Why a Central Office? -- Willamette Valley Intergroup Inc. exists to aid AA groups in the Willamette Valley area in the common purpose of carrying the AA message to the alcoholic who still suffers. Intergroup is made up of elected representatives from the AA groups it serves. Intergroup is financed by the voluntary contributions of these groups, in keeping with AA tradition.
To help coordinate efforts Intergroup operates the Central Office. The Office serves as the hub for the 24-hour phone line, the phone directory listing for AA, as a meeting space, publishes meeting listing and schedules and "The Eye Opener" newsletter. The Office provides for the sale of A. A. literature and coins, helps provide coordination of meetings in institutions and 12-step calls and activities necessary to carry the AA message, and so much more.
