The AA Preamble
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.

|AA Guidelines from G.S.O.|
Reading Intergroup is the active
12-step service arm of the Districts that it serves. Intergroup is often where
the alcoholic in need first calls for help. Although Intergroups operate
independently of A.A.'s worldwide service structure, it is a vital part of the
local Fellowship. Intergroup is supported by the voluntary contributions of
local AA Groups.
When these failed to meet the needs of the
simple and inexpensive setup, they often went into their own pockets. If the
newly hired secretary happened to be an A.A. member, this was a sure-fire cause
for trouble. The often-frightened little gal soon learned that she was
considered a "professional A.A.," making money out of it. Of course
this was unfounded because primarily she was doing a secretarial job. Over the
years the areas learned the same lessons the groups did. They found what was
necessary to make an A.A. area function, and what was not. Out of this long
travail and struggle, A.A.'s present Intergroup or area Central Offices have
emerged. In scores of cities they are doing a vitally necessary job."
