District Statement of Purpose

DISTRICT STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The Primary Purpose of the AA District is the same as of all AA activity – to carry the message to the alcoholic
who still suffers, wherever he/she may be.The District seeks ways and means of accomplishing this goal by serving as
a forum for sharing the experience,strength and hope of the General Service Representatives who come together each month from the groups in the District.
Experience teaches us that developing a sound structure enables us to carry our message more effectively to
those alcoholics still suffering in our community, and to remain strong and united for those of the next generation.
DISTRICT MEETINGS serve the following purposes:
1. To provide support, guidance and information for the GSRs
2. To maintain communication links between groups, members and AA as a whole
3. To suggest, discuss and plan means of carrying the message to those alcoholics still suffering in the district community
4. To seek ways to improve the structure and unity of the District groups.
These goals are achieved through discussion, workshops, sharing sessions, use of service literature and audio-visual material, visits by guests from other AA service areas, sharing groupproblems, etc. The emphasis shall
always be on GSR sharing.
