“Carrying the Message” to Newcomers – A Virtual Event

The DC Metro Area Intergroup presents:

New Year, New Solution: “Carrying the Message” to Newcomers

WHAT: A Virtual OA Event 

WHEN: Sat., January 22 at 1:00pm Eastern Time

DETAILS: A common New Year’s tradition revolves around “resolutions” – typically around yet another diet or exercise goal. For many who are resolving to “do better” in this way, the solution may be a spiritual one and not a fad or commercial plan. This is a good time to let people know we exist and how to find out about OA. January is also a time when people who have tried and left OA reconsider and do come back. 

Hear a panel of OA fellows in recovery who will share how they “carry the message” of OA to friends, family, partners and more, and how you can make meetings more welcoming for newcomers.

Register in advance for this meeting:

Men of OA

Men of OA – You’re not alone!

Are you the only man in your meeting? Do you have trouble freely sharing in meetings of mostly women? The World Service Survey done in 2010 revealed that only about 13% of our fellowship consists of men!
If you want to connect with other men in OA, there are many meetings, by phone and in-person,
with a Special Focus for Men, as well as several other ways you can connect with men in the program.
