(#1425) Neely D (Decatur, GA)
5/20/1978 in Macon, GA  EVENT: Georgia State Service Assembly (GSSA)  TYPE: AA, Female, Story, Historical


Sober 32 years, Neely came into AA in Atlanta in 1943 and received permanent sobriety in 1945.

Neely was the first Delegate from Georgia (Area 16) (Panel 2 - 1952-3) and the first female Delegate ever to the AA General Service Conference.

She is speaking to the Assembly of AA Leaders in Georgia and does a marvelous and thorough job of relating her story and the story of AA in Georgia.

When they voted for the first Delegate neither candidate hand a two thirds majority and the male nominee ,Monty M., said "Ladies first." He later served as Area 16's second Delegate (Panel 4 - 1954-5).

Area 16 Item: C001-75
