Please help DMI and your recovery through service

A few announcements from your humble intergroup. Please share at your meetings as you feel led.
  1. DMI is in desperate need of people to participate in the management and leadership of the group. Essential work is going undone because of open positions. If you or a sponsee or a recovery partner has at least 90 days of abstinence, please prayerfully consider participating in this vital service. Remember that it is by DOING service that we learn HOW to do service. If you doubt this, remember that I am only learning how to be the Chair by doing it awkwardly… but with sincerity. If you appreciate having an intergroup that puts on an annual convention, maintains a web presence, and publishes a newsletter, please please please help us find the personnel to support these services.
  2. The convention registration brochure is now available. We hope to see you there, February 27th through March 1st, 2015! In addition, the convention planning team is in need of many different kinds of service, both for preparation and for on-site opportunities… and there is no abstinence requirement on this level of service!

Grateful as always for the miracle of OA, which not only saved my life but helped make it worth living. Having had that spiritual awakening as the result of working the steps, I am honored for the opportunity to serve you all in helping to carry the message to other compulsive eaters.
Yours in service,
Kay Seitz
