New ‘Welcome’ Text Added to Suggested Meeting Formats

OA has added a new statement to the WELCOME section of certain suggested meeting formats:

“Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous; we are a growing, evolving Fellowship with in-person and virtual meetings around the world. In OA, there are opportunities for recovery and to give service at local and virtual group, intergroup/service board, region, and world service levels. We strive to provide literature and support in every language, worldwide, to meet still-suffering compulsive eaters wherever they are.”

The new paragraph was developed in recent strategic planning meetings held by OA board trustees and region chairs, and is now included in the opening remarks of four of our meeting formats:

Take a moment to review these updated formats and ask your group to consider adding the new paragraph to your current meeting format.
