DELEGATE’S DAY OF SHARING (3/3/18)
What is this? In a few words: one of the most important service events in A.A. It’s a fascinating day devoted entirely to the Delegate’s Questionnaire. Presentations will be made on each question, providing the background on why the question is on General Service Conference’s agenda in April.
Who should attend? GSRs. GSRs. GSRs. Alternate GSRs. DCMCs and DCMs and their alternates. All A.A. members in service positions in SENY. Any A.A. member is also welcome to attend.
Why is it so important for a GSR to attend? Your group has a voice in A.A. and you are essential to that voice being heard. As the GSR, you are asked to bring the Delegate’s Questionnaire to your group, facilitate a discussion, and deliver your group’s conscience to our Delegate, John W., before he goes to the General Service Conference. Your group depends on you to know what’s behind these questions. The Delegate’s Day of Sharing on March 3rd will help prepare you for exactly that.
