About Regions

There are presently 15 regions on mainland Great Britain and one further region representing English speaking Continental Europe. Regional officers represent the same service disciplines as intergroups and provide a forum for discussion, exchange of information/best practice and an opportunity for initiatives which carry AA's message over a larger geographical area.

South West Region Assembly 
S.W.Reg meets in Exeter at The Sacred Heart Parish Pastoral Centre, Cardinal Newman House, Wonford Road, Exeter EX2 4PF on the first Sunday of March, June, September and December.

The Regional Year

The March meeting includes "Pre-conference" at which any member of Alcoholics Anonymous in south west England can come along and convey their views concerning the "Questions to Conference" to the delegates who will be attending the conference that year. Questions to Conference are published in early December and the conference takes place in York in April.
The June meeting includes "Post-conference" at which each of the six delegates give a verbal report covering the discussions they had and the way they voted at each session. Region doesn't discuss the decisions or recommendations arrived at by Conference, but they do ratify (or not) the delegates for attendance at conference the following year.
The September meeting is the one at which service workshops take place for an hour before the scheduled Regional Assembly.
The December meeting includes an Annual General Meeting during which the Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Vice-chair are ratified (or not).
