The questions below will be considered at the December 2016 assembly.
December Assembly: Reflecting on the Area 53 Guidelines (Articles II & XII), is our Area attracting alcoholics from different backgrounds to available service opportunities? Are we seeing a good cross-section of our community, including those with special needs? Do our practices honor our heritage of inclusion and achieve diversity within our A.A. Community?
From the Area 53 Guidelines: Article II – above
From the Area 53 Guidelines: Article XII
- At the September Area 53 Assembly Meeting of each even-numbered year, the Area Assembly will hold elections of the Area Delegate, Alternate Delegate, Chairperson, Alternate Chairperson, Registrar, Alternate Registrar, Secretary, Alternate Secretary, Treasurer, and Alternate Treasurer.
- The term of service for these individuals will be for two years and will begin January 1 of the following year.
- At the beginning of this even-numbered election year, the Chairperson will ask the immediate Past Delegate to chair an ad hoc nomination committee to identify, secure, and submit names of qualified nominees.
Do our trusted servants stick with us, or does the turnover seem excessive? If so, why? What can we as an Area do to retain our trusted servants?
How is our Area fulfilling its responsibility to the Seventh Tradition?
