Service Group Support for IGs, Chapters, & LSGs

Service Group Support Committee (SGSC)

The Service Group Support Committee (SGSC) is a World Service Inc. committee with the purpose of supporting local service groups, Chapters, and Intergroups with the goal of carrying the message of FA to the still-suffering food addict. The SGSC holds bi-monthly conference calls for anyone in the worldwide fellowship interested in learning more about service. The agenda for each meeting includes a discussion topic on service, and a time for either Intergroups and Chapters or local service groups to share about their recent activities.

Intergroups (IG) and Chapters

Intergroups and chapters are regional organizations within FA that are formed to help meetings carry the message of FA recovery to others.  This gift of recovery has been generously given to us as members of FA, and, in turn, we gratefully do what we can to pass it on.  The goals include: to further the FA program in accordance with the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of FA, to maintain a communication center for FA groups, to provide unity, and to educate the public about the FA program.

At this time, FA has two Intergroups:  Eastern Area Intergroup (EAI) and Western Area Intergroup (WAI).  There is also one chapter in the State of Maine.  The Maine Chapter is organized as a subgroup of EAI, which allows the Chapter to operate under the EAI bylaws, benefit from its years of experience, and operate as a nonprofit without the legal expense of incorporating.

Local Service Group (LSG)

A local service group consists of two or more FA members from more than one FA meeting group who combine resources to do service for FA. In situations requiring a formal decision, only members with at least 90 days of continuous abstinence in FA who are working with an FA sponsor shall have a voice and a vote.
