About New England Intergroup
"Intergroups have the job of linking the individual groups to Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous as a whole. Generally, any two or more groups in any area that wish to work together to assist the meetings they represent to grow and to help other sex and love addicts who still suffer may do so.' Intergroups act as guardians of the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions--meaning they help groups interpret the Steps and Traditions and encourage their use at meetings and in individual recovery to make S.L.A.A. safe for all who wish to attend. Intergroup members are representatives who provide the feelings, thoughts and ideas of the individual group they attend regularly and are representing, helping to ensure expansive experience, strength, and hope that will better enable the Intergroup to help those they serve--that is, the groups, their individual members AND those who still suffer.
Fellowship-Wide Services (F.W.S.) relies heavily on Intergroups to help carry the message to current and potential members of the program. Intergroups do a variety of activities for the meetings they represent, including (but not limited to): creating meeting lists, newsletters and literature, running conventions and workshops, holding special meetings and fundraising events."
