Why does our CSO need to exist?

Tradition Five stipulates that ‘Each Group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.’ However, there are tasks that Groups are not readily able to undertake alone. Therefore, Groups in Sydney’s Inner West, CBD and Eastern Suburbs have banded together to support a Central Service Office that can be a front door to AA, all day, every day.

When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.
