What is an Intergroup?
An S.L.A.A. Intergroup Is:
An S.L.A.A. Intergroup has the job of linking the individual meeting groups to Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous as a whole. Generally, any two or more groups in any area that wish to work together may form an Intergroup to assist the meetings they represent to grow in order to help other still-suffering sex and love addicts. Fellowship-Wide Services (FWS) relies heavily on Intergroups to help carry the message to current and potential members of the program.
Intergroup Members Are:
Intergroup members are representatives from individual groups/meetings who provide the feelings, thoughts and ideas of the meeting they regularly attend and are representing, helping to ensure expansive experience, strength, and hope that will better enable the Intergroup to help those they serve—that is, the groups, their individual members, AND those who still suffer.
What Intergroups Do:
Intergroups do a variety of activities for the meetings they represent, including (but not limited to): creating meeting lists, newsletters and literature, running conventions and workshops, holding special meetings and fundraising events.One of the primary functions of an Intergroup is to help individual groups interpret the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions. Intergroups suggest and encourage the use of the Steps and Traditions at meetings and in individual recovery in order to make S.L.A.A. safe for all who wish to attend.
