Maine - New Brunswick
In Area 28 there is a Central Service Office in Portland and a DownEast Intergroup.
What is a Central Office or Intergroup?
Reprinted from A.A. Guidelines, Central or Intergroup Offices with permission of AA World Services, Inc.
CSO's and Intergroups are not part of the AA Service Structure but are considered part of AA. As Box 459 from the General Service Office puts it:
Meeting schedules of groups in Area 28 are maintained by the Portland Central Service Office & Downeast Intergroup. As a service to the fellowship, and in keeping with A.A.'s primary purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers, we are providing information on how to get in touch with the Portland CSO and the Downeast Intergroup.

Events taking place in Area 28 are listed by the Portland CSO. They use the same criteria for including AA events as is used by the General Service Office and the Grapevine: that the event is put on by AA members, for AA members and about AA.
