About the
Mini-Conference

The Area 53 Mini-Conference is an opportunity for GSRs, DCMs, service committee members and interested AAs to shape the Area conscience and learn more about the issues being addressed at the General Service Conference coming up in April in New York.

 

Mimicking the General Service Conference structure as much as possible, attendees each become “delegates” to the mini-conference. They are assigned to committees, where they discuss and vote on the same topics being addressed at the Conference. Committees then present a summary of their discussions and votes to the broader group to better inform our delegate as he/she prepares to represent us in New York. On Saturday night, GSO staff members will share their experience, strength and hope with mini-conference attendees.

 

The Area 53 Mini-Conference also provides an excellent opportunity to share with others involved in service and learn more about the various ways Area 53 helps carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic.
