AA RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT
I am responsible.
When anyone, anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA always to be there.
And for that, I am responsible.
May was a very busy month for CNCA06 and for District 90. We attended the post conference assembly in Ukiah and were blessed to hear our Delegate, Padee M., share her experience, strength and hope from the 64th Annual General Service Conference. This assembly set an attendance record with 329 people at the event. The Area Registrar noted that all assemblies this panel have been setting attendance records. To me, that means that we are committed to the future of AA by being present and involved today. We also had our Unity Day to hear Padee’s report. She did an amazing job of synthesizing eleven days of hard work into a funny, poignant and fact filled talk about what she saw, heard and felt. We are blessed to participate in Alcoholics Anonymous in this area, as her love of AA and the dedication she has for this work, truly shines through her. Attendance at this Unity Day was up over 50% from the delegate’s report last year, so please, thank your groups for attending. Into Action Fellowship was awarded the Golden Service Manual, Tuesday Night Ladies received the Silver Service Manual, and On The Rocks walked away with the Bronze Service Manual.
This month, we will begin presenting the job descriptions for all the District Officers. This is done to allow you to start thinking about which service position you will make yourself available for, during the next Panel. This also gives you an opportunity to ask questions of the trusted servants that are currently serving in these positions.
One of the unexpected benefits of being in General Service is being asked to facilitate an inventory. So far this panel, I have helped facilitate a District Inventory and a Group Inventory, and through this process, I am reminded again and again, how we truly have the opportunity to learn to live a different way through the 12 steps, the 12 traditions and the 12 concepts for World Service in Alcoholics Anonymous.
The next big event on our district will be the opportunity we have to host the 2014 Summer Assembly on August 9. Barbara B. is the gracious chairperson for this event and she is busy getting committees set up to help us make this a success. It will be an experience you won’t want to miss. We will also be hosting the pre-assembly dinner on August 8 and the flyer for this event is on our District website. AASolanonorth.org. Please make your reservations by July 28.
Thank you for allowing me to serve,
Laurie J. DCMC
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
