Tradition One

Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon AA unity.

Tradition Seven

Every AA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

Step Ten

Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Concept Twelve

The Conference shall observe the spirit of A.A. tradition, taking care that it never becomes the seat of perilous wealth or power; that sufficient operating funds and reserve be its prudent financial principle; that it place none of its members in a position of unqualified authority over others; that it reach all important decisions by discussion, vote, and, whenever possible, by substantial unanimity; that its actions never be personally punitive nor an incitement to public controversy; that it never perform acts of government, and that, like the Society it serves, it will always remain democratic in thought and action.

Concept Ten

Every service responsibility should be matched by an equal service authority, with the scope of such authority well defined.

Step Three

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Concept Eight

The trustees are the principal planners and administrators of overall policy and finance. They have custodial oversight of the separately incorporated and constantly active services, exercising this through their ability to elect all the directors of these entities.

Step Six

Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

Tradition Nine

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

Tradition Eight

Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.

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.

Tradition Four

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

Change in name of link in General Information menu

Over the next few months, there will be a number of changes made to this web site.

The first is that a link under General Information menu has been changed from:

Central Service and District Minutes to be: Service Minutes and Guidelines.
In addition the guideline documents for both Central Service and District are available from this same page.  Therefore the separate links for each set of guidelines have been removed from this same menu.
