The questions below will be considered at the September 2016 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:
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?
