The Northern California (NorCal) H&I Committee is a Ninth Tradition service committee, directly responsible to those we serve: i.e. the AA groups of Area 53, which covers all of Alameda County, including the El Cerrito Fellowship. To that end, we encourage your group to send a voting H&I group representative to the Area Business Meeting. As with other service committees, the function of this representative is to bring the voice of the individual group to the NorCal Area 53 H&I Committee and take vital information about H&I back to their group.
