Fellowship Ready for Responsibility
At this time, we realized that AA had grown up, that our Fellowship was ready and able to take these responsibilities from us. There was also another urgent reason for change. Since we old timers couldn't live on forever, newer trustees would be virtually unknown to the A.A. groups, now spread over the whole earth. Without direct linkage to A.A., future trustees couldn't possibly function alone.
This meant that we had to form a conference representing our membership which could meet yearly with our board of trustees in New York, and thus assume direct responsibility for the guardianship of A.A. tradition and the direction of our principal service affairs. Otherwise, a virtually unknown board of trustees and our too little understand service headquarters operations would someday be bound to face collapse.
