Concept VII:
reprinted with permission AAWS
Short Form:
The Charter and Bylaws of the General service Board are legal instruments, empowering ihe trustees to manage and conduct world service affairs. The Conference Charter is not a legal document; it relies upon tradition and the A.A. purse for final effectiveness.

Long Form:
The Conference recognizes that the Charter and the Bylaws of the General Service Board are legal instruments: that the Trustees are thereby fully empowered to manage and conduct all of the world service affairs of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is further understood that the Conference Charter itself is not a legal document: that it relies instead upon the force of tradition and the power of the A.A. purse for its final effectiveness.

Current Conference Charter, Appendix C, pages S101-106 in the AA Service Manual.
