July 2016 Intergroup Meeting Minutes

Good Fine Day, Region 5 Intergroups,

Today at the Region 5 Assembly we discussed various ways Intergroups can carry the message that recovery from compulsive eating is possible through Overeaters Anonymous. We created three suggest goals that your intergroup may strive to achieve within 12 months. Lynn H from Milwaukee will be reaching out to your intergroup to following up your progress.

Here are our suggested goals: Please pick at least one, but if one is good, imagine how great 3 would be!

 1. Each Intergroup will attend at least one health fair in the next 12 months. 
     (This will pertain to groups that can absorb the cost)

2. Each Intergroup will print and post 5 “Cut and Tear” posters from the OA.Org website and post them in local businesses   such as hospitals, libraries, doctor’s office, gyms, institutions, and universities.

3. Each Intergroup will contact at least one local community newspaper to add a small blurb on OA which links readers to the website.

Finally, we would like to remind each Intergroup that the Region 5 Public Information and Professional outreach committee has $500 available to assist Intergroups in achieving the above listed goals.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Lynn @
