Remote attendance of the Southeast Overeaters Anonymous Region 8 (SOAR 8) Conference is available with the aid or current computer technology. This technology can be used to videoconference as sub-committees between assemblies so that members can have the face-to-face meeting experience from wherever they may be in the Region. Another use reported by current members is that it allows for video “face to face” contacts with other OA members – some in very remote parts of the region – who otherwise are limited to phone meetings.
