What is a Central Office or Intergroup? "A central office (or intergroup) is an
A.A. service office that involves partnership among groups in a community - just
as A.A. groups themselves are partnerships of individuals. A central office is
established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups - functions
which are best handled by a centralized office - and it is usually maintained,
supervised, and supported by these groups in their general interest. It exists
to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the
alcoholic who still suffers." Reprinted from A.A. Guidelines, Central or
