What is the OA HOW Virtual InterGroup (HVIG)?

Trusted Servants

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, and participate in world service.

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.  A minimum of one year of two-hour OA HOW abstinence is required to serve on the board.
