Sponsorship and Service
The word sponsor is not mentioned in the Big Book explicitly although it is in the AA Service Manual, for example in Concept 9 (“every sponsor is a leader”, etc) What is not talked about so much is how helpful long term sponsorship can be to AA service. I will give some examples from my own experience. My first two service positions were nothing to do with my sponsor. My first service position was literature secretary, which was offered to me by my first home group. Then my sponsor started a new group so I joined that. My second service position as secretary of that group, and I was nominated and voted in by the group for that (though my sponsor would’ve have preferred me to do a different position).
