The Twelve Concepts for World Service were written by A.A.’s co-founder Bill W., and were adopted by the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1962. The Concepts are an interpretation of A.A.’s world service structure as it emerged through A.A.’s early history and experience. 

Area 31 meets on the 1st Thursday of every month at 7:30pm to read and discuss the concept of the month. We will be joining this meeting via phone at the Intergroup Office.

Please join us.

Concept 1

Final responsibility and ultimate authority for A.A. world services should always reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.
