The questions below will be considered at the September 2017 assembly.

Reflecting on the Area 53 Guidelines (Article II), is the “Area 53 Assembly of the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous” achieving its “primary purpose?” Is it necessary for it to improve?

From the Area 53 Guidelines, our purpose of the:

1) To support the General Service Conference and its members in their roles as provider of A.A. World Services and as guardian of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.
2) To elect, and support, a Delegate to the General Service Conference.
3) To provide communication and encourage unity within Area 53.
4) To assist in the development and communication of an informed group conscience.

How well does the assembly facilitate the hearing and resolution of minority appeals/reports? How could it be improved?

How might the guidelines be revised in essence or wording to more effectively and relevantly guide our trusted servant?

The questions below will be considered at the June 2017 assembly.

Reflecting on the Area 53 Guidelines (Article IX) is the Area 53 Mini-Conference Committee achieving its “primary purpose?”

From the Area 53 Guidelines:

9) Mini Conference Committee
a) Shall report regularly to the area assembly meeting.
b) Shall plan and organize the area mini conference.
c) Shall be chaired by the area 53 alternate delegate.
d) Area 53 alternate treasurer shall serve as mini conference treasurer.

What improvements could be considered to make sure agenda items and conference activities have a broader appeal (attract more members to attend)? Improvements must be practical.

How well does the mini-conference committee communicate to the Area membership about why we have this conference and how it works? How can they better communicate that the mini-conference is more than one weekend in March?

How can we improve the time allotted at the mini-conference weekend for committees, reports, presentations, and “free time” to ensure thorough deliberations that effectively inform our Delegate?
