About Portland Area Intergroup
What Is Portland Area Intergroup?

- Central Office
- Literature distribution
- Meeting schedules – printed and online
- A.A. Hotline – 24/7
- This website
- Liaison services for A.A. groups
- Liaison services for the general public
- Sponsoring special functions for all groups

“Conference-Approved” — What It Means to You
The term “Conference-approved” describes written or audiovisual material approved by the Conference for publication by G.S.O. This process assures that everything in such literature is in accord with A.A. principles. Conference-approved material always deals with the recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous or with information about the A.A. Fellowship.
The term has no relation to material not published by G.S.O. It does not imply Conference disapproval of other material about A.A. A great deal of literature helpful to alcoholics is published by others, and A.A. does not try to tell any individual member what he or she may or may not read. http://www.aa.org/lang/en/en_pdfs/smf-29_en.pdf
