"By choosing its most qualified man or woman as G.S.R., a group helps secure its own future — and the future of A.A. as a whole.”
When you’re a general service representative (G.S.R.): You are linking your home group with the whole of A.A. In 1950, a new type of trusted servant, group representative,” was suggested to help in the selection of delegates to the newly formed General Ser vice Conference. By 1953, the job of group representative was also seen as a good means of exchanging up-to-date information be-tween in individual groups and “Headquarters” (now the General Ser vice Office). That’s still an important side of your work. But now, as general service representative, you have an even bigger responsibility: You transmit ideas and opinions, as well as facts; through you, the group conscience becomes a part of “the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship,” as expressed in the General Ser vice Conference. Like everything else in A.A., it works through a series of simple steps. (For the complete picture in detail, read The A.A. Service Manual.)
