Meeting List has been updated as of 01 Oct 14
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.”
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.
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.
For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
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.
