What do A.A. group members do?

As stated in A.A.'s Responsibility Pledge, “I am responsible … when anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that I am responsible.” In short, when newcomers walk into our meeting rooms, we want A.A. to be there for them as it was for us — something we can do continuously only if we function as a group. But, for a group to keep going, all kinds of service must be done. It is through the combined efforts and ongoing commitment of group members that:
• A meeting place is provided and maintained.
• Programs are arranged for the meetings.
• Seventh Tradition contributions are collected and properly allocated and spent.
• A.A. General Service Conference-approved literature is on hand.
• Grapevine and La Viña literature and lists of local group meetings are available.
• Refreshments are available.
• Assistance in finding A.A. meetings in the area can be provided.
• Calls for help are answered.
• Group problems are aired and resolved.
• Continuing contact is sustained with the rest of A.A. — locally, through the intergroup or central office, the district and the area’s general service structure, and nationally and internationally, through the General Service Office in New York.
