Dear Area D group / members
The Area D Southern Region Committee would like to invite you to a event where we will be taking an inventory of the Area – but it will be so much more!!
Attendance at Area D Assemblies has been steadily dropping. Out of 5 currently known Districts in Area D (which not cover all of Area D) , just 2 are active. Earlier this year, the Calder District, which had been operating for 35 years, closed.
In October 2018, Area D participated in the Southern Regional Festival, which attracted 70-80 members, was a great educations forum, and received very good feedback.
On Sunday 27th October – Area D has decided to hold an inventory of the Area to understand why, and how, to make general service and greater participation in Area D attractive and sustainable, and therefore contribute to the healthy future of AA as a whole. Without a functioning Area, there is very little opportunity for groups, and therefore members, to have a say in AA. All suffer, including the suffering alcoholic, if this communication link from the member to the general service structure is broken.
After the success of the previous full day event, we are taking it beyond sitting around a table answering the questions. There will be:
- Interactive discussions run by members who are professional facilitators
- Guest speakers telling their stories about their service experience
- Catered lunch
And because we would like as many groups as possible to have the opportunity to participate in the day, and last year’s event was all about AA into the future, we are offering video conferencing facilities for the main presentations and discussions of the day.
The Committee would like to serve the Area well. We need your input and participation to do this.
All the details are in the attached invitation and over the page. If you have any questions before registering, you can contact one of these members:
