Concepts in a nutshell


  1. The groups have ultimate authority for AA.
  2. The groups speak through Conference, which has immediate authority.
  3. Don't micromanage trusted servants, who act, report, consult, and ask.
  4. If you do the work you get to vote.
  5. If you disagree we'll hear your voice.
  6. The Board implements what the Conference decides.
  7. The Board's power is legal; the Conference's power is traditional and financial.
  8. The Board initiates and supervises the work of staff, committees, and hired help.
  9. Lead by example: be responsible, proactive, impartial, and flexible.
  10. Authority and responsibility go together.
  11. Carefully select and train workers and define their work.
  12. No accumulation of wealth or power; no acts of government; no unqualified authority; keep a prudent reserve; no incitement to public controversy; do not punish; decisions made by discussion, vote, and substantial unanimity.
