And for that, I am responsible.
Greetings District 90 fellowship,
At the ACM this month, our delegate announced that the 2015 International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous will be held July 2-5, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Spring 2014 issue of Box 459 has information on the conference theme and presentation topics. Start saving for this amazing event now.
We passed two housekeeping motions in March. 1st Motion: “That CNCA fund a member of the Archives committee to the National Archives Workshop in King Of Prussia, PA, Oct 9-12 at a cost not to exceed $850.00.” The 2nd motion: “That the Area grant our BTG Liaison funding of up to $350.00 to attend the H & I General Conference in Chicago, for 2 nights, May 2-4.”
There was presentation of new business “That future printings of the A. A. Service Manual include blank Group Change, and New Group forms on the last page of the Service Manual”. This will be new business at the next Area Committee Meeting in April.
Every month, I get to talk about “the state of our district” to all that attend the ACM. I am so very proud of our district officers and the GSRs that I have the privilege to serve with on Panel 63. They have done a wonderful job in learning how to gather informed group consciences at their homegroup, and for being the link to carry their groups feelings on topics that are being discussed around the United States and Canada. By the time you read these words, the Pre-Conference Assembly will have come and gone, and our delegate will be in New York for the annual General Service Conference. We will have filled her heart and her mind with the ideas, thoughts and suggestions we have for helping make the best decisions for A.A. a whole.
We have a great example of this process in our very own District 90. The spirit of rotation is important to the health of our current membership and to help ensure our future growth. Several years ago, a member from our local fellowship realized that this principle was absent from The A.A. Service Manual. As the GSR for his homegroup, he started the process that culminated in the addition of The Principle of Rotation being added to our service manual this year.
As I sit here thinking how rich and full my sobriety is, I get a tear in my eye and I reflect how we, as trusted servants are helping to ensure that AA continues to be here for future generations of alcoholics. There is a solution, and we are responsible for carrying the message of recovery.
Doing my best to be your trusted servant,
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.
