Professional Outreach and Public Information

Poster Campaign. Free Posters to download from WSO 

Is food a problem for you? | Is your eating overwhelming you? | Sometimes the more you eat the more empty you feel | Is your eating out of control? | “One bite is never enough.” | “I thought this diet would be different but I failed again.” | Had enough?

Professional Exhibits Fund

In 2005, the Board of Trustees created a special fund to help service bodies exhibit at health-related professional conferences and conventions that might otherwise be too costly. These events are attended by professionals such as doctors, nurses, family practitioners and nutritionists. This fund is supported by OA members’ and service bodies’ contributions. If you would like to support OA in carrying the message to large professional conferences and conventions, please consider donating to the Professional Exhibits Fund.

Click here and select the Professional Exhibits Fund in the Designation drop down menu or you may download the Mail-In Instructions from the same page and post your contribution.

Funding Available

The Professional Tradeshows Committee review applications to this fund every month, on the first working day of the month, so anytime is a good time to make an application – just make sure you give yourself enough time in advance.

Download an application form here.

In addition, a Professional Tradeshows Manual for Service Bodies is available for download. It provides over 40 pages of valuable information for service bodies participating in professional tradeshows. Topics include criteria for selecting appropriate tradeshows, budgeting for a tradeshow, organizing volunteers, and closing the tradeshow.

The Reduced Cost Literature program can assist groups and service bodies purchasing bulk literature for public information and outreach projects.  The application and instructions can be found here.
