GSR Resources

What is a GSR?

A General Service Representative (GSR) is the link between an AA group and AA as a whole.

On page S26 of the AA Service Manual, we find: “The GSR represents the voice of the group conscience, reporting the group’s thoughts to the district committee member (DCM) and to the delegate, who passes them on to the Conference.”

It is recommended that GSRs have at least two years of sobriety, time to commit to meetings, and the ability to listen to differing points of view.

Suggestions for new GSRs

If your group is brand new, please complete a new group form, otherwise complete a GSR Change Form and send it to the Area registrar.


One of our first recommendations is to register for this website so you can view agenda, minutes and reports from Area 28 and perhaps from your district. Go to the home page of this site and click Register in the upper left of the page just below the blue menu bar.
