What is a G.S.R.
A General Service Representative (GSR) is the link between an AA group and AA as a whole.
On page S26 of the AA Service Manual, we find: “The GSR represents the voice of the group conscience, reporting the group’s thoughts to the district committee member (DCM) and to the delegate, who passes them on to the Conference.”
It is recommended that GSRs have at least two years of sobriety, time to commit to meetings, and the ability to listen to differing points of view.
Suggestions for a new GSR
One of our first recommendations is to return to this website so you can view agendas, minutes and reports from the Area 28 committee.
Here are some helpful reading material that may be helpful.
- GSR – May Be the Most Important Job in AA
- Is Your Group Linked to AA as a Whole?
- Your AA General Service Office
- The AA Service Manual (Combined With Twelve Concepts for World Service)
- Circles of Love and Service
- AAs Legacy of Service
- AA Guidelines
- Service Material from G.S.O.
Attend the District meeting where your group is located.
