3/6/18 • San Francisco Intergroup has launched a chat feature on their website that enables you to communicate with an intergroup volunteer in real time. Let us know if you think that would be useful on our site.

Digital Basket Committee

An Intergroup committee has formed to investigate methods that groups may use to collect 7th Tradition contributions digitally.  In the Holiday Issue of GSO’s newsletter (12/6/17), they mention San Francisco’s work and interview a NYC meeting treasurer who is using Venmo.

Our Intergroup committee has come up with some great information.  Please click on the below for more information.

 

We are eager to hear group experiences with Venmo and other electronic 7th Tradition payments. Please join us or contact us with the form below.
