Institutions Committee


The Ways and Means Committee is asking for a Home Group to Sponsor the Fall Bingo on November 19th. If your group would be interested in learning how you can Sponsor Bingo, please call the Intergroup Office at 410-272-4150 or send email to Kelly at For several years the Bel Air Big Book sponsored the Bingo Events. We want to say THANK YOU for everything they did.

The Intergroup Council is happy to announce that Carol S. has stood for Chair for the 2022-2024. She was voted in using the Third Legacy Procedure. Thanks to Jeff H. for serving as our administrator of this election. It was very technical – Jeff gave everyone small pieces of paper to write yes or no on; and Steffani M. rallied the on-line members. We put all our votes in Jeff’s baseball cap, and he opened each one . . . . it was very exciting. You have to experience it to truly understand . . . service, recovery, unity.
