Concept Five

Throughout our structure, a traditional “Right of Appeal” ought to prevail, so that minority opinion will be heard and personal grievances receive careful consideration.

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 Eight

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

Tradition Nine

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

Concept Four

At all responsible levels, we ought to maintain a traditional “Right of Participation,” allowing a voting representation in reasonable proportion to the responsibility that each must discharge.

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.

Step Five

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

Tradition Three

The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking.

Tradition Ten

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

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 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.

Step Eight

Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

Public Information Committee

The Public Information function in Alcoholics Anonymous follows the principals of being about “attraction not promotion” and of remaining anonymous. It’s goal is to carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic. This can take various forms including distribution of literature, airing of public service announcements on television and radio, presentations and speakers for groups.
If this interests you, contact us for more information. The committee is looking for members; we will have our first meeting in early January 2015. For more info contact:
