Oregon Area Committee – November Rotation
Several of our Service Committee Chairs will have fulfilled their commitment and will be rotating out of their positions in November of this year which means their positions will become open. At this time we are asking for service resumes from those of you who would like to serve Oregon Area in one of those positions. Although consideration and appointments to fill the committee positions will not start until after the September assembly it is helpful for us to begin the process. The cut off for accepting resumes will be around October 15th.
We would love you to join us in serving Oregon Area. We hope that you will think over whether you are available and have the time and energy to serve. Please list the committee preferences in order along with your service resume and send them to me at email@example.com. The requirements for all of the open committee positions are outlined in Oregon Area 58 Guidelines.
Here is a list of open committee positions:
- CPC South
- Hospitals Co-Chair
- PI North
- TF South
- Corrections Co-Chair
- Finance Committee Assistant Chair (3-year commitment)

What Is a “Service Resume”?
Never written a service resume before? Don’t worry, it’s not hard. A service resume is simply a list of the service positions you have held, when and where. You can include outside experience if it has some bearing on the position you are interested. For example, if you want to stand for Area Treasurer and you have some accounting experience, that would be pertinent. You don’t need a lot of detail; for most people, their service resume will fit on just one page.
