A district is a geographical unit containing the right number of groups - right in terms of the committee member's ability to keep in frequent touch with them, to learn their problems, and to find ways to contribute to their growth and well-being.

Who attends District meeting?
Any A.A. member can attend the district meeting, but usually each groups General Service Representative attends for the group.
What is a General Service Representative?
The general service representative has the job of linking his or her home group with A.A. as a whole. The G.S.R. represents the voice of the group conscience, reporting the group's thoughts to the district committee member and to the delegate, who passes them on to the General Service Conference. This communication is a two-way street, making the G.S.R. responsible for bringing back to the group Conference Actions that affect A.A. unit, heath and growth. Only when a G.S.R. keeps the group informed, and communicates the group conscience, can the Conference truly act for A.A. as a whole.
