Area 86 Newsletter

Rhonda S.


The Focus is a series of articles written by Area 86 members on a variety of topics. It is then published prior to the Spring and Fall Assembly and made available for distribution by the District Committee Members to their General Service Representatives. It is used as a communication tool across the whole of Area 86.

Any Member can write a story on the topic for the Focus.

Your content should be based on the current topic.

It should be 300-600 words (3/4 to just over 1 page typed) if it is a story to be published or as small as 2-4 sentences if it is a brief idea pertaining to the chosen topic.

Current Edition of the Focus – Submissions Wanted!

The topic for the Spring 2020 edition is: “What is AA unity? Why is it important and how can we foster it?”

Please submit submissions, large or small, by selecting the “contact” link above.  Thank you in advance for your contribution!
