    Newcomers’ First Twelve Days

    What is the purpose of the First Twelve Days in OA?

    Two Sessions: July 5 – 10 and July 12-17

    • To help newcomers, returning OA members, and other members learn about the OA Twelve Step recovery program by using this personal, short-term introduction to Overeaters Anonymous. 
    • To help sponsees learn how the OA recovery program might help them to stop hurting themselves with food. 
    • To help members who may be ready to sponsor but are reluctant to do so. This is an opportunity for a member to help a newcomer in a very structured way and to experience what it might be like to be a regular sponsor.

    2020 World Service Convention

    The 2020 World Service Convention has been cancelled.

    Due to ongoing public health and economic changes, the 2020 World Service Convention, scheduled for August 20-22 in Orlando, Florida USA, has been canceled.

    Refunds of registration and banquet fees will be processed over the next few weeks and will be issued in the same manner in which payment was made. Please allow the WSO staff one month to complete the refund process. For those who have made hotel reservations, the hotel will cancel your reservation and send you a cancellation confirmation.

    World Service Convention will be rebooked for August 2021 and will take place at the same hotel in Orlando. The tentative new dates are August 26-28, 2021.

    Please check oa.org for updates and join the Convention email list at conventioninfo@oa.org. In your email, include your full name, email address, state/province/territory, and country. Your information will be kept confidential to the World Service Office.

    OA World Service Meeting Transition Guidelines

    With the majority of the Fellowship transitioning to virtual meetings, including many who have limited experience with virtual meetings, we would like to offer suggestions and resources for groups to manage these transitions.

    Seventh Tradition Update: $5 Suggested Meeting Contribution

    In March 2019, the Board of Trustees voted to increase the suggested meeting contribution to US $5. This decision was made to account for inflation and OA’s increased reliance on oa.org, social media tools, and other information technology to carry worldwide our message of recovery through OA’s Twelve Steps. Today, the Seventh Tradition of OA pamphlet has been updated to include the US $5 suggested contribution.

    Replace your current stock of pamphlets with the new version. Download a PDF from the “Group Treasurer Materials” section of the Documents page at oa.org or contact the World Service Office for assistance in updating your translated version.
