Area Chair: Teresa J.
The area chairperson is primarily responsible for the smooth running of the area assembly. The Area 46 chairperson calls and chairs meetings of the trusted servants committee1 before each assembly meeting in order to get full participation and input on setting the assembly agenda. Also, the Area 46 chairperson appoints the chairpersons of each area standing committee and may form ad hoc committees as needed.
Between assembly and planning meetings, the Area 46 chairperson serves on the area convention committee and provides assistance as needed to all area committee chairpersons and DCMs. The area chair is also available to be of service to all A.A. groups and members in New Mexico. In general, the area chairperson provides support so other trusted servants throughout Area 46 can focus their efforts on carrying the message.
1The trusted servants committee includes area officers and committee chairpersons, the delegate and alternate delegate, and all DCMs. Past delegates are invaluable members of Area 46 and serve as elder statesmen to this committee and the assembly as a whole.
I just love being of service! If you have any questions, concerns, need assistance or support, or have an idea for service and don’t know what to do with it, call or email me. I’d love to hear from you!
You can find my phone number in any printed copy of El Farolito. Call me anytime.
