Armed Services Liaison Officer
An Armed Services Liaison Officer is responsible for establishing local links with the Royal Navy, the Army, the Royal Air Force and any other organisation that is connected with the Armed Services.
These trusted servants should have an established period of sobriety, ideally not less than two years, and a good working knowledge of the AA Service Handbook. It is recommended that they should serve for not less than two years and not more than three years.
It is through the intergroup assembly that the intergroup ASLO is elected and to which he/she subsequently reports. An important task of the Armed Services Liaison Officer (as with all other trusted servants) is to keep intergroup informed of events on a regular basis.
It often takes a long time to establish a good working relationship between AA and the Armed Services. In order therefore to safeguard progress to date and ensure continuity should another member need to take responsibility at short notice, it is good practice for the intergroup Public Information Officer to have access to all relevant Armed Services material, contacts and details of forthcoming presentations.
