It has been a privilege to serve as your P63/Area53 Delegate and share with you my activities ( in the past three months) as I tried to carry the message per Chapter Six in the A.A. Service Manual.
As Program Chair of this 2014 Mini Conference I have met monthly with the Area 53 Mini-Conference planning committee, met with Deer Creek State Park and Salt Fork State Park hotel officials to see that Mini Conference is well hosted this year and locked in through 2015 and 2016.
I have tried to keep the Area trusted servants and interested AAs informed about the efforts your General Service Office, AA Grapevine, and General Service Board are doing to reach out to the still suffering alcoholic. If you want to be included in my e-mail updates and the like please e-mail me at delegate(at)area 53aa(dot)org. Send me your name, tele # and e-mail address and you will be included with all the Central and Southeastern Ohio trusted servants and interested AAs.

I was honored to represent Area 53 Central and Southeastern Ohio in New York at the January 31 – February 3 General Service Board (GSB) Weekend. As you know I will represent the feelings of AAs in Area 53 at the 64th General Service Conference (GSC) where AA decides how to best carry the message as a whole.
I was chosen at the 63rd General Service Conference(GSC) to be the Delegate Chair for this year’s GSC Committee on Cooperation with the Professional Community(CPC). That meant I would be a guest of the General Service Board (GSB) and the General Service Office(GSO) the weekend of January 31 – February 3, 2014.
That weekend was a combination orientation to the chair’s role and a weekend of sharing and learning more about our AA yearly Conference to be held April 27 – May 3, 2014. Continue reading
The Agenda for the 64th General Service Conference is official. Please let me know if any officer, DCM or Standing Committee Chair would like to get a digital version of a particular agenda item with background material included.
At our Area 53 Mini-Conference on March 7-9 at Salt Fork we will hold a group conscience on items selected from this list. Any group, district or interested AA has the right to share feelings, opinions, thoughts and experience on any of the proposals that I your trusted servant will vote on in New York.
Come to the Mini-Conference and you will get useful information from past delegates, GSO staff, General Service Board Trustees and AAs just like yourself.
