See below for links to job descriptions.

Additionally - Grassroots Committee Chair: Responsible for the Area Newsletter (Grassroots Forum) and leads the committee responsible for the format, content and distribution of this quarterly publication. Motion passed in October 2016 reads....

“The Area 79 chair will be free to assign Grassroots, or any other standing committee, as an additional responsibility to any member of the GSC, based on committee workloads and GSC members’ skills”.

Please note; if you are planning on applying for an appointed position, please be aware of the following:

  1. Communications between members of the Area Committee are generally via email and therefore it is essential to have access to electronic communications in order to be considered for a position.
  2. The transitional General SC meeting held on the first Wednesday of December, (after the election assembly) is mandatory as are all monthly GSC meetings of the 2-year rotation.
  3. The time commitment required is substantial and will vary from position to position, and also with the particular skills possessed by the member. Generally, some time will be spent every day to check and respond to emails and phone messages. Some jobs have workloads that are heavier at certain times than at others.
  4. We encourage you to speak with members of the GSC (current or past) to ask more specific questions if you are considering applying for an appointed position.
  5. General Service Committee membership may sound demanding, but, as we so often find in A.A., the rewards are far greater than time and effort put in.
  6. For more information please read “duties common to all” on the job description page.
