[edit] Basic questions the SARA Secretary should have

[edit] How do I let everyone know who has been elected (appointed) to the SAR Alberta Executive/Board?

Send an email to Brett Wuth so he can update the Board Database.

Send a submission to SARA Happenings so the SAR Community will know about it. See SARA Happenings Publishing.

There's a mail alias that will reach both the Region's Director and Deputy Director:, where XX is the abbreviation for the region, e.g. NE for North-East Region. See EMail Lists.

[edit] Is there a single e-mail address that will go to all the directors?

Yes, see EMail Lists

[edit] How do I submit things for the Electronic Newsletter?

See SARA Happenings Publishing

[edit] How do I maintain the membership records?

[edit] Who should I contact to get the website updated?

[edit] What things do I need to do through out the year?

There are many things, only a few of which are listed here yet. Please add your notes here.

  • November (about 6 months before the AGM) - start recruiting new Membership Applications
  • December 22 to January 31 - Sometime between these two dates you must file the AnnualReturn. Failure to do so will result in SAR Alberta losing its society status.
  • January (4 months before AGM) - close of Regular Membership Applications to be considered at the AGM.
