SoCal Area SA Intergroup
All recognized SA groups in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties belong to the Southern California Area of Sexaholics Anonymous. Each local group is highly encouraged to send a Group Service Representative (GSR) from their meeting to the monthly business meeting of the Southern California Area SA Intergroup. This business meeting is currently held via Zoom on the last Saturday of the month. Holiday weekends are typically moved to the prior Saturday. The Intergroup does not meet in December. Only members with 90 days or more of continuous sexual sobriety may vote at the meeting, but all members are welcome to attend and participate as a GSR or as an observer. Please send us an email if you would like to be added to the email distribution in order to be provided the Zoom link and the agenda for the Intergroup business meeting.
Monthly All Groups Speaker Meeting
All SA members are invited to attend the monthly All Groups Meeting held at 7PM immediately following each Intergroup meeting on the last Saturday of the month (and as described further above). This is a Speaker Meeting with 2-3 speakers from meetings in the SoCal area sharing their experience, strength, and hope. Please send us an email if you would like to be added to the email distribution in order to be provided the Zoom link for this meeting.
SA Service Manual
The SA Service Manual is a work in progress and is intended for use by members serving at the intergroup/area, regional, and national levels. Comments and suggestions are welcomed and can be directed to your Intergroup Representative (IGR) to the Southwest Region or to one of the Region’s Delegates (GAD).
Meeting Update Form
Until further notice, please send any updates about your local SoCal area meeting to the intergroup’s email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes updates about any of the following: Zoom numbers or other virtual meeting log-in numbers, dial-in phone numbers, switch to or re-start of in-person or hybrid meetings, etc.
Protocol Concerning Special Meetings
In May 2020, the SoCal Area intergroup approved a Protocol Concerning Special Meetings; ie, those meetings which are exclusive to men only, women only, same-sex attracted only, etc. The Protocol offers suggestions for how all of our groups can fulfill their primary purpose for carrying the message of SA to the suffering sexaholic.
