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 talking to the District 90 Officers a couple of weeks ago about how we can get more local A.A. members excited about the part of A.A. that’s called General Service.
There is a pamphlet available from the General Service Office in New York, called Circles of Love and Service: How the parts of A.A. all fit and work together. “All parts of our Fellowship-group meetings, committees, offices, Conferences, and group jobs – have one joint purpose: to help that one newcomer who has a drinking problem.” This means that we need to communicate between the groups, areas and districts throughout A.A. as a whole. That’s a big task and we need General Service Representatives (GSRs) to help accomplish this. The GSR may be the most important job in A.A. You can make your group’s voice heard, and you can strengthen your group by the shared experience of other groups. Each group has issues, concerns and comments that may be similar to other groups, or very different, but in the end, we know that when we share, we can gain experience, strength and hope to live another day of recovery.
We have quite a few “Dark meetings” in our District. That means that there are groups in Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun and Rio Vista that have no representation when we meet to discuss business at the once a month District 90 meeting. (The first Wednesday of the month at 413 Williams Street in Vacaville at 7pm). I am committed this next couple of months to visiting groups that are dark. I hope to see you at your home group and I am willing to answer questions or come to your business meetings to share the excitement and the desire to have your group to be involved.
Is your group connected to AA as a whole? If not, I personally invite you to come to our next District 90meeting to observe another way we can give back what was freely given to us. What we do in general service is directly related to recovery - yours, mine and the newcomer who hasn’t made it through the doors yet.
Thank you for letting me be of service,
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.
