COR’s are responsible for voting their group’s conscience at COR meetings and to inform the NCMCO Board about any concerns of their AA home group. The COR tries to keep their home group informed about what the Central Office is doing. COR’s are responsible for participating in the quarterly COR meetings, to share their home group’s experience in carrying the AA message and express how NCMCO may better serve the area’s AA Community.
