2016 General Service Conference Highlights

On Sunday morning, April 17, 2016, the 66th General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous kicked off a week of discussion, consideration and voting on topics of broad interest throughout the Fellowship.

Consisting of 134 voting members, the Conference is composed of 93 delegates from the U.S. and Canada, along with 25 members of the General Service Board (GSB) of Trustees, the AA World Services and Grapevine Corporate Boards, and 16 members of the AA staff of the General Service Office (GSO), the Grapevine and La Viña. The Conference has been meeting annually since 1950 to deliberate on a wide range of matters affecting the Fellowship as a whole. As The AA Service Manual explains it in Concept Two, the Conference is “the actual voice and effective conscience for our whole Society.”
