About PSCSO

What is PSCSO?

The Puget Sound Central Service Office (PSCSO) is an independent, non-profit, service organization whose mission is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to Pierce, North Mason, and Kitsap counties (see Districts Map).

The PSCSO is managed by the PSCSO Board which is composed of directors from Districts 9, 10, 29, 43, 44, 45, and 54.

PSCSO is not directly a part of the A.A. Service Structure, but was established to carry out certain functions common to all local groups (see AA Guidelines for Central or Intergroup Offices).

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).
