Central Office

Central Office, by A.A. tradition, is a service organization. It’s often the first point of contact with A.A. for people who believe they may have a drinking problem.

The Alcoholics Anonymous World Services web site informs us of Central Office functions and services. This document informs AA members of what Central Offices do, how they function, and why they are essential in spreading the AA message to communities.

Office Hours: Monday - Friday 10 am - 4 pm, Saturday by appointment. 

WHO is Intergroup/Central Office?

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.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      ~ AA Guidelines (MG 02)
