District 52 Service Information



GSR’s are elected by the members of their group.  They have the job of linking the groups with A.A. as a whole.  They represent the voice of the group conscience, reporting it to the district committee member and area conference delegate.  In turn, it may then be passed on to the annual General Service Conference in New York.  We realize that whatever “authority” there is in A.A. resides in the group conscience.  General qualifications, duties, and election procedures of the GSR are listed in the A.A. Service Manual.  Local duties include the following:


Attend district meetings, area assemblies and area workshops.


Assist the group in ordering literature.  A good supply of literature should be maintained.  Literature is one of the most effective ways to carry the message.


Inform alternate GSR of all activities/actions transpiring within the district.


Serve as central point of contact for all activities concerning the group.


Request copies of  “Meeting Directory” from district directories coordinator.


Inform the district directories coordinator of any changes with their group, i.e. – location, meeting time, etc.


District Committee Member (D.C.M.)

“The district committee member (D.C.M.) is an essential link between the group G.S.R. and the area delegate to the General Service Conference.  As leader of the district committee, made up of all G.S.R.s in the district, the D.C.M. is exposed to the group conscience of that district.  As a member of the area committee, he or she is able to pass on the district’s thinking to the delegate and the committee.” The A.A. Service Manual, p. S29 Reprinted With Permission



PI Comm. Guidelines

Like all of A.A., the primary purpose of members involved with public information service is to carry the A.A. message to the Alcoholic who still stuffers.  Working together, members of the 52nd District Public Information Committee convey A.A. information to the general public including the media. If you have an interest in this kind of service please contact Kris S 424-335-6562 D.C.M.
