The AARP state plan for Delaware is being finalized, said Ressler, and several key positions have been created or vacated in the past month to bolster the lead- ership within the state. Several of these positions will work directly with the Leadership Council of AARP Delaware and others will be more localized to a specific ge- ographical location. On a statewide basis the group is seeking a state recruiter whose responsibility will be to enlist vol- unteers for various positions with- in the state to fill vacancies creat- ed by normal attrition or resigna- tions, and to fill newly created po- sitions. AARP is also seeking a state coordinator for training who will be responsible for training the various cadres of programs within the state. On a more localized level, there are three key positions that need to be filled. The first is a chapter spe- cialist for District III, which en- compasses the lower half of Sus- sex County from U.S. 113 to the Eastern Shore of Delaware. The job of the chapter specialist is to work with the present four local chapters helping in problem areas, meeting needs and general sup- port. The other two positions are for community council coordina- tors in both District II and District III, in Kent County and Sussex County respectively. Their task would be to assemble key leader- ship personnel in a given geo- graphical location and to help co- ordinate the efforts of that council to deal with problems or concerns of the communities it serves. "All of these positions are presently vacant and anyone inter- ested in applying should call 1- 800-897-2277, or should write to AARP at P.O. Box 371, Camden 19934," Ressler said. "You don't need to be a member of AARP to apply, and previous experience isn't necessary. Every candidate will receive basic hands-on train- ing for the position, and expenses involved in carrying out the duties of the position are reimbursed by AARP," he added. The AARP leadership council has planned a very full agenda for 1998 and is looking to further en- hance its present volunteer corps with candidates. "It is a very re- warding job," Ressler said. "I've served since 1988 and I still get excited about the program." 0 I 0 Have a Magnificent Lawn Without the Hassle utomatic tion Systems "The use of properly timed applications of water will uni- formly maintain the moisture content within the soil structure.
