Inaugural volunteer Chairperson for SMART Recovery International

Posted by: ThereseDavall Tags: There is no tags | Categories: News


One of the fastest-growing global addiction treatment programs seeks a dynamic, compassionate, highly-networked leader to become the inaugural chairperson of an overarching international non-profit organisation: SMART Recovery International (SRI). The purpose of SRI is to provide worldwide oversight and support to SMART Recovery operations in all current member countries, and to foster the development of operations in new locations to grow SMART Recovery programs where they are most needed.

National representatives of the SMART Recovery International Board have identified the following skills sets as remaining to be filled in order to ensure the success of this important new organisation:

1. international commercial or not-for-profit leadership,
2. global information technology & digital strategy, and
3. fundraising, entrepreneurship & mentoring.

It is expected that the independent Chairperson will possess one or more of these competencies.

This voluntary role is ideal for a passionate advocate. If you’re inspired and driven to make a tangible difference in the lives of people battling addiction, helping to eliminate stigma and encourage vulnerable people to seek help, we’d love to speak with you. SMART Recovery aims to give people the tools they need to help themselves and each other to overcome their harmful behaviour and embark upon stronger, more fulfilling lives.
Commitment Involved

This is a volunteer role. This is a newly formed ‘working’ Board without any current employees, but will be supported by the above-noted Executive Directors.

Board meetings will take place online every other month, for no more two hours in duration. There would be at least one face-to-face meeting every second year, annually if revenues allow. You would also be expected to join working groups relevant to your skills.

The SMART Recovery office is in Mentor, Ohio. UK SMART Recovery office is in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. SMART Recovery Australia is in Woolloomooloo, Sydney.
