Intergroup Organization

Like all other Intergroups, Glasgow South carries the A.A. message into the
wider community and acts as the interface and communication channel
between the A.A. Groups in our area and the Glasgow Region Committee.
This in turn represents our interests within the overall U.K. service structure
of the Fellowship.

To perform its role, the South Intergroup has a committee elected from Group
members comprising :- Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Liaison
Officers/ Office Bearers covering the following areas :-
Public Information, Prisons, Health, Social Services, Telephone Service,
Electronic Communications, A.A.Literature, Roundabout (A.A.Magazine)
and Archives.

There are therefore over a dozen important Service jobs available in the
Intergroup. Most people who have been involved in Service in A.A. find that
it greatly helps their recovery and provides a practical way of putting
something back into the Fellowship.

Therefore we would encourage Groups to participate in the work of the
Intergroup by appointing a Group Service Representative to act for them at
our Bi -monthly meetings. In addition any member who would like to know
more about what we do or join one of our Service Committees should come
along and see for themselves.

Glasgow South Intergroup meets bi-monthly in the first week of February,
April, June, August, October and December in Langside Halls, Langside
Avenue, Shawlands.

History of the South Intergroup

Over 80 A.A. Meetings weekly south of the Clyde

The South Intergroup came about in 1993 by the Glasgow Region of A. A.
asking a committee to look at restructuring the Region from Eight (8)
Intergroups to the present Four (4), because, positions within Intergroups
were becoming difficult to fill, and our ability to carry the A.A. Message
was shrinking. It was decided to look at ways of restructuring which would
best save the strength of the Message within the Glasgow Intergroups.

At that time there were two (2) Intergroups operating within the South Side
of Glasgow. They were the Glasgow South West Intergroup which held
their meetings bi-monthly in the office staff canteen of the U.C.S Shipyard
Govan Road; and the Glasgow South East Intergroup which held their
meetings bi-monthly in Langside Halls.

A meeting was held in the Pearce Institute by the Steering Committee and
both Intergroups on 15th April 1993. A unanimous decision was taken to
amalgamate both Intergroups and in May 1993 it was agreed that the new
Glasgow South Intergroup would be formed.

The first meeting of the South Intergroup was held in Langside Halls on
Tuesday the 1St June 1993 and it now comprises over 70 A.A. groups holding
meetings every day of the week.





Summary of Minutes of the Most Recent Meeting.

This page provides a brief summary of the Minutes of the most recent Intergroup
meeting and gives an outline of the main business conducted.

Copies of the full Minutes are forwarded to all office bearers and Liaison Officers
in the Intergroup and a copy is sent to the Secretary or Group Service Representative
of every Group in the Glasgow South area.

The full Minutes should be available in your Group a week or two after each Intergroup meeting.
See your Group Secretary or Service Representative.



A member from Pollok just for today Tue night group asked for it to be documented
that he was told by the group that they could not attend Intergroup
as they did not contribute any money.
It was agreed that we need to try and challenge and eradicate this myth. All groups are welcome to Glasgow South Intergroup whether they donate money or not and we encourage people into service and it not all about money.


Umbrella Project

“Umbrella Project”
Request for Volunteers
A.A. Needs Your Help

Glasgow South Intergroup is launching a new initiative this year
aimed at “Carrying the Message” more effectively of what AA is
and does to the organisations and people in the wider community.
The Intergroup already has a liaison structure which deals with
Health, Courts and Social Services Public Information for Schools, Businesses etc.

But this year we are building a “committee structure” of volunteers
to help in each of these areas to broaden our reach and heighten awareness
in the wider community of what AA can do to help.

No matter how limited the time you have available, we are sure you can
provide a valuable contribution – delivering literature to schools, hospitals,
doctors surgeries are just some simple examples of how you can help.
Many of us find this kind of service in AA very rewarding. We are sure you will too.

If you are interested in finding out more just Email us for more information.
