Australian Intergroup Planning

  • In 2021 the Sydney and Victorian Intergroups agreed, in principle, to merge, to create the SLAA Australian Intergroup. This would give Intergroup representation, for the first time, to all in-person and virtual meetings nationally.
  • This Discussion Paper from 2020, put together by some SLAA members, is merely some ideas about the how and why of a national Intergroup.

Draft Australian Intergroup Constitution available for feedback

Amendments to the Sydney Intergroup Constitution have been proposed that would create the Australian Intergroup Constitution. The proposed amendments are effectively the Draft Australian Intergroup Constitution.

Suggested amendments are presented in “track changes“. This shows exactly what words in the current Sydney Intergroup Consitution are proposed to be inserted and deleted. The suggested changes are deliberately minimal. Explanatory comments in the document give further information about the proposed amendments.

Feedback is sought, from SLAA groups and members nationally. Please submit feedback or questions to [email protected] before the next Sydney Intergroup meeting on April 30, 2022.
