Reply to email, telephone and written questions.
Attend and participate in all quarterlies and assemblies.
At each quarterly, assembly and GSC meeting, provide reports on activities since the previous event.
Chair appropriate committee at quarterlies and assemblies.
Maintain contact with district and local committee chairs.
Maintain contact with district committee members (DCMs) assigned to GSC member’s committee.

Review www.bcyukonaa.org content as it relates to the member’s position, providing updates and new materials to the website chair as needed.
The time commitment required is substantial and will vary from position to position, and also with the particular skills possessed by the member. Generally, some time will be spent every day to check and respond to emails and phone messages. Some jobs have workloads that are heavier at certain times than at others.
It is encouraged that you speak with members of the GSC (current or past) to ask more specific questions if you wish to put your name forward for a position.
General Service Committee membership may sound demanding, but, as we so often find in A.A., the rewards are far greater than time and effort put in.
