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.
District 90 hosted another successful Unity Day this past weekend. It was a workshop on Agenda topics, which are items for discussion and possible change in AA at the annual General Service Conference in New York in April. Your General Service Representatives (GSRs) used final agenda topics, summaries and background information to practice how to gather a group conscience, take that group conscience to the mic, and have fun in the process. There were 13 homegroups represented that day, with a total of 68 AA members in attendance. The bronze service manual went to Group 86, the silver went to Tuesday Night Ladies and the golden service manual went to Into Action Fellowship. Save the date for the next Unity Day, May 31, 2014. Our delegate will be here to share what went on in New York during the General Service Conference.
There was sad news at the Area Committee Meeting (ACM) in February. Past delegate, Suzanne M. passed away. She is the one who started our background summaries (for the Agenda Topics) and served for many years. There will be a celebration of her life in Santa Rosa on March 8 and another in May. In other news at the ACM, we passed a Housekeeping motion “That CNCA reimburse the delegate for all reasonable incidental expenses incurred in conjunction with attendance at the General Service Conference, up to $1300,and be an advance check in the amount to cover these expenses.” (up from $1000.00). The chair of the Interpretation and Translation Committee, Richard H., needs to hear from our District on the matter of whether or not we need to provide American Sign Language translation during the Post Conference Assembly. I’d like to be able to present our district’s conscience at the next ACM meeting in April or May. Our Area CNCA06 (California Northern Coastal Area – 06) currently provides American Sign Language interpretation/translation during the Post Conference Assembly,and DVDs are burned and made available for groups to use. Do we need to continue to provide this service if no one is using it or asking for it?
The pre-conference assembly will be held in Monterey on April 5-6, and it’s coming up quick. Your job between now and then is to host agenda topic workshops within your homegroup. District officers are available if you need help in facilitating these meetings to get an group conscience. Once we get to Monterey, you will bring your group’s conscience to the mic for our delegate to take back to New York. If you are unable to attend, you can give your consciences to the DCM, or DCMC and we’ll make sure your voice is heard.
You are cordially invited to the Pacific Regional Forum to be held the weekend of July 11-13, 2014 in Boise, Idaho. Representatives of the General Service Board and members of the General Service Office and Grapevine staff will be present at the Forum to share experience, respond to questions and hear suggestions. It will be a weekend of lively participation for all concerned.
August 9, 2014 – The Summer Assembly will be hosted by our district. This is next great event of the year, and I’ve begun to hear the buzz and excitement. This is an amazing event that brings unity to our District. Please talk with your homegroups and make yourselves available to be of service.
Your trusted servant,
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.
