Tradition 9 reminds us that OA, as such, ought never to be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve. MetroWest Intergroup (MWI) is one of those service boards. This was written to help members understand what MWI does and to encourage member meetings to do service by participating in MWI.
Our intergroup’s goals
- Help members strengthen their personal recovery.
- Increase the number of sponsors.
- Increase the number of newcomers.
- Increase the retention of newcomers.
- Help those in relapse.
- Inspire people to give more service.
- Increase outreach and public information activities.
- Support diversity and inclusion to better serve those underrepresented in MWI/OA
What goes on at Intergroup meetings?
Here are a few of the things that occur at Intergroup:
We plan OA events, such as 12-step marathons or sponsorship workshops. Do you have an idea for another type of event? Come to a meeting and we will help you organize, plan, and even fund it.
- We work on a wide variety of public outreach, including by representing OA at the annual meetings of many professional societies. In recent years, we have appeared at conferences devoted to nutritionists, other weight-loss specialists, therapists, addictions counselors, and have even staffed booths at high school health fairs. Do you have an idea for an event we should get to? Or, would you come and help us coordinate one of the ones we already attend? Just about everyone who represents OA at one of these events finds it extremely rewarding!
- We help get new meetings started by seeding funding for rent and literature.
- Before the pandemic, meetings were in a private meeting room next to the cafeteria at Newton Wellesley Hospital, 2014 Washington St., Newton, Mass. May we meet there again soon!
Come do service and strengthen your program by attending the next MetroWest Intergroup meeting!
