call ahead to avoid a jam.
  • Make monthly reports based on Intergroup Meeting information to your home group.
  • Inform the Intergroup office of any changes in your group’s meeting times, types, group location, phone number, any changes.  If you see an error in your listing please call and let us know.  We can change information on the website daily, but the printed schedules only come out 3-4 times a year.  We can only be as accurate as the information you give us.  We depend on you to help us out.  If you visit a group other than your home group and find that group does not appear to be active please inform us of that as well.
  • Urge home group participation in any Intergroup sponsored event or function such as the Chili Cook-off and Anniversary Celebration.
  • Help the Intergroup maintain an accurate and up to date 12th Step List from your home group.  The Intergroup gets speakers for groups and events as well as workshops so a good supply of speakers, step speakers and other volunteers for group activities is very important.  When someone calls for help it is great to have a list of volunteers from the many different areas we serve.
  • Ask your home group to make financial contributions to the Intergroup using GSO guidelines.
  • Advise your alternate Intergroup Rep of all Intergroup activities so that home group participation will not be interrupted.
  • Suggest to other groups that they elect a willing, active member to serve as their Intergroup Rep and have a voice in monthly meetings.
  • Keep Intergroup informed of any special event at your home group.  We will post the event on our events page on the website and on the bulletin board in the office.
  • Sign up for the EBlast, for Intergroup Reps, to get the latest information.  We have to have your current email to add you to the list.
  • Inform your group about Intergroup and the services we provide all groups, including the Speaker Bureau, Nightwatch, Workshop Assistance, Mediators for Group Inventory, 12th Step calls, and much more.  We are always looking for members with some extra time to volunteer at the office.
  • Inform your group about available literature.
  • Urge your group to take Nightwatch for a weekend.
  • Urge members to visit the office and see what the Dallas Central Office/Intergroup does in person.
  • Members of our Board of Trustees are happy to visit your group and answer any questions your members might have about Intergoup.

Bill W stated that “The Intergroup Association is the best insurance we can have that the life lines to the hundreds of thousands yet to come will never break or tangle.  Let us always be generous.  Let us always support the Intergroup.”
