Information is provide here for Area Officers, such as

Area Assemblies

Area Officers, District Committee Members (DCM's), and General Service Representatives (GSR's) meet 4 times a year to conduct area business. The Pre-Conference Session is a one-day session, held in March of each year, and is a precursor to the General Service Conference, which is normally held in New York in April of each year. The Area 81 General Service Delegate attends this conference on our behalf, and conveys the wishes of our area on important matters during this time. The Area Officers meeting takes place in August.

Area 81 holds two Area Assemblies which consist of a full weekend of business meetings, as well a "roundup" of AA meetings, speakers, panel discussions, workshops, and social activities for those who may not be involved in service work at the area or district level. These assemblies are held in May and October of each year, and can be hosted by any district that wishes to bid on one.

Elections of area officers are held in October of odd numbered years, with the new officers taking office in January following the election. Officers are elected for a two year term. Officers positions, and their responsibilities can be found in the General Service Manual and the Area 81 NB/PEI Service Structure and Operating Handbook.
