Intergroup maintains the list of all AA meetings within Broward County.
Your Intergroup office services all groups in the Broward County area. It is not a governing body and does not attempt to, nor can it, rule any AA Group. Its sole purpose is to act as a clearinghouse for the convenience of members and groups desiring assistance, and to extend the Twelve Step Work “carrying the message” to the sick alcoholic. The Intergroup office is supported entirely by contributions from groups, usually a specified amount each month or at intervals throughout the year. The office purchases and sells all conference-approved books and literature to groups throughout Broward County.
The Broward County Institutions Committee is a group of AA members who volunteer their time for the purpose of carrying the message of recovery from the disease of alcoholism into the Corrections and Treatment” facilities of Broward County.

The names and addresses of the 31 facilities are published on a monthly basis. These are available at the 1st Tuesday and 1st Thursday of the month meetings.
