A district is a geographical unit containing the right number of groups — right in terms of the committee member’s ability to keep in frequent touch with them, to learn their problems, and to find ways to contribute to their growth and well-being.
Districts are encouraged to carry on their operations in the manner most convenient and best suited to their individual locations and customs. It has been found most helpful to both Area and District for each District to provide representation to the Area.
The purpose of districts is to carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic. At monthly district meetings we discuss ways our groups are doing this and join together to carrying the message in ways individual groups might have difficulty doing alone. If groups are having trouble, we share our experience, strength and hope and look for ways to support each other. We also participate in Area 46 (New Mexico) activities and support our Area Delegate by helping them prepare for the annual General Service Conference.
