Area 54 Northeast Ohio General Service is the website for Area 54. The Area 54 website’s main purpose is to provide communication amongst our Area and to keep us well informed of the activities and events of A.A. in Area 54. It is maintained, updated and supported by the Area Webmaster. Last names are not used on the Area website, to adhere to A.A.’s Twelve Traditions.

Area 54, NE Ohio General Service, is one of 93 General Service Conference delegate areas in the United States and Canada. In 1957, Area 54 was carved out of the northern Ohio delegate area established in 1951 as the result of action taken at the 1950 International AA Convention in Cleveland Ohio. Area 54 prepares and sends a delegate to the annual General Service Conference as a voting representative of the A.A. groups within Area 54’s boundaries.

The Area 54 committee consists of six Area officers, DCM’s from the 65 geographically defined districts and two  Spanish speaking “floating” districts [east and west], and Area standing committees chairs. The Area 54 committee is responsible for the health of the conference structure within Area 54 and thus for growth and harmony in the A.A. fellowship.

An Area 54 assembly is a meeting of GSR’s and the Area committee. There are six Area 54 assemblies per year. Voting members of the assembly include all GSR’s (or their alternates), Central Office/Intergroup liaisons, Past Delegates and all members of the Area Committee. During the Area Assembly their are reports from Area Officers, Committees, District Committee Members (DCMs), Central Office & Intergroups. The assembly also takes action on proposals presented the Area Assembly from AA members. The Area Assembly is an integral part of the Conference structure, the democratic voice of the members expressing themselves. Assemblies are the responsibility of the Area Committee, and are conducted by our Area Chair.

For further information on the Area Committee and Assembly, we recommend reading The AA Service Manual published by AA World Sevices, Inc.
