About general Service Representative

“The General Service Representative (GSR) has the job of linking his or her home group with A.A. as a whole. The GSR represents the voice of the group conscience, reporting the group’s thoughts to the District Committee Member (DCM) and to the Delegate, who passes them on to the conference. The communication is a two-way street, making the GSR responsible for bringing back to the group Conference Actions that affect unity, health, and growth. Only when a GSR keeps the group informed, and communicates the group conscience, can the Conference truly act for A.A. as a whole.”

Through your elected District Committee Member (DCM) and the Oregon Area Delegate, you will become the two- way link between your group and the world of AA as a whole. As such, you and your fellow GSRs all over the world have become the key to the unity of AA.  You will learn more about General Service, which is based on THE THREE LEGACIES of RECOVERY, as outlined in the Twelve Steps; UNITY, as outlined in the Twelve Traditions; and SERVICE, as outlined in the AA Service Manual Combined With Twelve Concepts For World Service.

By your active presence in General Service, you will be helping to ensure that AA will still be here for future generations of suffering alcoholics.

More information about the role of a GSR can be found in the AA General Service manual and in the GSR pamphlet by GSO.
