As suggested in the A.A. Service Manual (2015-16 edition), the Area 79 registrar develops and maintains records of all groups in the area, including group name, meeting location, time, and GSR or group contact. The registrar may also be responsible for names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of the GSRs, DCMs, district and area officers, and area committee members. He or she may provide mailing labels for area publications such as a newsletter or a mailing of minutes. The registrar also assists the General Service Office (GSO) records department to keep their records up to date.
Registrars should be familiar with the area and district structure. For this job, an organized approach is important as there are many details that need to be recorded. Ideally, it would be very helpful if the area registrar possessed some practical, working computer knowledge, and were comfortable relaying information via email to GSO and within the local area.
This is an extremely rewarding position which requires a daily commitment of time, and even more time before and after assemblies, GSC meetings and travel assignments.
