What positions are available?

Volunteers in service at the Bookstore / Central Office are required to have one year of sobriety and a working knowledge of the steps and traditions. Volunteers can opt for 6 month or 1 year service commitments that are generally scheduled as a four-hour shift two times a month. Shift openings are announced at the monthly Intergroup meeting and are published in Fellowship News‚ the Intergroup newsletter. Applications for volunteer commitments are available at the bookstore or by email.

The ICSC (Intergroup Central Service Committee)‚ a subcommittee of Sonoma County Intergroup Fellowship‚ provides oversight of the Bookstore and supports its paid Manager. ICSC members are elected twice a year at the Intergroup meeting. Candidates must have five years of sobriety‚ business or professional background‚ and substantial AA service experience.

There is also a Bookstore Auxiliary for those with less than a year or those that just want to help out with Bookstore projects.
