Who attends the Convention/Assembly?
• All Area Officers, DCMs, GSRs, and interested A.A. members.
• The Home Group should financially support its GSR in attending the Convention/Assembly. What happens in the Convention/Assembly?
• In even-numbered years we have elections for the Delegate and Area Officers.
• In odd-numbered years we gather for an Assembly where the Area Officers and Area Committees report on their work to the Assembly.
• Each year we have workshops, discussion panels and meetings where the voices of the entire area are shared, offering each of us a wider and varied experience of what we could get ourselves to do with the work of the 12th step and about service.

What can I get out of this experience?
• A renewed sense of purpose and energy to carry A.A.’s message.
• A greater understanding of the issues involved and solutions to the problems we face when we are trying to carry the message to suffering alcoholics.
• A sense of being a part of Area 59 and A.A. as a whole; sharing in the ongoing efforts to protect our Fellowship and carry our message. What do I do afterwards?
• GSRs should consider giving a report to their group.
• Members can and should share their experience at meetings and among friends.

Why is it important?
• This is the only time each year when we gather, speak and vote as an Area. The Delegate may take this opportunity to seek guidance from the Assembly on matters concerning the Area or the Conference.
• At these Area gatherings we have a rare opportunity to share our concerns and solutions to problems we face in carrying A.A.’s message with a diverse group who can inform us of their experience.
