Event Details

Greetings Members of Area 83.

Each spring, the General Service Conference takes place in New York. The Conference is made up of 93 Area Delegates, the Trustees and Directors of A.A. World Services and Grapevine, and the General Service Office Staff.
The General Service Conference is the annual business meeting for Alcoholics Anonymous and the focus of the Conference are the Agenda items for each of the 13 Conference committees. The major work of the Conference is done during these committee meetings where comprehensive background information is reviewed and deliberated for each agenda item.

Conference committees discuss numerous issues of interest to the Fellowship as a whole and come up with recommendations. Some recommendations result in Conference Advisory Actions. Not all Conference discussions become Advisory Actions. Some important matters addressed at the Conference result in “additional considerations” – more informal suggestions and guidance on how best to carry the message.
“As voting members of the Conference, Delegates bring to its deliberations the experiences and viewpoints of their own areas.” “Delegates are charged with understanding the experiences, viewpoints, and group conscience of their areas, while assuming responsibility for the

U.S./Canada Conference as a whole” (Service manual page 32 2021-23 edition). You, as a member of Area 83 play an important role in providing our Delegate with experiences and viewpoints to take to the General Service Conference (GSC).

We are inviting you to be part of the decision-making process and to share your input on the items that will be discussed. Your views and ideas will be collected and shared with our Delegate who will represent Area 83 at the 73 rd Annual General Service Conference 1 April 2023.
