Central Virginia Intergroup Opportunity
Central Virginia Intergroup is the organization that meetings in our area support with our meeting contributions. Our intergroup has several officers and committee chairs who give service by organizing things our intergroup provides--a website, a phone line, an annual retreat, frequent special events focusing on different aspects of OA recovery, a monthly newsletter, a weekly email update. We also send a delegate to our regional organization (OA Region 7) and OA's World Service Business Conference. We have a Public Information committee that gets information about OA out to people who don't know about us, a secretary who takes and circulates the minutes of our monthly intergroup meetings, and a treasurer who manages the money taken in from the OA meetings in the Richmond/Charlottesville/Fredericksburg area and distributes it to cover our expenses (web hosting, phone line, retreat center, travel expenses for our delegate, etc.) We have a committee devoted to Fun & Fellowship that's supposed to organize social events for our members, but there's no chair for that committee right now--are you looking to give some service?
Each meeting is supposed to have a representative who attends our monthly online intergroup meeting. Does your meeting have a representative? It takes only about an hour a month, and we always send out instructions about how to dial in to the monthly meeting, or to join it online via the Zoom app. If you need some help with the technology, we can provide you with that! Representatives bring the concerns of their meetings to Intergroup and take information back to their groups. It's a wonderful service to give. Has your sponsor been prodding you to make a service commitment?
We'd love to have you join us at our next Intergroup meeting, which will be on Sunday, May 5 at 4 pm. Please call me if you want to know more.
