The California South Area World Service is comprised of the following service arms:
- Area World Service Board
- Area World Service Committee
- Area World Service Assembly
Though represented on the Area Committee, the seven Service Centers, a.k.a. Intergroup Offices and/or Area Information Service/Literature Distribution Centers (AIS/LDC), are not governed by the Southern California World Service (SCWS).
These offices perform a vital part of Public Information outreach and serve the California South Al-Anon Family Group (AFG) meetings by maintaining Al-Anon/Alateen meeting directories as well as having Al-Anon Conference Approved Literature (CAL) for sale.
