CENTRAL OFFICE REP
The Central Office Representative attends all COR meetings monthly to represent GITC. She will be responsible for keeping Central Office informed of any address change, contact information changes, or meeting format or schedule changes. Additionally, she will provide and maintain Central Office with list of GITC volunteers willing to speak, take after hour phone calls, and make twelve step calls, stay abreast of Central Office newsletter (The Coffee Break), and relate back to the group any information they feel is important to the members. She will notify Central Office of special meetings, i.e. workshops, anniversaries, etc., purchase all, and only, conference literature approved by the group and coordinate with monthly meeting chair person to ensure needed chips are purchased and available for birthday night.
In A.A.land, the acronym “CPC” stands for “Cooperation with the Professional Community” and “PI” stand for “Public Information.” Likely, if you’ve been to one of our meetings, you’ve heard our CPC Chair, Jennifer J., mention that she is looking for committee members to help her share information about A.A. with local professionals in our community. Helping judges, lawyers, doctors, school counselors, etc. better understand the disease of alcoholism and better understand what A.A. is and what it isn’t, is truly an important job. If you are interested in getting in the car and taking our message out into the community, please reach out directly to our CPC/PI Chair.
Many A.A. members are unaware of the important work being carried out by corrections committees. To those involved, however, corrections work is an opportunity to carry the A.A. message to the confined alcoholic who wants to live sober, one day at a time. Through a corrections committee working with corrections personnel, alcoholics are reached who might never otherwise find the A.A. program.
GITC’s corrections committee is a vital link to prisons and jails, providing professionals and other workers in correctional facilities with information about A.A., literature, and guidelines for setting up A.A. groups on the inside. If you are interested in getting involved in Corrections work in taking meetings into correctional facilities, reach out to our Corrections Chair and she will get you plugged in.

The General Service Representative (GSR) is our group’s link to A.A. as a whole. They are the link in the chain of communication for our group with the General Service Conference and the world of AA. As trusted servants, their job is to bring information to our group in order that we may reach an informed group conscience about business matter for A.A. as a whole. In passing along this group conscience, we are helping to maintain the unity and strength so vital to our fellowship. There are many opportunities to do service outside of our group in the general service structure. If you are interested in learning more, contact our G.S.R. and he will be happy to help you.
The hospitality committee is an important part of our group. They ensure that the meetings are setup, the coffee is flowing, and the cookies are ready. If you are looking for a place to get plugged in and to do service, this is a great place to start. For more information, reach out to our Hospitality Chair and we will get you hooked up.
