Our purpose and direction in AA is to “stay sober and help others.” Members participate is this “business side” of A.A. because they want the hand of A.A. always to be there for all who seek help now and in the future. A.A. has been in existence for over 80 years, and is still a viable program today. There have been some changes over the years, but the basics are still the same – the first 164 pages of the Big Book are still viewed as the “Program.” It’s an interesting process to see the business side of AA at work in our local groups. The service structure of A.A. is designed so that the individuals in the groups are the ones involved in any changes that may be considered. There is no President, no CEO, no “boss” of A.A., God is our ultimate authority, and He has the last word when majority fails to speak. How do you view the business side of AA?
