GaL-AA Seeking Candidates for 2020 Elections

In our spirit of rotation we hope to inspire you and excite willingness to serve the LGBT+ AA community on the GaL-AA executive board. We especially encourage young people in the LGBT+ community with a commitment to sobriety to help fill current openings. Young or not so young, we need our members to fill several vacancies on the board.

There are a few things you should know about our service positions. First, anyone can run for an executive committee position no matter where in the world you live. Second, we hold our monthly business virtually/electronically. Third, as per the GaL-AA by–laws, the executive committee generally has one (1) in-person (face-to-face) meeting each year after the International AA Convention and two (2) per year the year before and the year of the AA Convention. AA’s next International Convention is in Vancouver in 2025. Each committee member is responsible to pay for any travel and related expenses for in-person meetings (GaL-AA provides lodging). If you need any further information, please reach out to a current committee member.
