C.A. Arkansas, “OUR FELLOWSHIP URGENTLY REQUIRES TRUSTED SERVANTS”
(For Suggested Cleantime requirements please read WSC-World-Service-Manual-2016)
PUBLIC INFORMATION COMMITTEE:
HOSPITALS & INSTITUTIONS COMMITTEE
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR GROUP SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES (GSR’s)
GROUP SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (GSR)
Suggested clean time: One year
Term: One year
The GSR position is a very important service position for which a member can be elected. Great care should be taken with this choice; the quality of the District/Area Services and ultimately World Services can only be as good as those choices the individual Groups make. As with the Secretaries, GSR candidates should only accept positions for those Groups that they regularly attend. Regular attendance is to be defined by the groups. They are the ones who will carry the information back to the Group as to what is going on in our Fellowship on a District/ Area level as well as the World level.
It should be understood that a GSR does not require Group approval to vote on matters affecting the Group or C.A. as a whole, although it is the GSR responsibility to vote mindful of the group conscience. (See Concept 3). A good GSR is familiar with the C.A. World Service Manual and the Twelve Concepts of World Services. If the GSR cannot attend, an Alternate should attend. The person elected GSR should be trusted with the Group vote. Before accepting a nomination for GSR, the nominee must consider the level of commitment as well as the sacrifice of time involved.
Duties and Responsibilities:
1. Sees that the Traditions are followed within the Group.
2. Attends all appropriate business meetings.
3. Conducts communication between the Group, District and Area.
4. Reads/reviews communications from the District, Area and World Service.
