Alcoholic Foundation Becomes the General Service Board

Alcoholic Foundation Becomes the General Service Board

  Changing the name of the Alcoholic Foundation to the General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous was first proposed at the first General Service Conference in the spring of 1951, but the switch becomes official in 1954. The motivation is to signal that the A.A. membership is taking full responsibility for itself.
