Southern Maryland Intergroup Association aids groups in carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers by:

• Arranging for the SMIA. Hotline, providing volunteers who respond to requests for help from still suffering alcoholics.
• Maintain SMIA. listings, handle phone and mail inquiries.
• Distribute up-to-date meeting lists.
• Stock and sell A.A. literature, Grapevine literature, and chips.
• Serve as communications center for groups through the Lifeline and website.
• Coordinate efforts of Corrections and Treatment, Cooperation with Professional Community, and Public Information.

The Intergroup does not accept money for its services or contributions from non-A.A. sources. Voluntary group contributions support the work of Intergroup.

7th Tradition
“The A.A. groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own members. We think that each group should soon achieve this ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals, or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then, too, we view with much concern those A.A. treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated A.A. purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money and
authority.”
According to MG-15 Finance- The recommended contributions to Service Entities are
