Answering Service 12-Step Calls
Our method of taking 12-step phone calls is a computerized answering service. We need people who are willing to get these phone calls from people who may think they have a problem with alcohol. We receive several calls per month to help the person find meetings or to just talk. The only requirement is 6 months of sobriety.
Please contact us if you are willing to serve in this capacity. You can be a primary contact or an alternate. You can pick the time frame that you would be willing to accept the calls (any block in a 24 hour period, any day of the week).
Each home group should have an intergroup representative that speaks for and represents his/her home group. The representative attends the regular intergroup business meeting and ensures we have a group conscious. Contact your home group chairperson if you are interested.
