2020 Pre-Conference Sharing Session
April 5, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
As we approach February we will begin the Area 59 “conscience-gathering” process for the 2020 (70th) General Service Conference which will be held in Rye, NY April 17 – 15. A key event, open to Members and conducted by the Area 59 Committee is our annual Pre-Conference Sharing Session. District 28 will be our host this year and the event will take place at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, 723 S 43rd Street, Philadelphia on Sunday, April 5th.
Please enthusiastically help make this a success.
As service leaders in Area 59, you play a critical role in assisting your delegate to hear and understand the perspectives of our Eastern PA Members and Groups regarding the important “big” issues facing our entire Fellowship. Items like, “Should A.A. World Services begin developing a 5th Edition of the Big Book?”
As delegate for Area 59, it is my responsibility to listen to the voices of our area and to carry this with me, along with background information, to the 70th General Service Conference. For good reasons, the delegate is not bound to vote exactly like her or his area because the delegate will hear a full range of perspectives from delegates (across the USA & Canada) and committees at the Conference before those final votes are taken. Nonetheless, this does not lessen the Pre-Conference Sharing at all – it means that hearing from DCMs, officers, GSRs and Members is very important to me and to A.A. – as a whole.
