District News & Service

The District 4 Service Committees serve a vital role in our community. They serve as a liaison with Professionals in our community. They serve as a contact source for Hospitals, Schools, Institutions and Treatment Centers. These committees are the people who put the pamphlets in offices, as well they manage the 12 step phone calls. AA’s attraction rather than promotion is largely influenced by the impression our committee people leave when they are interacting with individuals and at community events. We can not have a large presence in our community if we do not have volunteers to help the service committees. Please talk to your sponsor or service sponsor and see if you should be on a committee. Healthy active committees are one way of insuring that the hand of AA will always be there and for that we are all responsible.

As the new Service Term begins and Service Committees are rotating there is a need for volunteers on many of the following committees.

The 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous

  1. Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon A.A. unity.
  2. For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
  3. The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking.
  4. Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole.
  5. Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
  6. An A.A. group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the A.A. name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
  7. Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
  8. Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers.
  9. A.A., as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.
  10. Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the A.A. name ought never be drawn into public controversy.
  11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.
  12. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
