Welcome to the Delegate's Corner

Information about and from our Area Delegate.

Delegate's Corner - September, 2018

I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a little cooler weather (sans Hurricanes of course)...

My schedule has been a little more hectic than usual with the necessity of travel north for 2 funerals and a family reunion. However, my schedule for workshops fit in anyway. I participated in a second Service Manual and Concepts workshop in District 19 along with several panel members. I was invited to participate at the Florida State Convention on a panel with the theme "Recipe for Serenity" my portion was how the Traditions created serenity in my life. Others focused on the steps and the concepts. For sheer fun while being educational, District 15's service fair was well attended presented by Area Chair Annette, 7 Service Coordinators, and me. We love being invited by you!

As for what is going on at AAWS, the dates for the 2019 General Service Conference is confirmed for May 19-25, 2019. Due to a discrepancy with the dates, our new policy on polling was given good practice. The poll had 100% participation.

The new website design continues with discussion and strategies continuing on the development of an app for AAWS/GSO to be launched in conjunction with the new AA website which would include the Meeting Guide, Big Book, Daily Reflections and alert/messaging capabilities.

Design of the book Our Great Responsibility: A Selection of Bill W.'s General Service Conference Talks, 1951-1970 is close to completion. Estimated availability in all three languages in early 2019.

Conference Final Report delivery has taken longer than hoped for two reasons:
(1) The report is considerably longer due to Conference actions regarding staff not editing Area Highlights nor Committee Considerations (which had been summarized in years past).
(2) Also, the 3 new pamphlets approved by the conference, a bevy of other corrections and updates and every other year edition of the Service manual. These factors were on top of the already rigorous schedule of regular reprints, newsletters, book updates and revisions. We expect delivery the last week in September.

Watch for the digital version anonymity-protected to be available sometime next week (week of September 10).

Thank you all for the work you do for your groups, districts, area, AA as a whole and of course the still suffering alcoholic!
