Delegate’s Report 64th General Service Conference Alcoholics Anonymous

Area 53 Assembly – June 1, 2014

To the Assembly and to all the groups in central and southeastern Ohio thank you for your trust in me. It is my belief that everything we do in general service or AA as a whole has a primary purpose of reaching out to the suffering alcoholic. The primary goal is to help make more and better 12-step work possible. Bill W. wrote “We must carry the message else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.”

It is my hope the General Service Conference (GSC) and AA as a whole continue to carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic where ever alcoholics reach out for help. If you wonder how the General Service Conference, an AA group, district, or Area 53 event or activity is carrying the message, please ask me and I will try to explain. The GSC was held in Rye Town, NY, April 27 – May 3. There were 34 conference advisory actions that received 2/3 vote of the 133 voting members of the Conference. The following is a summary.
