Directorate of Internal Affairs - this Directorate is mostly concerned with immigration, integration, information, and investigation. If you are a person who likes meeting new people, helping them get acquainted with the region and NationStates in general, keeping sure the community stays safe and comfortable, or writing informative dispatches like this one, then the DoIA is the place for you!
Directorate of Regional Events - this Directorate manages many of the cultural activities of the region such as events, celebrations, contests, and most importantly of all - the regional roleplay. If you are a person who likes engaging with the community, has many ideas for events (games, contests, celebrations, etc.), or an avid roleplayer who would want to help keep things running and in order, then the DoRE is your place to be!
Directorate of Communications - last but not the least, this Directorate is responsible for the publishing of CAD's regional newspaper, the Citizens Alliance Digest! Additionally, they are also responsible for managing, recording, and distributing much of the government's other miscellaneous publications and media. If you are a person who has a strong interest in journalism, writing, and making sure everyone knows what they need to know, then the DoComms is the best choice for you!
If you can't decide which one you'd want to help out in, you're more than welcome to join multiple Directorates. Who knows, maybe if you work hard enough with the people around you, you might find yourself leading one of these Directorates in the future! If you want the easiest path to get involved with the region's governance and politics, then consider joining a Directorate by simply joining our Discord server (where most of the work is done) and contacting the Director of your desired Directorate to ask if you can help around - they'd be more than happy to have another helping hand! If you're not sure who to contact, feel free to ask around the Discord server or check out this list of government officials.

Our Discord server is the place to be if you really just want to chill with us and tell us about your day. I'm sure at least one person on there would be more than willing to listen! Alot of the events also happen on there so stay tuned to the announcement channels on there!
Our Regional Message Board is another place you might consider dropping in on every now and again, where beyond the roleplay held there, you might find some members of the community who prefer chilling there than on Discord, and watch out on the main region page as well since some events are also announced there.
