How to Sponsor

“Uniquely useful” is how this member describes the opportunity to sponsor when she tells her OA story. After listing OA literature that discusses sponsoring, she tells what she learned from her long time sponsor about sponsorship. Topics include: what a sponsor is and is not; why sponsor; how to pick a sponsor; and how and when to become a sponsor. In addition she shares her perspective on commonly asked questions about temporary sponsorship, frequency of contact, the number of members to sponsor, when to decline sponsoring, how to treat a slip or relapse and other practical considerations of sponsoring.
