Each group/meeting should have a GSR to represent the group’s conscience concerning the functions of AA as a whole.
Join us to learn more about what’s happening in our District and how you can get involved. If you or someone you know is interested in getting involved with service work, please attend the next scheduled GSR meeting to learn more.
ALL ARE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND!
If your group doesn’t have a GSR – get involved and be the voice of your group.
You transmit ideas and opinions, as well as facts; through you, the group conscience becomes a part of “the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship,’ as expressed in the General Service Conference. Like everything else in A.A., it works through a series of simple steps. (For the complete picture in detail, read The A.A. Service Manual.) (source: G.S.O. General Service Representative Pamphlet), see link.
Q: How do I get to become a new G.S.R.?
A: The simplest process:
- The A.A. Group Elects a new G.S.R. (group conscious) and can also elect an alternate.
- If the A.A. Group had a G.S.R., use Update Group Form F-28
- If the A.A. Group did not have a G.S.R., use New Group Form F-30
- Email the completed form to the follow three: G.S.O. email@example.com, Area 93 firstname.lastname@example.org, and District 7 registrar@area93District7.org
- G.S.R.s will get a “G.S.R. Kit” mailed to the address on the form.
- The G.S.R. now has a vote in Area 93 Assembly Meetings (meets quarterly) and District 7 Meetings (meets monthly.)
Q: Will I receive material to get started?
A: Once you’re listed with G.S.O. as a new G.S.R., they will automatically send you a Kit. You can see the contents of the G.S.R. Kit by clicking on the link below while waiting for your hard copy via USPS.
“We are the General Service Representatives. We are the link in the chain of communication for our groups with the General Service Conference and the world of A.A. We realize the ultimate authority is a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. As trusted servants, our job is to bring information to our groups in order that they can reach an informed group conscience. In passing along this group conscience, we are helping to maintain the unity and strength so vital to our fellowship. Let us, therefore, have the patience and tolerance to listen while others share, the courage to speak up when we have something to share, and the wisdom to do what is right for our group and A.A. as a whole.”

The Seventh Tradition states: “Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” While contributions cover each group’s rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition is essential at every level of A.A. service.
A.A. is made up of 93 areas inside the U.S. and Canada. We are part of Area 93. Each Area is subdivided into Districts. We are in District 7.
In District 7, many Committees and Liaisons are committed to bringing the message of A.A. carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to our communities in different formats and venues.
