Area Assembly May 2021 update

Please be advised that the SC Disc9 bid to host the Area Assembly for May 2021 was passed and accepted at the Area B Assembly on 13/02/2021.


Our DCM Linda T is looking into the suitability of the Valdora Community Hall as the next venue, we can book this for the 15th May at a cost of $2 per person, so around $40 to 50 depending on how many come along. 

As Linda T has arranged with the hall to physically visit and inspect the hall next week we now invite any persons in this group to lodge their objections to the booking of this site [if it is suitable] as the next Area Assembly Venue, so as not to miss out please respond to email by 11.59pm Wednesday the 17/02/202. You are welcome to view the Web page at

The Mixer contributions required

Hi everyone,


We’re keen to get another edition of The Mixer out asap. We think the timing is especially important given a lot of us (including newcomers) are still inhibited from getting back to face-to-face meetings.


But we need your help! How? More contributions!


Some ideas include:

  • Your recovery story (as if you were sharing experience, strength and hope at an ID meeting), with or without a theme
  • Your experience in, and living, the program throughout COVID
  • How your home group has adapted / managed throughout the pandemic
  • Your experience of doing service in AA, generally or in relation to a certain service position


And if you don’t have time to submit a story about your own experience, maybe you’ve seen an AA-related article in another setting. For example, in the last edition, a member referred us to a piece that was originally published on the website for the central service office around San Francisco, looking at how we might honour the 12 traditions in the context of Zoom.


Please let me know if you have any questions – I’d be happy to give you a steer.


The Mixer Website: As a side note, our website is back up and running ( – however, we are keen to improve it! There are some great Australian AA websites, like the national website, (, and here in Victoria, AA Times ( So if you (or another member you might be able to put us in contact with) has had any experience with the set up or management / maintenance of these websites, we’d be grateful to pick your brain.


Yours in service,


Tom M (together with Brad S, and Lindee C)


Editor, The Mixer (Australian national AA magazine)
