Step 12 in Action

Area 84 is looking to fill the following service positions:

  • Area Secretary

    The secretary records and distributes minutes of Area 84 meetings; keeps mailing lists up to date and sends out area mailings.

    The secretary should have a “reasonable period of sobriety". Some service in group or central office or general service is useful. So is some background in general office work and a good knowledge of computers.

    An effective secretary needs to have a sense of order, and the ability to capture the essentials of what is happening at a meeting. The job is time-consuming and needs to be carried out on schedule, and the secretary needs to be sure that ample time is available.

    The secretary is in a good position to act as liaison between officers and committee members.
