Conference questions 2018 have been released

What is the Purpose of Conference?

The General Service Conference (Great Britain) of Alcoholics Anonymous is the guardian of the services and of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of AA in Great Britain. Tradition Two states that the only authority in AA is that which expresses itself through the Group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants who do not govern. This Tradition is the basic authority for all AA services, whether for Groups, Intergroups, Regions or for the Fellowship as a whole. The General Service Conference therefore begins with the Group conscience. It also leads back to the Group, since the Group has final responsibility not just for initiating, but for implementing the decisions agreed upon by Conference. The General Service Conference is the practical means by which the Group conscience in Britain can express itself in matters that concern the Fellowship as a whole. The existence of Conference is moreover a guarantee that the Fellowship will be able to function under all conditions. It is, in effect, the successor to the founders of AA, ensuring the continuity of the work within the framework of the Twelve Traditions.

PI report on recent AA Awareness campaign

Following negotiations with NHS Engage we were invited to put up a stall at their Health and Well being seminar held on Tuesday 5th December. To be fair, we didn’t get many users but we achieved a good result in terms of visibility and reducing stigma. Thanks to the efforts of two well spoken, well dressed, professional, middle aged female alcoholics! This disease does not discriminate!
