District Service Committee

Updated November 26, 2014

The DSC is where all the business of the District is discussed. All MA members are welcome to attend. DSC meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. at:

     San Francicso Public Library
     100 Larkin Street (at Grove Street)
     4th Floor - Sycip Conference Room
       MA is not a Library Sponsored Program.

The DSC helps support MA meetings and carry the message of recovery to the addict who still suffers. Many of us have found that serving on the DSC strengthens our personal recovery. District service positions include:

Officers

CHAIRPERSON
VICE CHAIRPERSON
SECRETARY
TREASURER

Subcommittees

BUREAU CHIEF
COMMUNICATIONS
EVENTS
HOSPITALS & INSTITUTIONS
PUBLIC INFORMATION
LITERATURE & CHIPS

DSC officers and subcommittee chairs are selected annually at the September DSC meeting, however, there are opportunities to get involved at any time, for whatever duration of time you can contribute. To learn more, come to the next DSC meeting.

Group Service Representatives (GSR)

Each group (meeting) in the District is represented by a GSR. They are chosen periodically by their respective groups.

MA World Services Delegates

Delegates represent the District at the MAWS Conference in May of each year, serve on MAWS Conference Committees during the following year, and report to the District concerning MAWS business. Each District is allowed two Delegates who are designated several months prior to the MAWS Conference. District 1 prefers Delegates to serve for two-year terms.

Inter-District Liaisons

Representatives from other MA Districts may attend our DSC meeting to observe and report on business in their Districts. Similarly, representatives from our District may attend DSC meetings in other Districts and report back to our DSC. Inter-District Liaison may be facilitated by online discussion boards and email lists.
