SERVICE

Service provides opportunities to practice the principles of the 12 steps, stay sober, and give what was so freely given to you.

Service for NCIG Central Office:

DAY WATCH:

Volunteer your time at Central Office. You will answer phones, give out information, but not phone #s, speak with alcoholics and/or families/ friends/ businesses, setup 12th step calls, etc. Be able to do some essential office work when we open again full time (filing, folding, stapling, copying, handling money, selling books, literature, gifts, etc. These are regular shifts, done once a week in 2-hour shifts.

If you or anyone you know (like a sponsee ; ) would like to be a substitute for any day shift, please let us know. Or, fill out our brief application.

 

NIGHT WATCH:

We are in need of Night Watch substitute volunteers to answer the phones for those who need help. All you need is a phone and NCIG A.A. calls will be forwarded to your phone for the shift. If you or anyone you know (like a sponsee) would like to be a substitute for any night or weekend shift, please let us know. Or, fill out our brief application.

FAITHFUL FIVERS:

Central Office could really use some Financial Support!

Faithful Fivers are members of the A.A. fellowship that choose to make recurring monthly contributions to Northern Colorado Intergroup. These pledges support NCIG’s continued effort to carry the A.A. message of recovery and hope to alcoholics who still suffer from alcoholism in the Northern Colorado Area. The suggested monthly contribution is $5.00.

    • We service groups in Northern Colorado (from the Wyoming border to Boulder and the Kansas/Nebraska border to Walden). This adds up to 73 groups. Of those 73 groups only 10 to 20 group reps attend our Intergroup meetings on a regular basis. That is the participation of approximately 20-30% of all Northern Colorado meeting groups. We are here to help you carry the message to the next alcoholic.

Bridging the Gap Committee/Program:

Be a temporary contact between the treatment facilities and outside of AA. This is a commitment to help the newcomers integrate into A.A. when they get home from treatment. You would meet them at their first meeting (hopefully the day or day after they get out). Introduce them to people in the program, help them get numbers, a meeting schedule, literature, etc. Stay in touch, maybe meet them at a second or third meeting. This is such a great way to do service work and help a newcomer by guiding him or her through the first week or so!

To be a BTG representative you:

*MUST HAVE 6 MONTHS OF SOBRIETY*

*MUST HAVE A WORKING CAR AND VALID LICENSE*

AA’s Unity Declaration:

This we owe to A.A.’s future: To place our common welfare first; To keep our

Fellowship united.  For on A.A. unity depend our lives and the lives of those to come.

 

"The basket"... Something to consider.

The General Service Office in New York, who supports and services US and Canada meeting groups, districts, and areas has incurred a 50% (at least) cut in their income due to the 2020 pandemic.

Some facts:

* Less than 44% of groups contribute to the General Service Office.

* Costs of Services provided by G.S.O. are $6.32 per member per year

* A.A. literature sales account for 56% of G.S.O.'s income.

Self-Support:

The Seventh Tradition states: "Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting,

declining outside contributions."

While contributions cover each group's rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition

is essential at every level of A.A. service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for

groups and members to ensure that not only their group but also their Intergroup/Central

Office, local services, district, area, and the General Service Office remain self-supporting.

This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose -

to help the alcoholic who still suffers. The amount of our contribution is secondary to the

spiritual connection that unites all groups around the world.
