WASHINGTON AREA GENERAL SERVICE ASSEMBLY - AREA 13
The Spiritual Basis for WAGSA
The goal of the Washington Area General Service Assembly (WAGSA), as part of the General Service Conference, is to enhance Twelfth Step work, acting through an informed group conscience. With this objective in mind, WAGSA strives to:
• Stimulate A.A. group involvement and participation in the Assembly.
• Allow for free, open and unrestricted dialogue among A.A. groups in Area 13.
• Guarantee that the voice of the A.A. groups is heard within the A.A. service structure.
• Protect against “railroading” and “log rolling” of one individual’s or group’s specific agenda or course of action.
• Ensure the right of the minority to be heard.
• Make sure that the Area Assembly does not act as a governing body over anyone.
• Protect the Twelve Traditions of A.A.
• Be knowledgeable in service matters by studying the A.A. Service Manual, A.A. Comes of Age and the Language of the Heart.
• Foster awareness and understanding of the Twelve Concepts of World Service.
