Navajo Big Book Replacement CDs

All copies of the Navajo Big Book sold after Sept 1, 2018 have included an updated translation. There was an error in translation on Disc 12 (Chapter 11: A Vision for You) that was discovered by our members immediately after the release of the Navajo BB in May.

If you purchased a copy of the Navajo Big Book prior to September 2018, you can exchange your Disc 12 for a FREE replacement CD.  In Area 46, replacement CDs are available through the following sources:

  1. All Area Assemblies and the Area 46 Convention — See Dave L. at the Literature display.
  2. Albuquerque Central Office, 1921 Alvarado Dr. NE, Albuquerque NM
  3. District 9 business meetings or contact the D-9 DCM, Jerry F.

Just bring in your old Disc 12 and you will get a new one for FREE.  Each new CD is in a plastic case for safe transport.

A sticker is provided with each CD.   The sticker can be placed on the original Navajo Big Book jacket cover to show that the CD set has been updated.

The electronic version of Final Report is now available!  Just click here to read it.

The printed version of the Final Report has been distributed to all DCMs!  If you are a GSR of a registered group, you should have gotten a copy of the Final Report from your DCM.  All Area 46 officers and committee chairs can get their copy from the Area Chairperson.

Thank you  Bill L. for all of your help in getting and distributing these reports!

Communications Audit

The General Service Board commissioned an audit of our internal and external communications to see how well we are communicating within our Fellowship and to the public.  The audit began in 2017 and was completed in 2018.  You are welcome to read a summary of the report.

Delegate Report
January 2019

Happy New Year!  I’m looking forward to this coming year with such anticipation.  How can I, my homegroup, my district carry the message this year?  What will I do to support A.A. and ensure its future?

The December Assembly in Carlsbad was terrific.  Thank you to District 10 for your fabulous hospitality.  I am truly impressed with the work that is being done by all of the committees.  I am humbled to be working alongside such an amazing group of trusted servants.  If your District would like to hold a service-related workshop (i.e. CPC, PI, Grapevine, Corrections, BTG, etc.) the Area can help.  Simply call the committee chair or Eloy, our Area Chair, to get things rolling.

I reported a few new bits of information at the Assembly.  David L. and I submitted the Area’s request to start the 5th Edition of the Big Book and I have learned that another Area made a similar request.  A.A.W.S. has licensed the Meeting Guide app; it is up to each Service entity (Area, Central Office, etc.) to decide whether to participate in the app.  I was so pleased that the Assembly approved the Web Committee’s motion to participate in the Meeting Guide app – this will make finding meetings much easier for members visiting New Mexico.  As chair of the Conference Archives Committee, I’ve been invited to attend the Board weekend in January.  I’ve invited our Archives Chair and Archivist to go with me to New York; while I’m in meetings, they’ll be doing research in GSO’s Archives.

Congratulations to Lori P., past delegate.  The Assembly elected Lori to stand as our Area’s candidate for Southwest Regional Trustee!  I have submitted Lori’s resume to the Board’s Nominating Committee.  The final election will take place at the General Service Conference.

Your grateful servant,

Teresa J.
