District - A geographic sub-division within a General Service Area created in order to come closer to the individual A.A. Group. It is here that each group in the District sends elected GSR’s to carry its group conscience forward on the chain to the Conference and to receive back important information from A.A. as a whole. Area 59 has forty-seven (47) districts.

Area -
A geographical division within a State or Province. Normally there is one Area for each State, except where there might be a densely populated State or Province. Western PA is Area 60 and we are in Area 59, Eastern PA.

It is customary at the start of each new Panel (every2 years)to review past practices and to vote on those that we wish to continue. Here are the latest recommendations for District 25 operations. District 25 Recommendations

The GSR Preamble

We are the General Service Representatives.   We are the link in the chain of communication for our groups with the General Service Conference and the world of A.A.  We realize the ultimate authority is a loving God as he may express Himself in our Group Conscience.  As trusted servants, our job is to bring information to our groups in order that they can reach an informed group conscience.  In passing along this group conscience, we are helping to maintain the unity and strength so vital to our fellowship.   Let us, therefore, have the patience and tolerance to listen while others share, the courage to speak up when we have something to share, and the wisdom to do what is right for our group and A.A. as a whole.
