Welcome to the official website of Service Area 37 of the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous. Area 37 covers the entire state of Mississippi and is one of 93 areas in the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous (United States/Canada).
Each year, elected officers, district committee members (DCMs) and group service representatives (GSRs), as well as appointed committees, gather together at four quarterly assembly meetings to discuss and vote upon issues affecting A.A. at the state level. We also elect a delegate to represent us at higher levels.
All Area 37 members are welcome to attend assembly meetings, but only those elected as GSRs, DCMs, standing committee chairs, officers, alternate officers, delegate, and past delegates may cast a vote.
We are responsible directly to the groups we serve. Our membership consists of more than 200 A.A. groups from about 100 Mississippi towns and cities.
The primary purpose of our website is to help readers find information about the location, times, and addresses of meetings of Area 37 groups and districts so he or she can make direct, face-to-face contact with A.A. This website will not be used to establish or encourage email exchanges, chat meetings, or contacts that lead to similar online activities. All information is provided solely for the purpose of helping the alcoholic make direct, face-to-face contact with A.A.
Alcoholics Anonymous Preamble:
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
A.A.’s Responsibility Declaration:
“I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.”
