Grapevine : June 2011
aagrapevine.org 11 Board would be a terrific way for me to ‘give back’ to AA and share my appre- ciation for all that it has helped to accomplish.” The new trustees’ terms started after the April 2010 General Service Conference. Nonalcoholic trustees make up seven of the 21 trustees serving on the GSB. Since they do not need to maintain anonym- ity, they are available to appear in public on behalf of AA. According to The AA Service Manual, board members make an effort to choose Class A trustees from a variety of profes- sional backgrounds, and the board has included doctors, lawyers, clergy, sociologists, business people and financial ex- perts among its members. The GSB bylaws state that nonalcoholic trustees “shall be persons who are not and have not been afflicted by the disease of alcoholism and who express a profound faith in the recovery program upon which the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous is founded.” Historical items available to AAs Materials from the Archives offered for free or for a contribution The General Service Office’s Archives has a number of items available to AA members for free or for a contribution. Some of the free items are: copies of the 1941 and 1950 Jack Alexander articles from the Saturday Evening Post, the 1939 Liberty Magazine article “Al- coholics and God,” Bill W.’s last message, Dr. Bob’s farewell talk and other items of historical or service-related interest.
