The group provides Big Books to those who cannot afford them and accepts Big Book donations from groups and individuals who would like to help them out.
The group's link to GSO starts with a General Service Representative (GSR). The GSR communicates your group conscience to our delegate and conveys GSO information to the group. In this way, groups are the ultimate authority in AA. If your group doesn't have an active GSR, it's missing out!
A new panel (68) will start the first of the year and groups are currently electing GSRs for the new term. This is an exciting dimension of AA that many are unaware of. If you'd like to know more about general service, come to our monthly District 22 meeting: all are welcome!
Due to negative cash flow, H&I must cut back book distribution. In El Dorado County, contributions dropped from $9,399 to $6,688 a year — likely due to incorrect reports that H&I requested that Pink Cans no longer be passed (learn more).
Earlier this year, H&I distributed $50,000 to Northern California intergroups, central offices, and areas. Area 07 CNIA used their portion to provide DVD's of the Freedom PSA to every correction facility in California.

Contributions deficit to GSO operating expense is $7.27 per member. Join those who want to assure GSO has the resources required to support us by sending $7.27 to GSO via GSO's online contributions page.
A Safety Card containing the following, suitable for display in meeting places, will soon be available from GSO:
Suggested Statement on Safety
Our group endeavors to provide a safe meeting place for all attendees and encourages each person here to contribute to fostering a secure and welcoming environment in which our meetings can take place.
As our Traditions remind us, the formation and operation of an AA group reside with the group conscience. Therefore, it is our individual and collective responsibility to maintain the welfare of the group, and we request that members and others refrain from any behavior which might compromise another person's safety.Also, please take the precautions you feel are necessary to ensure your own personal safety, for example, walking to your car in a group after a meeting.
If a situation should arise where someone feels their safety is in jeopardy, or the situation breaches the law, the individuals involved should take appropriate action. Calling the proper authorities does not go against any AA Traditions and is recommended when someone may have broken the law or endangered the safety of another person.
The Tradition of Anonymity is not a shield to conceal wrongdoing and AA membership does not grant immunity from applicable laws.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through own own contributions.
AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

The Western Slope consists of El Dorado County from its western boundary to Pollock Pines. The Sierra Nevada eastern slope — South Lake Tahoe — affiliates with the Northern Nevada fellowship.
Western Slope District 22 has 27 groups and is one of 28 districts in CNIA (California Northern Interior Area) Area 07.
Area 07 is one of 93 areas represented by a delegate to the General Service Conference. Every group with a General Service Representative (GSR) is represented at the General Service Conference which is, in turn, accountable to every group.
District 22 develops and maintains this site in accordance with our district's purpose and AA principles, working closely with Intergroup and other AA committees serving the Western Slope. Our collective goal is to carry the AA message and to inform members and the public of AA meetings, events and services.
