  • District 04, Area 92:
    What is a D.C.M.?
    The heart of A.A. is the group, which elects a general service representative (G.S.R.). The G.S.R. attends district meetings that are made up of the groups in that district. The G.S.R.s elect a district committee member (D.C.M.). Thus, the D.C.M. is the vital link between the group's G.S.R., and the area service structure, including the area's delegate to the General Service Conference.

    What does the D.C.M. do?
    The D.C.M. carries the collective group conscience of the A.A. groups in the district to the area committee. Among the two-way communication responsibilities of the D.C.M. are:
    • Holding regular meetings of all G.S.R.s in the district.
    • Assisting the delegate in obtaining group information in time to meet the deadline for appropriate A.A. directories.
    • Keeping G.S.R.s informed about Conference activities.
    • Acquainting G.S.R.s with The A.A. Service Manual, Box 4-5-9, and other A.A. literature.
    • Holding workshops on carrying the message of the Seventh Tradition to nonsupporting A.A. groups.
    • Holding sharing sessions on just about any service subject.
    • And, of course, making a regular practice of talking to groups (new and old) on the responsibilities of general service work.
