Intergroup Purpose

When several groups form in an area, they soon realize that they can better perform certain functions together rather than separately. So the groups may form an Intergroup that is directly responsible to the groups it serves. Intergroups spring from a need to provide service for a number of local groups and help distribute information about OA in a community.

Separate “Intergroups” make up “Regions” and then the Regions(10 in all) combine to make up the World Service Organization (WSO). The Utah Soaring Intergroup is part of the Region 3 which serves Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.

This banding together of the groups provides many benefits.

The Utah Soaring Intergroup provides a common body for the coming together of the OA groups in Northern and Central Utah. We’re not restricted to Utah, nor do we represent all groups in the state. If you’re group is closer to Utah Soaring Intergroup, you might consider the benefits of aligning with us. You’ll see this happening in Southern Utah, where the cities there are closer to the Las Vegas Intergroup and are tied to them.
