Step Five

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

Step One

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol–that our lives had become unmanageable.

Tradition Eleven

Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.

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.

 

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 Seven

Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

Step Two

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

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.

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 Four

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

Concept Six

The Conference recognizes that the chief initiative and active responsibility in most world service matters should be exercised by the trustee members of the Conference acting as the General Service Board.

Step Twelve

Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

October book of the month: Sober and out

Sober & Out is a collection of stories by AA members who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered (and a few friends) from the pages of AA Grapevine. They share their experience, strength and hope with alcoholism as well as their personal struggles and hard-fought triumphs. The stories in this book show that—like most alcoholics—LGBT AAs struggle to fit in, stay sober and find peace in their lives. By working the Steps, following the Traditions, doing service, and finding a Higher Power, they are now living sober in the Fellowship of AA.

Literature Price Increase

LITERATURE PRICE INCREASE
1. As you may be aware, it is the policy of A.A. World Services, Inc, to review literature
prices every three years for any price adjustments that may be needed. Our last price
increase was on July 1, 2009, five years ago. On February 3, 2014, the General Service
Board accepted the A.A.W.S. Board’s recommendation for an increase in literature
prices.
2. Effective October 1, 2014 most book prices in the three languages of our Conference
(English, Spanish, and French) will be increased. Some examples of the increase are:
Alcoholics Anonymous 4th edition (Big Book) will increase $1.50, 12 X12 $1.50, As bill
sees it $1.00. and Living Sober $0.75
3. Districts 1 and 2 literature will increase soon after, in stock literature will not increase
until new orders are placed from GSO. When the updated literature order form appears
online, will indicate that the new prices have taken effect.
