INFORMATION FOR Group Service Reps (GSRs)

The General Service Representative (GSR) is the link between the Group and AA as a whole and is probably the most important single role in the whole AA structure. The GSR represents the voice of the Group Conscience, reporting the Group’s wishes to the Area through the District Committee Member (DCM) and to the Area Delegate through Area Committees and Assemblies, from where it is passed on to the Australian General Service Conference.
