The office is open Monday to Friday 9.00am – 4.30pm. We have a good stock of Conference approved literature which you are welcome to come and browse.
We now have EFTPOS facilities!
We receive money, known as GROUP DONATIONS, traditionally referred to as “60/30/10”. Groups must first meet their expenses. Money left over may be donated to the Group Donation Plan. 60% for Perth CSO, 30% for General Service Office in Sydney and 10% for Area.
The Treasurer will also make a 50/30/10/10 split … but only if you say so! 50% for Perth CSO, 30% for General Service Office in Sydney, 10% for your Area and 10% for your District … and you have to tell us which District you are in (because not every group is in one).
Some groups have deposit books for the 60% and the 30% payments. Please make sure you get the cashier at the bank to make a note of your book number on the deposit slip… this tells us which group the payment is from. If your group does not have deposit books you are welcome to send the lump sum to Perth CSO and the Treasurer will make the split … but only if you say so! You have to give us instructions.
Our ABN number is 3648 2379 373 in the name A.A. Service Council for W.A.

AFTER HOURS HELPLINE – (previously referred to as “Voca”)
We have an eight week roster. When the office is closed the calls are diverted via the “Mastercall” After Hours Helpline to members’ landlines or mobile phones. Rosters Monday to Friday are from 4.30pm to 8.30am the next morning. Rosters on Saturday and Sunday are a 24 hour commitment, 9am to 9am. It is possible for two people to share a Saturday or a Sunday, splitting the day between them amicably.
