Concept Seven

The Charter and Bylaws of the General Service Board are legal instruments, empowering the trustees to manage and conduct world service affairs. The Conference Charter is not a legal document; it relies upon tradition and the A.A. purse for final effectiveness.

Concept Eleven

The trustees should always have the best possible committees, corporate service directors, executives, staffs, and consultants. Composition, qualifications, induction procedures, and rights and duties will always be matters of serious concern.

Step Eleven

Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

Tradition Ten

Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.

Step Seven

Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Concept Three

To insure effective leadership, we should endow each element of A.A. —the Conference, the General Service Board and its service corporations, staffs, committees, and executives—with a traditional “Right of Decision.”

Concept One

Final responsibility and ultimate authority for A.A. world services should always reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.

Step Nine

Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Concept Two

The General Service Conference of A.A. has become, for nearly every practical purpose, the active voice and the effective conscience of our whole Society in its world affairs.


Tradition Four

Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or AA as a whole.

Step Five

Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

Tradition Nine

AA, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.

November book of the month: Experience, Strength & Hope

Nov's Book AA 001


Stories from the first three editions of Alcoholics Anonymous

This collection of stories offers back to the A.A. Fellowship the experience of 56 members whose stores are no longer available in the book of Alcoholics Anonymous.  There have been three revisions of the Big Book’s story section, and each time, as new stories were added to reflect A.A’s changing membership, others had to be dropped to make room for them. Over the years, more and more A.A. members requested a separate publication of these stories, and as the General Service Conference moved toward publication of a fourth edition of the Big Book, it concurrently asked for publication of this collection, which was approved in 2002.

Look back at the miracles that happened within A.A. in the early days of the group’s existence.  Read how some of the first members came to be in the rooms and how they learned to live their lives sober with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous.

This book is priced to sell and would make a great Christmas present to fellow members and friends.
