Start a New S.L.A.A. Intergroup

An S.L.A.A. Intergroup is a regional service center made up of representatives from local S.L.A.A. Groups.  Any group(s) in an area can start an Intergroup, which can provide more effective and widespread outreach to those seeking help for sex and love addiction.  An Intergroup area can include one or more cities, states, or even countries.  Starting an Intergroup is an important step, as it combines the resources of several groups to do more than one group might be able to on its own.  Learn what an Intergroup does here.  To get started, follow the recommendations below.

  2. Elect a sober member from each Group to act as an Intergroup Representative.
    Your Intergroup can then establish service positions and begin developing the framework of the Intergroup.  You can read more about this in the Starter Kit.
  3. Register with Fellowship-Wide Services
    You should register with F.W.S. after your Intergroup has has one Business Meeting.  Registering helps the F.W.S. office provide better service to your Intergroup and can also be important if proof of affiliation with S.L.A.A. is requested by your bank when opening an account.  The Registration Form should be submitted on an annual basis or as needed to keep your information current.  The Registration Area is located at https://slaafws.org/registerintergroup and contains more information.
  4. Consider attending the Annual Business Conference/Meeting (ABC/M).
    The ABC/M is the yearly event where elected Delegates from Intergroups all around the world gather to help shape the future of S.L.A.A.  Any S.L.A.A. Intergroup has the opportunity to participate in this important service and meet with some wonderful recovering people.  LEARN MORE
