Welcome to District 12!
We would like to encourage all District 12 GSR’s, Committee Chairs, volunteers
and home group members to attend
the upcoming pre-assembly Conference Agenda Forum to be held at
Ausbury United Methodist Church
10000 Candelaria NE
on March 17, 2018 from 1:00 – 3:00pm
We will be reviewing the agenda items that will be discussed at the pre-conference assembly. We want to express a concensus of our district about the agenda items to our Delegate (Teresa J.) for the conference in April.
This is open to all AAs in District 12 and the rest of the metro area that are interested in what’s going on in New York.
Topics to be discussed:
-Pamphlets for atheists/agnostics?
-Adding additional appendices to the Big Book?
-Making a 12 Steps/12 Traditions/12 Concepts Book?
-Censuring or reorganizing the General Service Board?
-Social Media and AA and Grapevine?
-Getting the message of recovery into the Armed Service?
-And many, many more . . .
Our next regular district meeting is on Saturday April 14, 2018
We meet at the Heights Club at 10:15AM
We still have lots of opportunities for service work. You do not have to be a GSR to be of service in the district!
The following committee chair positions are open:
Archives – collects flyers for events, helps compile group histories, and interviews AA “old-timers” (people with 25+ years of sobriety) for the district archives
CPC/PI – CPC – Facilitates carrying the AA message to professionals (lawyers, judges, doctors, therapists, clergy, etc.) that come into contact with active alcoholics. Brings them literature and opens dialogue to what AA does and doesn’t don’t do. PI – carrying the message to the public at large. Facilitates presentations at schools, businesses, hospitals, and law enforcement agencies. Distributes literature and opens dialogue to what AA does and doesn’t do. In our district they are combined into one position.
Grapevine – Provides information and subscription forms to AA groups so that members can receive the Grapevine/La Vina. Also sells GV books and holds workshops on issues regarding the GV.
Literature – Provides catalogs and ordering information to groups so that they have AA approved pamphlets, books, CDs, and videos. In rural areas, the literature committee acts analogously to a central office (except for keeping an open phone line): a repository or receiver of AA stuff for groups to draw from
Accessibility – A relatively new position that functions to increase accessibility for alcoholics with “special needs”. This has a broad function: from creating lists of meetings with childcare or are child-friendly for single parents, all the way to providing suggestions on how to facilitate the sight or hearing impaired. Trying to find ways for people with special needs (whatever they may be) to get to or stay in the rooms.
Upcoming Events: Fundraiser for SWACYPAA Bid Committee on March 25, 2018 from 6:30-8:00PM at the Heights Club.
Our trusted servants are:
1) DCM – Danny F.
2) Alt-DCM – Alice M.

4) Treasurer – Mike L.
Join us and help us plan new workshops and district wide events,
or just come to hear what’s happening and see some new faces!
