District 54 chair positions

The Group's GSR

A group's GSR, or General Service Representative, is probably the most important position in the AA service structure. The GSR's role is to be the group's voice at the district meetings, providing up to date information about their group, and to bring information back to their group. In short, they are the direct link between AA groups and the GSO.
