About DATIG

Debtor's Anonymous Telephone Intergroup (DATIG) is made up of program volunteers, Intergroup Officers, and Intergroup Meeting Representatives from each debtors anonymous telephone meeting. They meet monthly to exchange information and vote on motions to support the debtors anonymous telephone fellowship and reach out to the addict who still suffers.

We want to tell others who are experiencing the same problems that there is a solution. DATIG combines the resources of the individual telephone groups to carry out projects that would be difficult for a single phone meeting to achieve.

As defined in the D.A. Service pamphlet:

"An Intergroup consists of representatives from Debtors Anonymous meetings in a defined area, such as a city and nearby suburbs, who meet periodically to provide services for the entire area...The intergroup is usually responsible for a number of activities that support meetings in the area, such as keeping a list of current meeting times and locations, maintaining a phone recording with meeting information, in bulk and selling it to groups, sponsoring workshops, and perhaps maintaining a website."

The DATIG Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality and communication between all of the D.A. telephone meetings.

"Our fundamental commitment at each DATIG meeting is to offer service to our fellow debtors. In this spirit of service, we strive to treat each other with consideration, compassion and courtesy.”

How does DATIG work?

Every D.A. telephone meeting elects a meeting representative to attend and participate in the monthly DATIG meetings. These representatives bring ideas from each group and return with news and information.

When are the DATIG Business Meetings?

Please see the Service page for up-to-date schedule and call-in information.

Can I attend the meeting if I'm not an Intergroup Representative?

Anyone is welcome to attend DATIG meetings as a guest for information and to discuss or vote on a motion. All guests are welcome to ask questions during the meeting.

What are the suggested requirements to be an Intergroup Representative for my meeting?

As every meeting is autonomous, please check with you meeting leader for information on requirements to represent that meeting. Below are some suggestions for new meetings if no qualifications are in place:

Generally, each Intergroup Officer should also maintain these requirements.

Why get involved in DATIG meetings?

Intergroup activities are more than just meetings. They are chances to have fun with other D.A. members, to visualize exciting projects and make them happen, and to see ourselves grow as we work together.

Does my meeting have a DATIG representative?

At the present time, only 6 of the 41 meetings registered with DATIG are sending representatives to the quarterly business meetings.

Not only does that mean we have very few people to do a lot of work, it means we don't know what many of our members want and need from us. If you would like to change this and give back by being of service, review the suggested requirements for participation and either let your meeting secretary know, contact us, or attend the next DATIG meeting for more information.
