District Three Announcements

  • District Three Roadshow!District 3 members voted on and came to agreement to formulate commitments to groups who wish to have us in for your groups’ meeting to share our Experience, Strength and Hope but also to share information about ‘Service Work’ at the District 3 level. If your group doesn’t have a G.S.R., your groups’ voice will never be heard, ( the G.S.R.; General Service Representative may be the most important job in A. A.). Download the G.S.R. Pamphlet. Also service work at District 3 can be very exciting and rewarding!Please contact us at:, if your group would like District 3 to conduct a Roadshow at your meeting place or someone in your group wants to become a G.S.R. for your group but would like to have more information before making a decision.
  • Our general service meeting has moved to the American Legion Hall on Depot Street in Mattapoisett, MA. Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every Month  at 7 PM and are open to any AA member, not just GSR’s. So, if you want to see what a GSR meeting is like and learn about service work, please come join us.  Meetings generally last an hour-and-a-half and are well attended. Be at the heart of your district and get tied into your area and world wide service opportunities.
  • Every group in the district is allowed to and encouraged to have a General Service Representative (GSR) attend our district meeting and represent their group. This is the groups link to the larger structure of A.A. This liaison functions as the voice of the group to A.A. and the voice of A.A. to the group. It is a great opportunity for service. So, if your group doesn’t have one, consider being one. Talk to your group and if confirmed, come join us on the second Wednesday of every month.
  • There are several District service jobs open right now. Learn more about these service positions on our “Get Into Service” page. These positions are not only open to GSR’s. If you are a member of A.A. with some continuous sobriety, please consider stopping by and lend us a hand.
  • District 3 has approved a new “beginner’s pamphlet” that can be downloaded from this site and displayed / distributed at local AA meetings. This pamphlet be downloaded here.
