District Directors function as a conduit between the members living in the Director's assigned states and the ARCOA organization.  A District Director is an arm for ARCOA to reach its members and for members to navigate the benefits of membership.  This is a voluntary position without a defined term.

One District Director, the Liaison, is the person to whom the organization gives tasks for distribution to the respective District Directors.  This is also the person to whom Directors give the results of their communications and activities for recording and for distribution to the relevant parties within the organization.  This too is a voluntary position without a defined term.

District Directors receive tasks from the Liaison.  After completing the task, Directors report back to the Liaison who records the activities and distributes the information as needed to ARCOA leadership.  

Within their districts the Directors are responsible for promoting the activities of the Association. They are interested in the recruitment of new members, as well as in the continued interest and active participation of present ones. They welcome suggestions for nominees for the International Humanity Service Award and items of interest for The Oversea'r.

They report to the chair of Service To Our Own any case brought to their attention of a member who may require assistance . This includes anyone, who because of illness, hospitalization, or a death in the family, would appreciate a card or note, as well as anyone who because of a financial emergency might be given a grant from our fund for that purpose.

American Red Cross Overseas Association (ARCOA) is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization.
