Who We Are!
We are an A.A. service entity created by and answering directly to local A.A. groups.
We are men and women of A.A. groups from central South Carolina A.A. Districts 22, 31, 42, 43, 50 and 51. We serve on a volunteer basis as daytime office workers, and in the evenings as steering committee members, and Intergroup representatives. Our office phone number 803.254.5301, is our A.A. Hotline and is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Our sobriety ranges from newcomer to old-timer. Some of us are retired and some are just starting our lives again. There are service opportunities for every length of sobriety.

What We Do
We provide 12-Step service to Central South Carolina.
Our daytime volunteers are the backbone of your Intergroup’s 12-Step service. One must have at least six months of sobriety to serve in this capacity, but many of our treasured regular volunteers are “old-timers” with double-digit sobriety. Regular volunteers serve one four-hour shift per week. Floating volunteers serve as often as they like; anywhere from once every week or two to once every two or three months.
Volunteers answer the phone, most often giving meeting information, and directing our fellowship members or the public to proper resources. Volunteers sell A.A. literature, distribute schedules and free pamphlets, and provide other services.
Each group from our service area is eligible to send a representative to our monthly Intergroup meetings. Your Intergroup answers directly to these representatives, who are the group conscious of your Intergroup. They govern your Intergroup and must have at least one year of sobriety to serve.
Intergroup Steering Committee
The six-person steering committee, elected from the Intergroup representatives. The committee sets goals; manages the financial obligations and inventory; and, oversees volunteers and other operations. Steering committee members must have at least two years of sobriety.
