The General Service Office (GSO)

The General Service Office is located in New York City. 

All AA World Services, Inc and AA Grapevine Inc employees work from this location.  Some are AA members, some are not.  The chief executives of both corporations are AA members who provide leadership and overall management of the daily operations at the GSO. 

Why do we have a General Service Office? 

GSO serves all AA groups in the US and Canada by providing services on levels that groups, districts and areas cannot.  Printing, translations and distribution of literature, serving as a clearinghouse and information exchange of shared experiences, and preservation of archival history are all examples of services the GSO provides.
