What Does the District Do?
Have you seen the AA inverted triangle? The District is part of the AA service structure. Know who's at the top? YOU!
That's right, as a member of AA you and the members of your homegroup make all of the decisions about how AA works, what changes can occur and where the money goes. The way your voice is heard is through your group General Service Rep (GSR) who attends the monthly District meetings and Virginia Area Conference (VAC) Assemblies.
GSRs take your group conscience to the District and also to the VAC and vote as your trusted servant on District activities and AA issues. You're in charge, but only if your group is represented at District and VAC. Find out more HERE.
Locally, Mt Vernon District holds workshops, organizes an annual fellowship picnic, reaches out with information on AA to our local community, and extends the hand of AA to local alcoholics and newly forming AA groups.
