NCMCO News

“Every A.A. member wants every alcoholic in the world to have the chance he had.Every A.A. member wants unity for our movement. Every A.A. member wants the good opinion of medicine, religion, and the general public. We know we must have these things or the new man may never get his chance. The Intergroup associations are the best insurance we can have
that our life lines to the hundreds of thousands yet to come will never break or tangle. Let usalways be generous. Let us warmly support Intergroup”
–A.A. Co-Founder
Bill W. 1949

New Service Opportunity; Answering After Hours Phone Calls:   NCMCO is now offering opportunities for AA members to answer calls after regular office hours. We are not eliminating the current answering service; rather, this involvement of volunteers will augment the service. Individual AA members can sign up for one night a week or one night a month or even just an occasional night or weekend – whatever best fits their schedules. The after-hours call times are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – from 1:00pm until 10:00am the following morning; Friday 1:00pm through the weekend until Monday 10:00am                                                 To participate, members need to fill out a sign-up sheet  and then meet with a member of the subcommittee to go over the procedures and guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering for this service, please call Central Office – 828-254-8539. Procedure for After-Hours Phone Volunteers   &    After-Hours Phone Sign-Up Sheet

What is a Central Office Representative and What are their Duties?  Central Office Reps or COR’s are similar to GSR’s and their relationship with AA Districts. 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
