Nominating & Elections Committee
Purpose of Committee:
The Nominating & Elections Committee is a unique committee at the Rochester Area Intergroup that is often unknown to local members of AA.
The purpose of the Nominating and Elections Committee is to provide a slate of candidates for all rotating, elected positions within the Intergroup and to facilitate the election process, by providing support and information on the upcoming election, at the monthly Intergroup meeting.
How it helps the alcoholic who still suffers:
The Rochester Area Intergroup Board of Trustees, Personnel Committee and Intergroup Registrar are elected on a rotating schedule every May. Those elected are trusted servants to the groups who have elected them and are elected to ensure the administrative and financial viability and oversight of the Intergroup so that Alcoholics Anonymous is secure now and into the future, making sure the “hand of AA will always be there.”
How you can grow spiritually by getting involved:
Growth from being a part of the committee comes from learning to implement the spiritual principles contained in our Steps, Traditions and Concepts when helping to find suitable members of our fellowship to serve the AA community on the Board of Trustees, Personnel Committee or as our Intergroup Registrar.
How you can get involved:
Members of the Nominating and Elections Committee are generally chosen from the current Intergroup Representatives. This committee has one person that is appointed by the Chair of the Intergroup and two others that are nominated and elected by the Intergroup Representatives at the JANUARY meeting (this year that will be January 11th, 2018).
