Intergroup Web Site

Progress continues on revamping our web site. The new “Members Share” section will enable members to share experience, strength, and hope. More developments in the coming weeks.

OA members may now submit Shares to our IG website highlighting experience, strength, and hope. Submissions should be short and follow OA traditions. Submission does not guarantee publication. Articles may be edited for readability and clarity. Submit to share4oa@gmail.com.

Sponsorship

Sponsorship is a key focus of Intergroup this year. Chair Kay R is looking for those with experience in looking for sponsors outside of a home meeting. If you have experience, please contact her at freetoday62@yahoo.com.

New Meeting Lists

The meeting list has been updated and distributed.  They are blue and dated July 2017. Old yellow lists should be recycled.
