About the AA Service Structure

In North America, Alcoholics Anonymous is organized into a hierarchy often referred to as an inverted triangle. At the bottom of the triangle are two corporate entities: A.A. World Services and A.A. Grapevine that, through their governing trustees and directors, comprise the General Service Board. North America itself is partitioned into eight Regions, which in turn are comprised of 93 geographical Areas, which in turn are comprised of Districts, and within each district – at the top of the triangle – are the A.A. groups.

          

A District is a geographic partition that provides an opportunity for the A.A. groups in that vicinity to have a voice in matters affecting local A.A. groups and A.A. as a whole. Each District has a District Committee composed of representatives from the local A.A. groups, called General Service Representatives (GSRs). Each group may elect one GSR. The GSR is the link between the group and A.A. outside the group. The GSR attends district and area meetings and area assemblies to represent their group.

The District Committee elects at least one representative -- a District Committee Member (DCM) to serve as an essential link between the district and its Area. As a member of the Area committee, the DCM represents a District's conscience to the Area Delegate who, in turn, represents an Area's conscience at the annual General Service Conference which is attended by all the area delegates from the U.S.A. and Canada.

Within the AA service structure, Massachusetts is divided into two areas: Eastern Massachusetts (Area 30) and Western Massachusetts (Area 31).

Each area also has Central Service Offices or Intergroup Offices that provide services to the local A.A. groups. The Boston Central Service Office is located in Boston and the Western Massachusetts Intergroup Office is located in Holyoke. There is also a Worcester Area Intergroup Office, a Berkshire Intergroup Office, a Cape Cod Intergroup Office, a Martha's Vineyard Intergroup and a Nantucket Intergroup.

In North America there are a total of 93 service Areas. The A.A. Service Manual describes many of the concepts of service in Alcoholics Anonymous in much greater detail. Area 30 also has an Area 30 Service Handbook for its service volunteers.
