What is PSCSO?
The Puget Sound Central Service Office (PSCSO) is an independent, non-profit service organization whose mission is to support the members, groups, and service committees of our seven districts (9, 10, 29, 43, 44, 45, 54) in fulfilling their twelfth step work.
The PSCSO is managed by a Board that is composed of 2 directors from each of the seven districts and 5 Officers (Chair, Alt-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Alt-Treasurer) The board also consists of our Newsletter Editor, 2 Web Servants and an Archivist.
The Puget Sound Central Service Office has by-laws that govern its operation. These were adopted on 6/9/2019 and will be periodically updated as the board requires. (see CSO By-laws).
