The Inner City District is an AA service committee for AA groups in metropolitan Melbourne, Australia. The committee is comprised of General Service Representatives (GSR) who are elected by each local AA group, plus the elected ICD Chairperson, the District Committee Member (DCM), Alternate DCM, Secretary, Treasurer and other positions with portfolios that help support the work of the District, such as Public Information.
The DCM (Chair of Inner City District) represent the District at Area level. We are the voice of the group in the AA service structure linking the group to the Area and to the region, Australia and AA as a whole. Our primary purpose is to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
Inner City District voted in October 2016 to join Area F. Area F was an Area originally made up of groups in the Peninsula area but was inactive for a long time. Area F is currently compromised of groups from the Inner City District and from Peninsula District and it is anticipated it will grown organically. Area F has elected a delegate who was accepted by the Conference committee.
Many of the groups who consider themselves to be part of Inner City District support Area F, although grout autonomy prevails. The Area Committee is responsible for the health of the Conference structure and, by the same token, for growth and harmony in our beloved Fellowship.
An Area Committee is composed of all District Committee Members (DCMs), one from each District in the Area, whom the GSRs have elected to represent their District, and the Alternate DCMs. There should be enough Districts, each with its DCM, to ensure good communication between the Area Committee and the Groups. The Area Delegate and the Alternate Delegate also serve on the Area Committee.
The Inner City District usually meets on the first Monday of the month at the Gahan Centre, Grattan Street, Prahran at 7.30pm. Please follow our posts to make sure you find out if there are any changes.
All Group Service Representatives (GSR) and observers welcome. Get involved!
