District Service Work
Volunteer for District 30 or 40 Service
While the Districts and NECS are autonomous entities, we do cooperate in serving the Fellowship and helping to reach the alcoholic who still suffers. Listed below are some additional service areas where you can help carry the message of hope and recovery. Check out the Area 57 (Oklahoma) District Map if you need help determining the correct district for your group. Note that Tulsa is split down the middle by district 30 and 40 with Lewis Ave being the dividing line.
