Are you interested in creating a strong meeting?
Our World Service delegates answered a questionnaire regarding what makes a Strong meeting. Click here for that summary.
You can ask your own membership to answer these these questions and talk about making changes during your next group conscious meeting.
Question #1: Think about an OA meeting you attend regularly that strengthens your recovery, shares helpful experience and gives you renewed hope. Consider the possible characteristics of a meeting listed below and indicate if your meeting includes them. Mark “HAS” if it does, “Does NOT Have” if it is not a feature of your meeting, or Not Sure
- Growing (more members)
- Abstinent members
- Evidence of physical recovery
- Available sponsors
- Focus on OA recovery using the 12 Steps
- Regular group conscience meetings (business meetings)
- Fellowship before/after the meeting
- Represented at Intergroup
- Service positions are filled
- Traditions are followed
Question #2: Now pick just 3 of these traits you think contribute the most to making this meeting a strong meeting.
Here’s a temporary fix for you until our Dallas Metroplex Intergroup has a volunteer. Click here for the October Newsletter.

Here’s OA’s Unity with Diversity Policy:
THE FELLOWSHIP encourages and promotes acceptance and inclusivity. All are welcome to join OA and are not excluded because of race, creed, nationality, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other trait. We welcome all who share our compulsion.
THE FELLOWSHIP of Overeaters Anonymous recognizes the existence of individual approaches and different structured concepts to working our Twelve- Step program of recovery; that the Fellowship is united by our disease and our common purpose; and that individual differences in approach to recovery within our Fellowship need not divide us
THE FELLOWSHIP respects the rights of individuals, groups, and service bodies to follow a particular concept of recovery within Overeaters Anonymous and encourages each member, group, and service body to also respect those rights as they extend the embracing hand of Fellowship to those who still suffer.
THE FELLOWSHIP encourages each duly registered group and service body
to affirm and maintain the Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous
by allowing any member to share his or her experience, strength, and hope in meetings regardless of the individual approach or specific concept that member may follow. Duly registered is defined as being in full compliance with Bylaws, Subpart B, Article V.
