Electronic Communications Sub-Committee (ECSC)


Vacancy for Webmaster


Applicants for this post are currently being interviewed.

The General Service Board is looking to appoint a Webmaster, who will become a member of the Electronic Communications Sub Committee. The ECSC meets in York 2/3 times per year, and members are in constant contact through email and conference calls. The post is unpaid but expenses are claimed for authorised travel and other disbursements.

The role requires a minimum of 10 years’ sobriety and familiarity with AA Literature. In particular, he/she should have a good working knowledge of AA’s Service Handbooks, Legacies, Traditions and Concepts of Service. The applicant should be endorsed by Intergroup or Region.

The person appointed will be responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of online services provided to the Fellowship.  This includes:


  • oversight of the AA website and liaison with the third-party company which manages it;
  • implementation of basic changes within the website;
  • oversight of the  Email server and liaison with the third-party company which hosts it;
  • integration of the Online Responder Service and of the Chat Now Service with the AA main website.
  • He/she will also respond to technical queries raised by members of the Fellowship relating to our online services.

Since our website and email service are maintained by third-party companies, the webmaster will not be expected to personally deal with structural amendments or emergencies. However, the oversight required means that the candidate should ideally have a working background in the uses of of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It may also be an advantage, but not essential, if the candidate has working knowledge of PHP, SQL and MYSQL with CRUD interface implementation.
