This report has been a privilege and a re-discovery process for me.
In re-reading A.A.s history of Service in the Service Manual and in A.A. Comes of Age I’ve learned there is more to treasure than I have ever before realized. I recommend all trusted servants invest more time reading about A.A. history.
Concept 12, The General Warranties were originally presented to A.A. in Article 12 of the Original Conference Charter. The original charter for the General Service conference is found on S94 of the A.A. Service Manual. Article 12 of the Charter, The General Warranties of the Conference, were presented to the A.A. International Convention in St. Louis in 1955. For details read pages 223–234 in A.A. Comes of Age.
