The GSR (General Service Representative): our link between our
HomeGroup and AA as a whole. 
District 35 (Charles County) is acollection of the Home Group representatives that share their group conscience and experiences with each other and carry that collective message to our Area 29 (Maryland General Services). 

Without a group representative (GSR), a group's voice is not heard.  There is but a small handful of groups that are represented.  Be active! Beinvolved!  It is such an awesome way to give back! The collective message of our District and Area meetings are in turn brought back to our Home Groups. 

Do we know what that collective message is without a group representative?  Do we know if our group conscience is in good health? Is our hand really out to the person reaching for help?

We help carry the message by reaching out to our local institutions where help is sought and hosting various functions and activities that support the health of our entire fellowship.

What is District 36 and How does it work?
• District 36 is a collection of Home Group Reps from the meetings in St. Mary’s County, MD.

• The heart of AA is the Groups, which elect a (G.S.R) Group Service Representative to be the link between their group and the fellowship as a whole. The G.S.R represents the voice of the group conscience, and reporting the groups thoughts to the (D.C.M.) District Committee Member at the District meeting. This information is then communicated down to the Maryland General Service Area 29 and the General Service Conference. This sharing of information is to identify problems, and find ways to contribute to AA group growth and well-being.

• This communication is a two-way street. Information that is shared and passed along at the District meetings are communicated back to the groups.

• Service Committees are formed at the District meetings to help better serve and carry the message to the still suffering Alcoholic.

• During the meeting Group reports are given to exchange information about the groups well-being, what is working well for the group or isn’t working.

• All members of the fellowship are welcome to attend. We encourage you all to bring your ideas on how the District can continue to carry the message.

Greetings Friends and Fellows, District 36 is in need of support and our goal is always to get more participation from our groups.  With the ever-changing status of our District’s meetings and alternative platforms they are being held, we need to keep in contact with each now more than ever.  It’s imperative we share with each other how our groups are faring these unprecedented times and the measures the groups are taking to keep our fellows safe.  Groups that are not represented are also out of the loop of what happening in AA as a whole

All members of the Fellowship are Welcome!!

Hope to see you all at our next District 36 meeting. Feel free to reach out to me for more info at

Take care my “WE”,

Brandi D.
D-36 DCM
