Qualification and term duration is entirely up to the discretion of their district.  Eastside Intergroup asks the District Appointed Board Members shall have at least three years of continuous current sobriety, have A.A. service experience and be knowledgeable of the purpose and functions of the Intergroup. Intergroup also asks the District Appointed Board Members serve a two-year term.
