Improving UK literature distribution: Shipping person sought

Intergroup is keen to improve the literature distribution throughout the UK and the other countries we serve. For this reason it was decided that Literature would be handled by 2 people:

  • one for shipping and handling
  • the other for the literature admin

Intergroup is actively seeking a second person, who would start off with shipping out orders to the groups and members. Are you up for it? Curious? See here for more information.
