I applied to be an executive director for a self help network and have now been invited for an interview this coming Friday.
I am a member of a self help group where I have also volunteered for about five years now on the executive. In the early 1990's I was also on the executive of another self help group in my city. In those days we would have conferences supported by the government. The conferences were attended by groups in our region of the province. This became a formal network for self help groups later in the 1990's and I started to attend these meeting of the network as an extra duty to my board level volunteering. I briefly served in the executive of this network. I also became the network's web master for the past few years. In the last couple of the weeks the network has been advertizing for an executive director. I submitted an application. I have now been asked to attend an interview for this position next Friday at a near by town where another of the self help groups is located. I will be required to present the concept of recovery to a mock agency senior executive meeting. I have been preparing a Keynote presentation about recovery which I will export to Power Point when I am done. The deadline for sending the presentation to the interview team is Thursday but I want to be done by Wednesday. The train ticket for Friday has also been purchased.
