So what is AA Grapevine Inc?

A trustee helps explain what one of our three corporations does and how it serves the Fellowship

Over the next few months I will dissect the three corporations of Alcoholics Anonymous, of which there are three: The General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous, Inc. (GSB), and two affiliate corporations of the GSB—AA Grapevine, Inc. (AAGV) and Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. (AAWS). Being an affiliate means that some (in this case, all) of its stock is owned by the parent company.

All three of these corporations have the same, basic mission: to serve the AA Fellowship.
