To manage and maintain the Oregon Area Web Site as a resource in helping the Area carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the still-suffering alcoholic.
Website Submissions & Updates
If you would like to list an Area event such as a Corrections Workshop, send the event information to link a flyer to your calendar event, send it as an attachment in an email to the Web Servant (preferably as a PDF). Make sure the flyer has no anonymity issues and clearly shows the date, time, and location of the event, including the city or town.
District events may be listed if they have interest beyond the sponsoring district; for example, a district workshop on sponsorship that seeks to include members from other districts can be listed. We also list monthly district business meetings but we do not list regular A.A. meetings; for that, we link to the relevant district or intergroup web site to ensure access to the most up-to-date information. If no district or intergroup web site is available, we will post a PDF copy of the district’s meeting schedule. In that case, it is the DCM’s responsibility to send new schedules to the Web Servant as they are updated.
To update the information on your committee page or if you have an idea about adding information that would help your committee carry out its mission, please email the Web Servant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair/Web Servant: Theron B., email email@example.com
Assistant Web Servant: Nick F., email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Web Servant and Assistant Web Servant serve a continuous term of two years each with the Assistant then rotating to Web Servant at the end of his/her term. Rotation occurs at the November Area Assembly in even numbered years. The web site committee consists of the webmaster, assistant webmaster, and other members appointed by the Oregon Area Chair. The committee reports to the Area Chair and operates under the Oregon Area Web Site Guidelines (see Oregon Area Guidelines)
The purpose of the web site is to:
- Assist the groups of the area carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the still suffering alcoholic,
- Facilitate communication among GSRs, DCMs, area committee members and area officers,
- Improve in understanding the workings of the area in order to encourage participation in service work.
Between assemblies the webmaster position takes 1-3 hours per week, updating pages, answering email, committee discussion, etc. Then perhaps two or three times a year a “project” (nature varies) will take 10-40 hours. Similar duties apply to the assistant webmaster.
