Alabama/NW Florida Area

“An area may be part of a state or province, or all of it, or may include parts of more than one state or province, depending on the size and needs of the A.A. population. In any case, the area holds an important middle position in the Conference structure—through the elected delegate, it participates in A.A. worldwide, while through the D.C.M.s and G.S.R.s, it is close to the local scene.”

District 8 is part of Area 1—Alabama/NW Florida Area.

Area 1 meets quarterly (typically January, April, July, and October) at the Clarion Inn & Suites University Center in Auburn, Alabama. The April Assembly is a pre-conference assembly, with breakout sessions and workshops devoted to the upcoming General Service Conference. Election Assemblies are in October of even years.

Next Area Assembly:
April 13-15, 2018

Come enjoy opportunities all weekend for Service, Unity, and Recovery. The coffee’s pretty good, too! All members of Alcoholics Anonymous in Area 1 (or visiting!) are invited and encouraged to attend the quarterly meeting of Area 1.

Area 1 is composed of the A.A. groups in Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. If you’re not sure what Area you’re in, ask your group’s G.S.R. (General Service Representative).

Voting members of the Assembly for all votes of the Area conscience (Area Service Meeting) are:

    • Group Service Representatives, or (in their absence) their alternates
    • District Committee Members, or (in their absence) their alternates
    • Area Committee Chairs, or (in their absence) their alternates
    • Area Officers

Requirements to vote may differ in each of the standing committees, as well as the Agenda Committee, the DCM Committee, and the Intergroup/Central Office Liaison Committee. Please ask if you are unsure — asking for help is a GOOD thing.
