Area 78

Alberta / Northwest Territories

Job Description

The remote communities chair will work with the General Service Committee and assigned district committee members to follow through on the work begun by the ad hoc committee in addressing the needs of Area 78’s remote communities.

The chair will:

  • Become familiar with the ad hoc committee report and the research that developed the report.
  • Communicate on a regular basis with remote communities as defined in the report and by GSO.
  • Work in conjunction with the GSC and the standing committee to recommend actions to better serve remote communities, and to frame policy regarding the remote communities committee.
  • The remote communities chair will also have the same responsibilities as every other member of the General Service Committee.

As with all appointed positions in Area 78, all applications will be considered, regardless of geographic origin. It is suggested that the remote communities chair be a past DCM, and that family and employer (if applicable) are encouraging of the necessary commitment, which entails significant time and travel obligations as required in GSC service work.
