GSO Needs Your Support

Making a Financial Contribution to Alcoholics Anonymous Australia.

The Seventh Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous states:  

“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” 

While contributions cover each group’s rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition is essential at every level of A.A. service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but also their intergroup/central office, local services, district, area, and the General Service Office remain self-supporting.

This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose — to help the alcoholic who still suffers. The amount of our contribution is secondary to the spiritual connection that unites all groups around the world.

In light of this, Alcoholics Anonymous Australia does not accept donations from non members. By clicking the checkbox below, you confirm that you are, or are acting on behalf of, a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.

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.
