Share Magazine

EDITOR SHARE MAGAZINE

SHARE Magazine is a Sub-Committee of the AA General Service Board.  The GSB seeks to appoint a successor to the current Editor of Share, AA's monthly magazine in England and Wales.

The Editor selects material for each month's issue, liaising with Share's Editorial Readers and Proof Reader, General Service Office colleagues and production staff at the printers.  She/ he plans the magazine's layout and content, alongside the printers, and is responsible for clearing the final proofs from the printer, ensuring that deadlines are met to guarantee Share is delivered to AA groups by the first week of the month.  The Editor chooses and collates articles, graphics, edits copy (text) and writes headlines, keeps a record of contributions and initiates, answers, and files correspondence. She or he writes a 300-word editorial each month.

The monthly production of SHARE magazine is a Team effort; it is essential for the Editor to be an experienced team player.  Computer and email competence is indispensable.  It would be desirable to have previous editing experience; training will be given.

This is a four-year unpaid commitment, although expenses may be claimed.  Applicants must have a minimum of five years continuous sobriety at the time of application.  They should be familiar with Conference-approved literature, Alcoholics Anonymous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, AA Comes of Age, Twelve Concepts and the AA Structure and Service Handbooks for Great Britain.

The Team can hold up to four annual meetings, either in York or by conference-call, including an annual, national SHARE Liaisons Officers’ meeting.  The day-to-day business of the Team is carried out electronically.

Closing date for applications is:21 April 2018
