About D.A. NYC Intergroup

What is Intergroup?

The Intergroup is a gathering of D.A. members who represent D.A. groups throughout a geographic region.

The primary purpose of each Intergroup is to support the D.A. meetings within its regional area and to help direct newcomers to those meetings. 

Intergroups can also provide opportunities for cooperation on fellowship projects that are beyond the capacity of any one group. Thus, Intergroups develop regional meeting lists, develop and maintain websites, and sponsor events which enable debtors to come together and share their recovery.
