Region 9 countries are wonderfully diverse. The easiest ways to make your group’s 7th Tradition contribution to Region 9 directly are given below.

If you are unable to send funds directly (in euros or GPB) electronically or without fees, then you can often forward contributions to R9 through your Intergroup/ National/Language Service Board who will collate it with other groups’ contributions before sending on to us at Region 9. Check with your Service Body first to ensure they are able to do this for your group. (Specify clearly if your contributions are to be split between different service bodies. Please email the R9 Treasurer & Banker to let them know the funds are coming and via which Service Body.)

You may also send contributions intended for WSO through Region 9. If your contribution, or a portion of your contribution, is intended for WSO – please make clear the amount to be forwarded to WSO on your group’s behalf.

We have given a suggested email text below as an example for your convenience.

When sending to Region 9 – please send an email to the Region 9 treasurer & banker (treasurer@oaregion9.org & banker@oaregion9.org) – giving the details of your group’s contribution and details regarding amounts and service body (Specific amount for Region 9 & WSO please where appropriate.) The R9 Treasurer will send you a receipt. (With all contributions please let the treasurer & banker have an email address so a receipt can be emailed and thereby save money on unnecessary postage.)

It is obviously within our interests to reduce the amount of Bank Charges payable. So investigate the best way you can forward your contributions to Region 9 and all service levels to reduce charges.
