The aims of the intergroup are to aid the constituent groups in their common purpose of carrying the AA message to the still suffering alcoholic and, by using their combined strength and unity, to improve and maintain good relations with all organisations in the community.

Intergroup is comprised of a Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer assisted by Liaison Officers who hold responsibility in the following areas: Archives, Armed Services, Electronic Communications, Employment/Industry, Health Services, Probation, Public Information, Share Magazine, Telephone Help Line and Young People Inc. Schools. At the core of the Intergroup are the General Service Representatives who represent the groups that comprise the Intergroup. Intergroup meets and conducts itself as a business meeting in the interest of the constituent groups and the still suffering Alcoholic.
Apart from these Interest areas other activities are pursued by Intergroup namely such gatherings as Intergroup conventions where the Intergroup celebrates success in sobriety and shares it with all who attend. We also arrange workshops to address issues such as service and outreach programs such as professional days, Public Information fairs etc.
