Asia Oceania Service Meeting – Statement of Purpose

“The primary purpose of the Asia Oceania Service Meeting (AOSM) is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who still suffers.

The AOSM seeks ways to accomplish this goal by providing a forum for the delegates to share the experience, strength, and hope of the countries they represent and who come together from all parts of Asia and Oceania.

It can also represent an expression of the Group Conscience throughout the region and provide a link to the World Service Meeting for countries unable to be represented there.

Experience has shown that a sound service structure enables the message to be delivered more effectively. The AOSM encourages the planning of sound structures suited to the needs of the individual countries and the expansion of AA service to reach the alcoholic through the spoken word, literature, and institutions’ work.

The AOSM recognizes it has no authority over any AA service or group. The only decisions to be made by the AOSM are those which affect their meeting itself.”

Alcoholics Anonymous Preamble

Alcoholics Anonymous is a Fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement of membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self‐supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our Primary Purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
