Each group elects an Intergroup Representative (IR) to serve as its representative at the monthly Intergroup meetings.
Is your life unmanageable because of debt? Are you sick of bouncing checks, paying late fees, and having creditors hound you? Does your financial life feel out of control?
There is hope. In working DA’s Twelve Steps, we have developed new ways of living. When we work the DA program with integrity and to the best of our ability, one day at a time, a life of prosperity and serenity will be ours.
Together we can accomplish what none of us could accomplish on our own. This is the simple principle underlying the need for DA Intergroups. The primary purpose of every DA group is to carry the message of recovery to the debtor who still suffers. We believe that, to do this effectively, individual DA groups require support.
The mission of Northwest DA Intergroup is to facilitate and support a spiritual pathway to solvency and abundance for the suffering debtor.
Northwest DA IG is a gathering of DA members who represent DA meetings throughout our geographic region, including Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. Our Intergroup meets every 4th Saturday of the month to plan and provide services for the entire region.
Our Intergroup plays a vital role in carrying the DA message to the still-suffering debtor. We are often the initial point of contact with DA members, or recovery materials, found by someone who is struggling with debting. This website -- including its schedule of DA meetings -- is one good example.
How does Northwest DA function? We come together to participate in representational decision-making, described in our literature as a process of "group conscience". As DA's 2nd Tradition states,
For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority -- a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants, they do not govern.
[Northwest DA Bylaws, Article II].
