California Northern Interior Area 07 (CNIA 07) has an annual Winter Assembly this weekend, January 15 and 16. The Winter Assembly is where the General Service Representatives (GSRs) from any Area 07 group gather to discuss ideas for AA. Any AA member can attend, but if a vote needs to be taken, only your group’s GSR may vote.
The GSR Preamble
We are the General Service Representatives. We are the link in the chain of communications for our groups with the General Service Conference and the world of AA.
We realize the Ultimate Authority in A.A. as 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 groups 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 groups and A.A. as a whole.
Gary Tune was a long time member of AA, and passed December 2, 2021. The Nooners Group meeting on January 21 will be a time of remembrance for “My name is Gary Tune, and I am a grateful recovered alcoholic”.
It is with great sadness that we report that Bob Hinton, the office manager at Central Office and a stalwart member of AA for 46 years, passed away on Sunday, January 2nd.
The monthly General Service Meeting is held the first Wednesday of the month. If you group does not have a General Service Representative (GSR) but would like to be a part of the decision making process within AA, your group should elect a GSR and send them to this meeting. This meeting is via Zoom.
