               Official RAC Field Organization Appointment Description  


Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator (ASEC)  

  1. The Assistant Section Emergency Coordinator (ASEC) may be appointed to a two-year term by the Section Manager, or by the Section Emergency Coordinator if that authority has been delegated by the SM.  The ASEC may serve as a general assistant to the Section Emergency Coordinator or as a specialist. That is, the ASEC may assist the Section Emergency Coordinator with general leadership matters as the SEC’s alternate, or the ASEC may be assigned to handle a specific important function that does not fall within the scope of the duties of the SEC’s other assistants.  The ASEC will act as the SEC in the latter's absence or in emergency response operations to maintain continuity of leadership when 24-hour activity requires multiple shifts.

2.  At the Section Manager's discretion, the ASEC may be designated as the recommended successor to the incumbent SEC in case the SEC resigns or is otherwise unable to finish the term of office.

3.  The ASEC should be familiar with the "Official Appointment Description for the RAC Section Emergency Coordinator," which contains the fundamental responsibilities of the SEC.

4.  Assistant Section Emergency Coordinators are encouraged to complete the RAC Certified Emergency Coordinator course.

Requirements: Basic with Honours or higher Amateur Radio qualification; Full RAC membership.
