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.
Chair/Web Servant: Theron B., email firstname.lastname@example.org
Assistant Web Servant: Nick F., email email@example.com
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.
Website Submissions & Updates
To list an Area event such as a Corrections Workshop on the website calendar, send the event information and an electronic copy of the flyer (PDF preferred) to the Web Servant . Check that the flyer has no anonymity issues and clearly shows the date, time, and location of the event, including the city or town.
District events such as workshops, picnics, campouts, etc. may be listed if they have interest beyond the sponsoring district.
We also list monthly district business meetings but we do not list regular A.A. meetings; instead, 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.
