Thank you to the Sydney Fellowship

At the first meeting of the Australian Intergroup on September 10, 2022 the following motion was passed unanimously.

The Australian Intergroup expresses its gratitude to the Sydney fellowship for providing national services to the Australian SLAA fellowship, through the Sydney Intergroup, for over 25 years.

Welcome to the SLAA Australian Intergroup

On August 13, 2022 the Sydney Intergroup became the Australian Intergroup after constitutional amendments were approved. This was after a year long process consulting with the national fellowship. All groups nationally, either in-person or virtual, are now able to participate in the Australian Intergroup.

The Victorian Intergroup initiated this process when it proposed to merge with the Sydney Intergroup to create a national intergroup.

Any SLAA member may attend Intergroup. However only Intergroup Representatives, appointed by SLAA groups, and Intergroup office-holders are eligible to vote.

The Intergroup WhatsApp group is where Intergroup Meeting agendas and minutes are circulated. Intergroup Representatives and interested members are invited to join the WhatsApp Group by emailing slaaaustralia@gmail.com.

Next Intergroup meeting is Saturday September 10 at Noon, AEST.
