District Meeting is the LAST Sunday of November


Due to the conflict with the CNIA Election Assembly this month (November), the District 11 meeting has been rescheduled to the LAST Sunday, November 29.

In the past (since the district meeting was changed), when the 4th Sunday followed the 3rd Saturday, it has been on ACM weekends. But this November, and again in May of 2016 it conflicts with CNIA Assemblies. It will also happen January of 2017.

In Service to AA as a Whole


On January 16 and 17, 2016, District 11 is hosting the California Northern Interior Area 07 Winter Assembly, part of the General Service structure. This assembly serves an area stretching from the Oregon border to below Fresno and more than two hundred service-minded attendees are expected.

If you want to be of Service beyond the group level, this is an opportunity to serve Alcoholics Anonymous as a whole. There are several committee chairs that need to be filled with associated volunteers. At the District meeting on June 28 there will be a kick-off session. Alano Club main meeting room at 3:30; doors open before 3 for questions and answers.

Message from DCM…


Hello all GSRs & other trusted servants.

Nancy Mc, our CNIA 07 Alternate Chair, will be with us for our May 24th District Meeting.  She has requested to be there to “kick-off” our Winter Assembly Committee for January 16-17, 2016.

Please consider bringing along any AA member from your groups you think would be willing to work on this Committee. The Senior Citizen Center has been reserved, now we need to get all the other parts dialed in. Keep in mind this not a District GSR only committee.

This should include anyone in our fellowship who wants to be of service. Please, please make every effort to attend this District meeting on Sunday, the 24th of May at 3:30 (doors open at 3). We can all work together to make the first Assembly of the new 2016-17 Panel a huge success.

In Love & Service, Maureen
