AA Service Structure

In North America, the Alcoholics Anonymous service structure is often depicted as an inverted triangle. At the bottom of the triangle are two corporate entities: A.A. World Services, Inc. and A.A. Grapevine, Inc. North America itself is partitioned into Regions, which in turn are partitioned into geographical Areas, which are further divided into Districts, and within each district — at the top of the triangle and top of the A.A. service hierarchy — are the individual A.A. groups.

          

A District is a geographical division within an area. The district provides a means for A.A. groups to have a voice in matters affecting other groups and A.A. as a whole.

Each District has a District Committee composed of AA group representatives called General Service Representatives, or GSRs. Each group may elect a GSR to attend district meetings and Area assemblies to represent their group and vote their group’s conscience. A GSR is an A.A. group’s link to A.A. outside of the group.

The District Committee elects at least one representative -- a District Committee Member (DCM) to serve as an essential link between the District committee and the Area. As a member of the Area Committee, the DCM is able to pass on the District’s collective conscience to the Area Delegate who represents the Area’s conscience at the annual General Service Conference attended by delegates from all areas in the U.S.A. and Canada.

Massachussetts is comprised of two geographic areas: Eastern Massachussetts (Area 30) and Western Massachusetts (Area 31). Each AA area may also have one or more Central Service or Intergroup offices to provide services to local AA groups. Massachusetts has the Eastern Massachussetts Central Service Office in Boston, the Worcester Area Intergroup Office in central Massachusetts, and the Western Massachussetts Intergroup Office in Holyoke. There is also a Berkshire Intergroup Office, a Cape Cod Intergroup Office, a Martha's Vineyard Intergroup and a Nantucket Intergroup.

There are a total of 93 Areas in North America. The A.A. Service Manual describes many of the concepts of service in Alcoholics Anonymous in much greater detail. Area 30 has an Area 30 Service Handbook for its service volunteers.
