Committee positions:

Inner City District is looking for an alternate District Committee Member. The District Committee Member (DCM) is the vital link between the group’s GSR and the Area service structure. A DCM is an AA member who usually has served as a GSR and whom the other GSRs wish to make responsible for their district activities. An able, experienced GSR makes a good DCM provided he or she has the time and desire to work closely with groups within the district.

The District Committee Member position has the below requirements:

  • A period of continuous sobriety of at least 4 years.
  • Attending monthly District meetings.
  • Chairs monthly district meeting and reports at monthly area meeting.
  • Receives information from the group level through GSRs and through frequent contacts with groups in the district.
  • Keeps GSRs informed about Conference and Area activities.
  • Acquaints GSRs with the AA Service Manual and other AA literature.
  • Strongly encourages all GSRs and alternates to attend area assemblies.
  • Regularly attends groups in the district, encouraging groups that have no GSR to elect one and send him or her to the monthly district meeting.
  • Works with DCMs in other districts exchanging ideas on how to improve communication between DCMs and GSRs and to inspire GSRs on how to effectively pass information on to their groups.
  • A detailed hand over sheet and support will be provided.
