Greetings from District 22!
March & April 2022
This is the busiest time of year in General Service. The 72nd General Service Conference will be held on April 24-30. That is where the Delegates and Trustees from U.S. and Canada meet in Brooklyn, New York to discuss and make policies/decisions for the A.A. Groups.
Topics will include:
Discuss request to make A.A. literature changes slowly and with A.A.’s primary purpose in mind
Consider request to add a historical disclaimer to the front of the book Twelve Steps and Twelve Tradition
Discuss the wide-ranging impact the Preamble change has had on our A.A. Fellowship
Review progress report regarding the translation of the book Alcoholics Anonymous (Fourth Edition) into plain and simple language.
Review progress report regarding development of a Fifth Edition of the Book Alcoholics Anonymous.
These are just a few of what will be discussed at the Conference. For a complete list of Agenda Items go to https://area93.org/ – Please contact your Groups General Service Representative (GSR) if you have any questions. Your GSR will be attending several meetings between now and April 24th to prepare our Delegate for Conference. It is the responsibility of your groups GSR to relay your group conscience to the Delegate.
District 22 has planned an Agenda Item Workshop to be held on Saturday March 26, on Zoom between 1 – 3 pm. Our Area 93 Delegate, Karla, will be attending. Everyone is welcomed.
