Service Vacancies

Last updated June 2018

Young Persons Liaison Officer

It is through the regional assembly that the Regional Liaison Officer is elected, ideally though not essentially being a member with some experience at intergroup level. It is recommended that the officer should have at least three years continuous sobriety at the time of election and that the officer should serve for a maximum of three years and be confirmed in post annually. The officer should have come into AA at the age of 30 or younger. 

Employment Liaison Officer

The responsibility of RELOs is to carry the AA message to employers within their local area supported by intergroup and region and a PI/Service Committee if one exists. Employment specifically concerns any organisation employing or serving staff companies, trade unions and associations, government departments and/or related agencies. An established period of sobriety (ideally not less than three years) and a thorough knowledge of the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain are necessary before accepting this role. Willingness to commit to three years service and the ability to deal with a wide range of professional people and talk about AA when invited to do so, are also qualities that have proven to be desirable.

Conference Delegates/Alternates 

A region is entitled to send six delegates to Conference. These should be from suitably experienced members who have been nominated  by the regional assembly for election by the regional assembly. They should be elected well before Conference so that their names may go forward when required by GSO so that they will have time to absorb the relevant papers and re-read the suggested literature. Quality of sobriety and service record should be the guiding principles when electing delegates. It is recommended that delegates have a minimum of 5 years continuous sobriety and that before electing a delegate, a region satisfies itself that the member has demonstrated a commitment through service to the Fellowship. Potential delegates should be made aware, before election, of the commitment this post entails. In order to be elected as a delegate a member needs to have attended this region for at least a year st the time of the election but an elected delegate becomes a full member of region. While remembering that the best person for the job should be elected for the sake of AA as a whole, consideration should be given to ensuring that intergroups have easy access to a Conference delegate. A Conference delegate's duties do not finish with the end of the Conference. In fact this is only the beginning. He or she should be available and willing to report back fully to the region and also be willing to travel to intergroup and group meetings if invited to do so.
