See What’s New on the OA.org website!

WWW.OA.ORG

    Our website is now mobile friendly! Here’s what else you need to know:    
    The home page is for the still-suffering compulsive overeater, directing them first to the Fifteen Questions and Find a Meeting.
    The Members section supports program work with resources, information, and inspiration. The Members section also includes pages dedicated to relapse prevention and recovery.

    The Groups/Service Bodies Section Supports OA Business so that we can easily find supporting documents and helpful guidelines to conduct meetings and other OA business.
    Click the Menu button to explore unique menus for each section of the website: Newcomers, Members, and Groups/Service Bodies.
    With our new site, OA is ready to attract newcomers from around the globe and help strengthen recovery for compulsive overeaters and those with compulsive food behaviors.

Iced in? Find fellowship with phone and online meetings!

Frozen Road

Getting to your regular face-to-face meeting for hugs and fellowship may be challenging (or impossible) this weekend. But fear not because it is still possible to connect with your fellows near and far by calling in to a phone meeting or joining an online meeting.

Information about phone and online meetings can be found by using the “Find a Meeting” tool on the oa.org website.

Ours is often a disease of isolation and together we get better so reach out!

Frozen Branch

Stay safe and warm everyone!

 

Calling all votes!

The next World Service Business Conference (WSBC) is coming up in May 2016 in New Mexico. The WSBC is where members’ voices can be heard on topics ranging from the wording of the policies and bylaws to the use of social media and virtual meetings. Now is the time that votes from individual meetings are being collected to inform the upcoming business meeting’s agenda.

All meetings are encouraged to review the items up for consideration, gather members’ votes, and report them back to our Intergroup’s WSO representatives. Items to be voted on can be found here:   Bylaw Amendments , New Business , Questionnaire Summary

Once your meeting has reviewed and voted on the proposed items please email the results to: updates@triangleoa.org by Saturday, February 13th, 2016. 

For information about the WSBC, please visit: https://www.oa.org/world-service-events/world-service-business-conference/
