OA is conducting a worldwide survey of our membership to improve our professional outreach and public information efforts. Service and participation from group secretaries and members is vital to the success of this survey. Here is what you need to know:
- The survey will work by random selection. Group secretaries will be randomly selected to receive the survey instructions, and these group secretaries will follow instructions to randomly select members of their group to participate in the survey.
- Group secretaries will need to check all of their email folders for the survey and survey instructions.
- Both face-to-face and virtual meetings will be asked to participate.
- The survey period will begin on Thursday, June 15 and end on Thursday, July 13.
Participation in the survey is very important, so if you are selected, make this service to your Fellowship a priority and respond promptly. Let us know how OA has affected your life. Thank you for your service!
Intergroup has been receiving a number of requests for help, especially fellow OAers who are outside of the Greater Toronto Area. Can you help? If you can please send your name and email to Outreach Committee : email@example.com

Support your abstinence, hear about OA resources, read inspirational quotes from OA-approved literature—and see what others “like”—at OA’s new social media page.
Overeaters Anonymous Statement on Public Media Policy
While Overeaters Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues, including social media, the delegates of the 2016 World Service Business Conference recommend that any OA member, group, or service body using social media for OA public information and public awareness maintain the personal anonymity of OA members.
Members of Overeaters Anonymous are anonymous. The Fellowship is not. Members of Overeaters Anonymous using social media are responsible for maintaining their own personal anonymity and respecting the anonymity of other OA members.
