Our common purpose is to carry the message of recovery to those who suffer from compulsive eating. Our fellowship serves the needs of our two-hour OA HOW phone meetings. Through group conscience, we support this website, a We Care List of contacts, over 20 meetings, and participation at world service opportunities.
The purpose of the HVIG newsletter is to share important updates with the fellowship, and to offer a forum for people to share their experience, strength, and hope. Currently, the goal is to pubish the newlsetter once per quarter.

Welcome to the New HVIG Board / Trusted Servants
2021 - 2022
Volunteer service terms run from October through September and are designed to rotate annually. HVIG Board positions are usually one-year terms (two-year term for the treasurer) and are filled through group conscience by two-hour OA HOW sponsors. Please note that a minimum of one year of two-hour OA HOW abstinence is required to serve on the board. There are lots of service opportunities for committee work!
2021-2022 Elected Trusted Servants:
(Service Term: October 2021 through September 2022)
Currently, there are 22 two-hour OA HOW phone meetings listed on our website. Prior to the pandemic, there were only nine meetings. As per the HVIG Bylaws, each meeting can delegate two fellows to participate in the HVIG, bring ideas, suggestions, requests to the HVIG for discussion and voting. Since the HVIG's purpose is to serve the needs of the meetings, meeting reps are an essential part of our service body.
2021-2022 Elected Meeting Reps: Current as of 09/12/21
This website is supported by your generous donations and dedicated volunteers from within our fellowship. Please pray for volunteers to step forward to do service for the HVIG. Many HVIG Trusted Servants are completing their service in September 2021 and new volunteers are needed! Thanks!
