Literature Committee Chair

The Literature Chair is responsible for providing groups in our district information about AA conference approved literature and ways to order the literature. You can give information about literature available during our district meetings so that GSR’s can take the information back to their individual groups.

The main responsibilities are:

  • Attend all District 12 meetings
  •  Make a monthly report of activities and information related to literature
  •  Attend Area Assembly Literature meetings and workshops, if possible, and report back at the district’s monthly meeting
  • Educate groups and individuals about the wide range of conference approved literature available to help carry the message of sobriety.
  • Provide displays at District 12 events and events in the district as needed.
  • Follow A.A. guidelines as printed and released by the GSO

Ad-hoc Accessibilities Committee Chair

 This position is still being defined in our District Information update. This committee’s goal is to help increase awareness in making A.A. in our district available to everyone who has a desire to quit drinking.There are tools developed to help groups identify their own accessibility strengths and weaknesses, and a lot of literature and resources to bring awareness of the needs of hearing-impaired, mobility challenged, blind/visually impaired, home-bound and more.

El Farolito Representative

Our El Farolito representative attends district meetings and provides the El Farolito, Area 46’s newsletter, with information about district upcoming events or activities as well as providing information on district groups.


  1. Encouraged to attend all district meetings and perform such acts and duties as are customary to this office
