Your meeting is free to adjust the suggested format in anyway your group conscience decides. You may use as much or as little of the format as your group wants, although reading at least One of the Twelve Steps is encouraged as it lets newcomers know they are in an OA meeting. The only firm requirement is that you read the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions and the OA Twelve Concepts of Service as they are written, to respect the group conscience of the World Service Business Conference who represent OA as a whole.
