The 12 Concepts of CMA

The Twelve Concepts for World Service are an interpretation of CMA’s world service structure as it emerged through CMA’s early history and experience.

CMA's Twelve Concepts were themselves adapted from the The Twelve Concepts for World Service originally written by Bill W., the Co-Founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, and were adopted by the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1962. 

The Twelve Concepts guide how CMA General Services (GSO) interacts with the Areas and Districts within the CMA service structure.
