I wanted to share some information I have received from GSO over the last week.
I have received the “The Conference Final Report for 2021” in booklet form. I will be going around to meetings to give them to groups, but I can not attend all groups in Area 53 in a timely manner. Please email me if you would like some copies of the report and I will either deliver them or mail them to your group, my email is .
I am always available to give a report from my conference experience to your group, district, or committee.
Area 53 is the host for the 2022 Ohio State Convention, if your group or district would like to work on the committee it meets on the 4th Monday, 7:30 at COGF 651 W. Broad St Columbus, Oh 43215.
Below you can see that AAWA has been working on the passed agenda items from the conference.

Upcoming Event: East Central Regional Forum November 19-21, 2021
· PURPOSE: Regional Forums are hosted by the A.A. General Service Board and “open” to all A.A. members or to anyone interested in A.A.
· Regional Forums are designed to enhance communication and participation between A.A. members, the General Service Board, and staff and directors from the General Service Office and AA Grapevine. The East Central Regional Forum offers a virtual meeting place to ask questions and spark new ideas to help carry the A.A. message of hope to the still-suffering alcoholic.
· The event will be virtual, once I receive a flyer for registration, I will post it on our website. Forums are a great way to talk and ask questions of our GSO staff and Trustees.
In Love and Service,
