What is Intergroup?

Central Virginia Intergroup (CVIG) is the organization that supports and helps OA meetings in our area.  We who volunteer are all OA members committed to helping each of us find and sustain recovery from compulsive eating.

We keep you informed and spread OA’s message by posting meeting information on our website (CentralVAoa.org), answering inquiries on our telephone line and to our website, planning and hosting our annual retreat, organizing frequent special events like workshops focusing on different aspects of OA recovery, sending out our monthly newsletter, and providing special OA-related updates via our email list.

We also send a delegate to our regional organization (OA’s Region 7) and OA’s World Service Business Conference. Our Public Information committee gets information about OA out to people who don’t know about us, our secretary takes and circulates the minutes of our monthly intergroup meetings which are posted on our website and published in our newsletter, and our treasurer manages the money donated from OA meetings in the Richmond/Charlottesville/ Fredericksburg area to pay our expenses (web hosting, phone line, retreat center, travel expenses for our delegate, etc.).  We have a Fun & Fellowship committee that organizes social events for our members. We also are available to assist meetings with specific requests or questions.  Meeting representatives can bring concerns and suggestions from their meetings to Intergroup and take information back to their individual groups. 

Visitors to our IG meetings are always welcome.  You don’t have to participate or commit to anything.  For more information please contact Catherine W., Central Virginia Intergroup Chair, at catwry@outlook.com 434-996-6638. The next meetings will be Sundays at 7:00 PM via Zoom on July 5, Aug 2, Sept 6, Oct 4, Nov 1, and Dec 6 .  Please join us!
