Meeting List has been updated as of 01 Oct 14
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
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.
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.
Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
Good service leadership at all levels is indispensable for our future functioning and safety. Primary world service leadership, once exercised by the founders, must necessarily be assumed by the trustees.
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.
Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
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.
Good day everyone,September Minutes from the District 1 meeting have now been uploaded to the CS and GS Minutes page.
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
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
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.
