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.
Attending an area assembly can be vocational and accelerating for so many of us, not only because it can be a learning experience, but we get to step out of ourselves and ask, “How can we be of service to the struggling Alcoholic?”
This Summer assembly was no different, we covered some very important topics like “Working w/ Other’s- How has it changed/How has it not Changed?” “Love, Tolerance & Humility- Practicing these principles in all our affairs.” Singleness of Purpose - Staying in the solution in a changing world.” The Home Group - Our responsibility and link to A.A.’s future.” “Keeping AA Safe for our diverse membership.” And last but not least, “The Service Gap, from meeting to meeting, are we self-supporting?” A few items that stood out, as I wrote my report are “That we have grown in meetings, but contributions are lower”; as well as “Many meetings are not being represented by GSR’s”. “Today’s younger generations are no longer just coming in with alcohol dependency, but with a dual dependency of alcohol and other substance(s)”.
The trustee’s Literature Committee is still seeking stories from AA members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or gender nonconforming, as well as women in AA, including women in the military, single moms, people with mental disabilities and alcoholism, disabled veterans. (Ask you GSR for more info) They also want to hear from the Spanish community; manuscripts should be 500-800 words, double-spaced, in 12-point font. Please include your complete name, address and email/phone information. The anonymity of all authors will be observed, whether or not their story is selected for publication.
The Alcoholics Anonymous World services Board passed a motion to grant a license to reproduce and distribute A.A. literature to Russia, to the Russian Service Office Board upon the expiration of the two temporary licenses. Both the R.S.O., and the Fund of Collaboration for the Movement of Alcoholics Anonymous. ( F.O.A.A.).
District 90 and our BTG Committee will be Hosting the 2015 Bridging the Gap Forum October 3rd, and Armando R. our GSR from the Into Action Fellowship is the Chairperson for our Fall Unity Day. “Look –out for flyers.”
In Unity and Service,
Evelyn O. District Committee Member Chairperson District 90
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.
