The 8th Concept - Trustee Oversight

AA Logo

The Eighth Concept of World Service provides, in it short form that:

The trustees are the principal planners and administrators of overall policy and finance. They have custodial oversight of the separately incorporated and constantly active services, exercising this through their ability to elect all the directors of these entities." This concept continues the defining of responsibilities and authority begun in the earlier concepts. It limits the role of the Trustees in the A.A. Grapevine, Inc. and A.A. World Services, Inc. to the kind of oversight achieved by electing the directors of those independent entities, but essentially discouraging them from playing day-to-day roles as active administrators or executives of those companies.


Are there areas in our private lives where we should resist the tempatation to micro-manage, perhaps in the affairs of our spouses or children or parents? Don't we really have our own duties and responsibilities with which we should be concerned?
