Calgary Intergroup operates the Calgary Central Services Office, a resource for all members and potential members of Alcoholics Anonymous in Calgary and southern Alberta. Each AA group in Calgary and surrounding towns is welcome to elect an Intergroup Representative, all of whom make up the Intergroup body. Intergroup is responsible for sub-committees that look after the Calgary AA Archives, the Banff Roundup, local Special Events, and Public Information.
The Calgary Intergroup also publishes The WestWord, a monthly newsletter for Calgary AA members featuring articles, service and event information.

The Calgary General Service Committee was formed by the Calgary and area groups to coordinate the services outlined in Chapter 3 of the Service Manual, namely, those activities and services required in the areas of Treatment Facilities, Correctional Facilities and Co-operation with the Professional Community. Also, it provides a liaison with the Calgary Intergroup Committee and the international Grapevine Magazine. In addition, the committee organizes the annual Gratitude Roundup and Introductory Service Seminars, and it ensures that group registrations and records are current. The structure of the committee is similar to that of Area 78. During the monthly meeting of this committee, General Service Representatives and District Committee Members will be given the opportunity to volunteer their groups and districts for upcoming service work. The CGSC General Meetings are held at 7:30pm on the third Monday of each month at Peter the Aleut Church, 1802 – 33 Ave. S.W., Calgary. For further information about CGSC, click here.
Bridging the Gap (BTG) is a temporary contact program designed to assist the newcomer in making the transition from a treatment facility to Alcoholics Anonymous. Bridging the Gap supplies the newcomer with a temporary AA contact once they arrive home from the facility. The AA contact assists them with attending AA meetings until they become comfortable attending meetings on their own. For more information, or to become a volunteer click here.
