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.
I was unable to attend the ACM this past month, but I know that we were well represented. One of our newest DCMs was able to give the “state of the district” report at the mic. I am so proud of the way members in our district step up and follow through with service commitments.
As we enter the final 3 months of Panel 63, I have begun thinking about how much the individual A.A. groups in our district, and being involved in General Service work has helped to keep me sober and growing these past 21 months. I’ve also started to think about how I can help the next trusted servants by sharing my experience, strength and hope. The visiting area officer at our district meeting this month, shared his experience with how to “pass it on”. This phrase means so much to our very survival. As recovered alcoholics we continue to pass on what we have learned in AA and to help the new alcoholic that comes to our door. Without this we will surely wither and die. He spoke about the book called “Pass It On: The Story of Bill Wilson and How the A.A. Message Reached the World”. It is the biography of A.A.'s co-founder and the development of the Fellowship. This is another tool we can use to ensure we keep the message of A.A. alive.
We will be having elections at our District 90 business meeting on November 5, and I encourage you to make yourself available to serve on Panel 65. It is a two year commitment and there are several positions available. This type of service work is the important link between the General Service Office and our individual groups. For a description of the job guidelines, please go to AASolanoNorth.org. Here is a list of positions that must be filled by January 2015. District Committee Member chair (DCMC), District committee member (DCM); General Service Representative (GSR), District Treasurer, District Recording Secretary, District Registrar, Public Information/Cooperation with the Professional Community Representative (PI/CPC Rep), Bridging The Gap Chair (BTG chair), Literature/Grapevine Committee Chair and Webmaster.
Respectfully, Laurie J. DCMC District 90- Panel 63
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.
