Steering Committee

The SEPIA Steering Committee holds regularly scheduled meetings and deals with general policy and plans. 

The SEPIA Intergroup office is an A.A. service office that involves partnership among groups in the Southeastern Pennsylvania A.A. community — just as A.A. groups themselves are partnerships of individuals. The SEPIA office is established to carry out certain functions common to all the groups — functions which are best handled by a centralized office —  and is supported by the groups we serve. It exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
