What’s a strong meeting?

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
  1. Growing (more members)
  2. Abstinent members
  3. Evidence of physical recovery
  4. Available sponsors
  5. Focus on OA recovery using the 12 Steps
  6. Regular group conscience meetings (business meetings)
  7. Fellowship before/after the meeting
  8. Represented at Intergroup
  9. Service positions are filled
  10. Traditions are followed

Question #2:  Now pick just 3 of these traits you think contribute the most to making this meeting a strong meeting.
