SOAR Report July 2016 (Margaret W)

I joined the Intergroup (IG) Outreach committee at SOAR to reach out to OA meetings in the Triangle IG area to determine if they belonged to any IG and if not, if they would join Triangle IG. I determined that there are 7 active groups in eastern NC that do not belong to any IG.  (There is a meeting listed on the OA site for Pembroke but I am not certain that it is still an active meeting.)

I knew they would be small meetings so I asked how could Triangle IG be of help to them.  I suggested speakers and newsletter listings and participation in receiving newsletters.  At this point only Havelock and Oak Island have agreed to be listed.  Another group is to decide at  their meeting and I have not heard back from that group yet if they will join Triangle IG or not.

I have submitted all the information to the newsletter editor to list Oak Island and Havelock as members of Triangle IG.  I will continue to try to make contact with the remaining groups who are not members of any IG to see if they will join Triangle IG and then I will begin to contact members of Triangle IG who are not active members of IG to determine how Triangle IG can help.
