How to help your group carry the OA Message

The Outreach Committee of OASEE Intergroup have put together a Public Information (PI) pack to share some ideas for how your group can reach out to the still-suffering compulsive overeater and help build our fellowship.
It only takes a few hours of effort each month – what simple few things can you do to carry the message to those in your community who might need our fellowship?

Statement on Abstinence and Recovery

“Abstinence in Overeaters Anonymous is the action of refraining from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours while working towards or maintaining a healthy body weight.  Spiritual, emotional and physical recovery is the result of living the Overeaters Anonymous Twelve-Step program.”

Suggested Meeting Format: Great for Meetings of All Sizes!

Check out the new format.   Does your meeting need to review their format to incorporate some of these ideas?

Recent updates to OA’s Suggested Meeting Format highlight abstinent sponsors, Seventh-Tradition contributions and Lifeline subscriptions. The meeting format now includes the Abridged Tools of Recovery, which makes it fast and easy to review all nine tools. And as always, the format contains Our Invitation to You and the list of Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. It’s a lot of program information condensed into one package.  Suggested Meeting Format
