Our Mission

Each Group has but one primary purpose – to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers. Alcoholics Anonymous p.540 (Australian Big Book 2nd Ed.)

Area D, Southern Region is a part of the Alcoholics Anonymous, General Service Conference Structure of Australia. As such we fully participate in the General Service Conference. We also support the General Service Office (GSO) of AA, Sydney in any way we are able.

Bordered by the Yarra river, the Area includes the Western and Northern suburbs of Melbourne and extends to include other major  cities such as Geelong, Ballarat, Wyndham and regional centres such as Daylesford.

2018 AA Structure Inventory – your input needed!

One of the major outcomes of the 2017 General Service Conference was to conduct a structural inventory of AA in Australia, since no changes have occurred to the structure in nearly 50 years.

A discussion paper has been drafted, which combines the input from each of the regions that was given during workshops at the 2017 General Service Conference.  We really need feedback to be able to further shape any recommended changes to the future of the AA structure.

Can you please:

  1. Download the discussion paper and read carefully
  2. Complete the online survey we have set up for capturing feedback
