The Intergroup Council exists to serve and unify the services and activities of A.A. groups in the Baltimore Metropolitan area and to uphold the Twelve Traditions of A.A. The Council consists of one representative from each of the more than 500 groups in the Baltimore area. Through representatives working together, the Intergroup Council is able to accomplish tasks individual groups could not do alone.
