The group's central services office in New York has about 85 workers who keep in touch with localized groups throughout the world. The organization has two operating corporations, which report to a general-services board composed of 14 AA members and seven "nonalcoholic friends of the Fellowship." AA publishes literature about alcoholism and its approach to sobriety in a monthly international journal, books and information pamphlets.
An area is a geographical division within a state or province. A general service conference delegate comes from an area. In Massachusetts there are two areas – the Eastern Mass. Area (Area 30) and the Western Mass. Area (Area 31).
"A central office (or intergroup) is an A.A. service office that involves partnership among groups in a community - just as A.A. groups themselves are partnerships of individuals. A central office is established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups - functions which are best handled by a centralized office - and it is usually maintained, supervised, and supported by these groups in their general interest. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers."
