Meetings, dances and late night coffee
I first came to AA as a teenager and got sober in my early 20s. I had the great privilege to serve as an area delegate, and I am currently a Class B General Service trustee. I also had the opportunity to serve on an International Conference of Young People in AA (ICYPAA) host committee and its advisory council. While I have heard some say that ICYPAA and other young peoples’ AA conferences separate young people from the rest of AA, I believe it had the exact opposite effect on my AA path. Without learning about service at ICYPAA, and being encouraged by those I met through ICYPAA, I would have never become a GSR. At the end of the day, regardless of any past or current title I may have held or hold, the most important one will always be my role as a GSR.
