Service

Being of service is one of the most important tools in our recovery program. Service keeps us coming back and helps us to remain abstinent one day at a time from incurring any new unsecured debt, while supporting our Fellowship and others in recovery.

Service can include D.A. Meeting attendance, DATIG Business Meeting attendance, holding a service position such as Meeting Moderator (adds people to the Skype calls), Meeting Leader, DATIG Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, or Webmaster, or reaching out to newcomers for encouragement and support. Service may also include being a sponsor. DATIG has produced a helpful guide to the various ways of doing service in DA. Download the DATIG Service Guide here.

Service Opportunities

Below is a list of all service opportunities for DATIG. Each listing includes a description of some of the basic duties for that position. As a group our goal is to support each other and work together as a whole, so on occasion requests may be made to assist in another position wherever possible.

For all service positions, if during their term the trusted servant fails to maintain continuous abstinence during the term of service, they will be asked to resign.

Elections take place in March and September every year. As established at the May 2018 meeting, “Trusted Servant Positions shall be 6 months*, and there is no limit to number of consecutive terms that can be served.” If someone steps in to fill an open position during a term, they serve for the remainder of that term; there is no staggering of terms.
*At the September 2019 meeting, the Treasurer Term was changed to 1 year due to complexity of turnover. The ISR term was set as 3 years at the October 2019 meeting.
