“Final responsibility and ultimate authority for A.A. world services should always reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.” – Bill W. 

This is an exciting time of year when we have a direct link in shaping the future of our Fellowship. Below are items on the agenda for the 68th General Service Conference. I’m seeking your Group’s consideration of these items. My job is then to bring the collective conscience of SENY/Area 49 with me when I attend the Conference. The greater the participation, and the more Groups throughout the Area involved, the better informed I will be as your Delegate. 

On Saturday, March 3rd at the Delegate’s Day of Sharing, in Manhattan, there will be presentations on these items and additional background given to help you better inform your Group. Come and be an active part of this process. 

At the April 8th Pre-Conference Assembly in Suffolk County, you will have the chance to share your Group’s conscience on these questions and leave your completed questionnaires with me. An electronic version of this questionnaire is also available at www.aaseny.org/d-q in English and Spanish. Please fill out that version if possible (it’s easier for me to tabulate). You don’t have to answer all the questions, if your Group has no opinion on an item. For those who cannot participate in the Pre-Conference Assembly, complete the questionnaire online or return to me by mail, attn.: John W., SENY Delegate, 199 Lincoln Avenue, Box 318, Bronx, NY 10454 or scan/e-mail to delegate@aaseny.org

Thank you for helping me to be a better informed Delegate! - John W. 

In the spirit of transparency and openness, and for the first time, the Delegate is making available the full conference background material for this year's General Service Conference -- a 650 page document. The summarized version will be available before the DDoSMarch 3rd.
