. . .We May Create Service Boards. . .

From the October 1956 Grapevine

To many AA members it is not clearly known just how the service boards mentioned in Tradition Nine serve us, and as a matter of fact, some members may wonder, do we need them at all? It is quite understandable that the publishing company is needed, and the Grapevine too, but these are both self-supporting businesses. In addition we have general service headquarters which is supported by the groups, but the conception of the nature of its services is pretty misty to many members.

Let me present a form of service offered by general service headquarters. I choose to present it because I am familiar with it, but to the most members it is quite unknown.
