The purpose of the IGR Quarterly Forums is to bring information to the IGRs, give all IGRs an opportunity to share information with each other, ask questions, and spark new ideas. What ideas does your group have? We are collecting them here: IGR.forum@aa-intergroup.org

IGRs, please prepare for April 29 by asking your group members to tell you what they want or need from OIAA as an Intergroup. Do not fret if they don’t know. Some groups may make no request while others will offer several ideas and items. The Forum will provide everyone with a learning opportunity.
