Trusted Servants

Trusted Servants

This we owe to A.A.’s future to place our common welfare first; to keep our fellowship united. For on A.A. unity depend our lives, and the lives of those to come.

It takes people to get group jobs done. Most of us agree that A.A. ought never be ‘organized.’ However, without endangering our commitment to preserve our spiritual and democratic Fellowship, we can create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve. (Tradition Nine) In AA groups, these trusted servants are called ‘officers’ and are usually chosen by the group for limited terms of service. As Tradition Two reminds us, ‘Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.’

– From the pamphlet, The AA Group: Where it all begins. 2005, p. 16.

Service in GROW

GROW provides many opportunities for service work, a cornerstone of our sobriety. We rely on our trusted servants, as well as a steering committee, to help keep the group running smoothly. Besides the familiar positions found in most face-to-face A.A. groups, we also have trusted servants responsible for the tasks necessary to maintain an online group.
