25.04.2018 Delegate's Corner Comments Off on WEDNESDAY EVENING


Hello everyone, Today began with our tour to the General Service office. Meeting the staff was so very exciting as well as seeing their work areas. The best was seeing the Archives displayed of just about everything you could imagine pertaining to the history of what we hold dear to ourselves. These photographs and others will be seen when I give my report to you all. We began the conference process with each Pacific Region Area’s nominee for the next Pac. Region Trustee. The emotions of presenting our choice, Dolores E. was such a warm feeling from inside.  I am happy to announce that are next Pacific Region Trustee is Kathi F. from Area 3 Arizona. We all gathered together and called her to announce to her that she had been chosen. The voting process of the Agenda Topics began next and was very exciting as the GSC is using an electronic process for this. Time is so valuable and this is one way of saving that.  We were only able to cover two of the conference committee items and will resume with the remaining ones in the morning. Today I was able to share at the microphone our area’s views on these as well. I will say goodnight now, In Love and Service, Allen D.

Hello Area 92, It has been an interesting couple of days. We landed at Laguardia airport Thursday afternoon at 4:30 est., 2 1/2 hrs later we had made it to the Crown Plaza Hotel in Time Square. The sites were beyond amazing and the people well there’s a lot of them, everywhere. Friday morning when I had awakened my body was saying “NO” not yet! WE met with Joel C. in the lobby with all of the Pacific Region Delegates. Getting reacquainted with some old friends and making new ones was the highpoint of the day. We took a subway to the GSO and attended the 475 meeting.  Introductions, a 20 min. speaker and some time for questions and answers. What an amazing feeling stating that I was here from WSEA 92 as I’m sure all of the Panel 68 Delegates were feeling. We headed back to Time Square with Bob H. Area 17 Delegate from Hawaii and others. Best person to be with as he is originally from the New York area. Today we started off with a quick bite to eat and took the Historical tour throughout Brooklyn and Queens seeing a couple of great sites. I’ll keep away from to much description as this will be shared in my Delegates Report when we return. What an exciting Read the full article…

Good evening everyone, As the title states, It’s is the night before my flight to the 68th General Service Conference in New York City. I would like to thank the entire body of Area 92 for their work with the GSC Agenda Topics.  A Big “Thank You” to Dist. 26 for hosting our Pre- conference Assembly last weekend in beautiful Libby Montana. Appreciate all of the good feedback from each of our districts trusted servants. It’s been busy for myself in preparation for this unbelievable part of my journey. Getting last minute details taken care of for most of the day. Beginning my morning with GSC emails, Area 92 emails along with flight arrangements and yes, mowing the lawn. Oh ya, packing my luggage as well. My wife has been so excited that she has been packed for a week or two already.  I have had little difficulty in preparing for a weekend Assembly in the past, but for 9 days all the way across the nation hasn’t been easy. This being my first adventure east of Billings Montana has added more butterflies on top of the ones I have already been experiencing in the past week. My service sponsor asked me the other day, “Allen, what are you going to do at this years conference”? I thought for a Read the full article…

WSEA 92 Delegate Report – MARCH

Hello everyone, It has been quite busy for myself since the Agenda Topics and background information was released this past February. I would like to share with you what my role at the General Service Conference in New York this coming April will in tale. As a voting member of the conference I as your delegate will bring to its deliberations the experience and viewpoints of our area. I will represent Area 92 although I am not a representative of our area in the usual political sense; after hearing all points of view, and becoming fully informed during conference discussion, I will vote in the best interest of A.A. as a whole. Doing a lot these past few weeks getting deep into the 68th GSC Agenda Items background information in preparation for the conference. Beginning the process of scheduling Delegate Reports. These will be done with an accumulation of districts at a time. Focusing on delivering information out to the body, both in English and Spanish, as soon as I receive it has been an important part of my recent work. I would like to share a little on leadership, Bill wrote in “The language of the Heart” that “no society can function without able leadership in all its levels and A.A. can be no exception”. If we A.A.’s think Read the full article…

Delegates January update

Hello Area 92, I would first like to congratulate and welcome all the new DCM’s, Alt. DCM’s, GSR’s, Alt. GSR’s the appointed Standing Committee Chairs as well as our Elected Trusted Servants. Very excited and having the up-most confidence in your continued service to Area 92. It’s been busy for myself since being with you all at the January Quarterly in Yakima e. Having so many questions for our past Delegates, I was able to speak to Dolores E., Scott R., amd Rad M. in getting their take on a lot of interesting items, that are new to me, in this service position as Area 92 Delegate Panel 68.  I had shared with you that I had a conference call scheduled with my General Service Conference committee on Grapevine during our Quarterly. Well the UTC, Universal time clock, is something that will take some getting used to.  Very unfamiliar with this but making progress.  The Grapevine Committee chair had contacted me a couple days ago and we had a chance to get caught up on a few things.  The reason for this is that I will be serving on the Grapevine committee and a subcommittee on Archives when I get to New York. We will be having another conference call prior to the General Service Conference soon.  Having some experience Read the full article…

Closing Brunch 201S GSC

Well it has been a long week however a good one.  We got a lot of work done for Alcoholics Anonymous.  We finished our work around 8pm last night.  It was nice to be able to go out and watch the craziness in Times Square.  I attended the closing Brunch where the outgoing each gave their farewell talk.  It was also bittersweet as it was the last GSC that our GSO manager will preside over. She is from Western WA and is the first female General Service Manager. She will retire in October and rumor has it, she may be moving into Area 92. After the brunch this morning, my husband and I walked all over NYC. I can’t wait to tell you about the conference this year. I have lots of pictures. Well the shuttle is picking us up at 4:30am so I guess I’d better get some sleep. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity to represent area 92 at the GSC. In love and service, Dolores

Monday of Conference Week

This is going to be very short because I am very tired.  I began my day in a regular A.A. meeting from 7:30am – 8:30am.  Treatment/Special Needs-Accessibilities Conference Committee met from 9am – 12 noon followed by lunch.   This afternoon were GS Board Report-Q&A, A.A.W.S. Board Report and Q&A, Detailed Finance Report and Q&A, Panel 65 Area Highlights and sharing session.  Had quick PRAASA Delegate Advisory Board meeting and a quick meeting for Inventory Moderators and Recorders.  That pretty much covers my day.  Fred went to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island today.  Then he went to Bubba Gump Shrimp.  We are both blessed to be able to do what we are doing.  I am enjoying fellowship and service with my fellow delegates.  Thank you for allowing me to be of service.  Dolores

Opening Day of the GSC

By responding “present” this morning during roll call of the 65th Annual General Service Conference I officially became a member.  The Chair of the General Service Conference welcomed us.  The GSO Manager provided an Orientation of Conference Procedures.  The Conference Coordinator reviewed the week with us and then we were treated to two terrific presentations: 1) Report on the 23rd World Service Meeting held in Warsaw Poland presented by Bob, trusted-at-large/U.S. and 2) A.A Around the World presented by Rick, GSO staff who shared a miracle story of how A.A. began in Liberia.  More to come in my report back.  Following lunch there was presentation/discussion topics on “Our Common Welfare Through Gratitude in Action”.  Panels included:  Diversity in A.A, Our Heritage of Inclusion, Safety and Respect – Practicing the Principles Begins in Our Home Group, Safeguarding Our Traditions Through the Evolution of Technology and Inventory – Looking Back to Move Ahead.  This afternoon we will meet in our committees with the trustees committees who will report on their activities.  Since trustees serve on more than one committee and cannot be in two places at one time the meetings are staggered this afternoon only.  I am free for 2 hours and immediately following the trustees and conference committees meeting covering Treatment/Special Needs Accessibilities Committee will be the opening banquet.  Then back to Read the full article…
