Queens Intergroup

Of

Alcoholics Anonymous

Bylaws

 

Founded -- September 27, 1991
Started Operations -- November 1, 1991
Incorporated -- June 6, 1994

The object of these bylaws is to provide for the continuing
successful operation of a united intergroup in Queens County and to
further the AA program in accordance with the Twelve Traditions of
Alcoholics Anonymous. There should be no rules in AA other than
what we choose to impose upon ourselves. These bylaws set out
what the groups have agreed to - not what has been imposed upon
them. The Intergroup Committee shall observe in all its activities the
spirit of AA's "Twelve Traditions" to ensure that the body never
becomes a governmental seat of perilous wealth or power; that
maintaining only sufficient operating funds, and an ample reserve,
shall be its prudent financial principle; that none of its officers shall
ever be placed in a position of unqualified authority, that all important
decisions shall be reached by discussion and majority vote; that no
action shall be personally vindictive or an incitement to public
controversy; and that, like the society of Alcoholics Anonymous that it
serves, it shall always remain democratic in thought and action.
