THE INTERGROUP HAS 4 BOARD POSITIONS STILL OPEN
Please consider stepping up and being of service!
The San Fernando Valley Intergroup held the annual elections on Monday November 14th and while we had volunteers willing to step up to serve on the 2017 Board, we still have 4 positions that need to be filled. They are:
12 Step Within (Workshops) – Design and plan workshops or other events to help carry the message within our Fellowship.
Intergroup Development (Special Events) – Come up with, plan and implement ideas for special events and fundraisers to help financially support our Intergroup while having fun
Professional Outreach – Contact and help carry the message to health care professionals throughout San Fernando Valley
Secretary – Take notes at the monthly Board and Delegates meeting.
Also, a request has been made for a Co-Chair of the Public Information Committee which carries the message to a variety of public audiences.
One year of abstinence, 6 months of service above the meeting level and regular attendance of meetings are required for all open positions. If you’re interested and want to help out, come to the December Delegates meeting on Monday December 19th at 7:30pm.

OA Program of Recovery
Overeaters Anonymous offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.
OA is not just about weight loss, gain or maintenance; or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet. If you want to stop your compulsive overeating, welcome to Overeaters Anonymous.
