What is Intergroup?
The ACA Intergroup exists to support the member groups of the Maryland, DC, and northern VA areas by carrying the message of recovery to adult children from alcoholic and dysfunctional families, using our combined resources.
It is important to note that the intergroup is NOT a governing organization that oversees area groups. As tradition four states, each group is autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or ACA as a whole.
Who is Intergroup
Intergroup is made of up of area ACA volunteers. Any ACA member may attend the monthly intergroup meeting either in person or via conference call. However, only official intergroup representatives may vote on issues at the meeting. Every member group may elect one intergroup representative to represent their group. Note: each representative may only have one vote and thus can only represent one group.
