GSR Role

GSR Phamplet Volunteer:

When you’re a general service representative (G.S.R.) : At district meetings, you join with G.S.R.s from other groups. Perhaps you’ve already worked with an intergroup or central office, where groups band together to help alcoholics just in your locality. But your general service district is the second link in an entirely differ­ent chain, which extends much farther. Your dis­trict is one part of a general service area. With your fellow G.S.R.s, you elect a district commit­tee member, and all the D.C.M.s make up the area committee. Now, do you just sit back and let your D.C.M. take it from there? No! G.S.R.s stay very much in action in each of the 93 areas in the U.S. and Canada.

Volunteer:

Each member of Alcoholics Anonymous is but a small part of a great whole. A.A. must continue to live or most of us will surely die. Hence our common welfare comes first. But individual welfare follows close afterward.

Volunteer:

Final responsibility and ultimate authority for A.A. world services should always reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.
