Intergroup Service Positions
Zurich Intergroup provides opportunities to be of service complimentary to individual and group service. We encourage you to consider and take advantage of service positions when they become available and join us in supporting AA’s primary purpose — that of carrying our message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
Most IG service positions require a minimum of 2 years of continuous sobriety, but this can be waived in some instances. For Group Service Representatives (GSRs), minimum sobriety requirement is decided by the respective Group electing their GSR to serve at Intergroup.
Open service positions as of Nov. 1st 2020
Helpline Coordinator (min 2 years continuous sobriety, good working knowledge of the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions, 1-2 year service commitment)The Helpline Coordinator manages the functions of IG’s telephone helpline service as recommended in the IG Service Handbook (Refer to Appendix B page 39 for details of tasks and responsibilities). Note, the Helpline Coordinator does not answer helpline calls. Rather, they are in possession of IG’s mobile phone to automatically forward incoming helpline calls to rotating telephone service volunteers’ phones on a bi-weekly or monthly basis.
