About the Greater Columbia Intergroup

We are an A.A. service organization created by and answering directly to local A.A. groups. We are individuals from A.A. groups located in central South Carolina A.A. Districts 22, 30, 31, 40, 42, 43, 50 and 51. We serve on a volunteer basis as office and hotline volunteers, steering committee members, and intergroup representatives.

Our primary purpose is to carry the A.A. message to the still suffering alcoholic. One of the ways we accomplish this is through our 24/7 hotline.  

This website provides general information about Alcoholics Anonymous®, particularly the local meeting and activity schedules for the Columbia and Midlands areas of South Carolina. We serve Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Chester, Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Edgefield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Lee, Lexington. Marlboro, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda, Sumter and Williamsburg counties. Please contact your Intergroup representative or the Intergroup office with questions and concerns.

The Greater Columbia Intergroup recognizes that there are many A.A. meetings taking place in treatment centers and institutions, and that many of the A.A. groups in our area help facilitate that effort. Due to varying visitor requirements which may preclude outsiders from entering these organizations, we have not listed these meetings on our website. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings or providing this service to a treatment center or correctional institution, please contact the Corrections or Treatment chairs for your district.

Office volunteers answer the phone, most often giving meeting information, and directing our fellowship members or the public to appropriate resources. Office volunteers also sell A.A. literature, distribute free pamphlets and flyers, and provide other services.

Intergroup Representatives

Each group from our service area is eligible to send a representative to our monthly Intergroup business meetings. The Greater Columbia Intergroup answers directly to these group representatives. 

Intergroup Steering Committee

The six-person steering committee, elected by the Intergroup representatives, sets goals; manages the financial obligations and inventory; and, oversees volunteers and other operations.
