There was some confusion about the issue of "belonging" to more than one intergroup. So, over the past year, we did some research with OA. We have now confirmed with OA that meetings listed on the HVIG website can participate (including voting) in more than one intergroup. Meetings that are listed on our website can send meeting reps (2) and participate with full voting rights.
From the OA bylaws: c) Affiliation/Participation: 1) A group may affiliate with only one intergroup or national service board. 2) Groups may also participate in the activities (including voting) of another service body (intergroup, national service board, language service board, special focus board) with their permission.
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, an updated monthly We Care List of contacts, communications, and 22 weekly meetings.
Welcome to the New HVIG Board / Trusted Servants
Oct 2021 - Sept 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!

WOW -- Thank You HVIG Meeting Reps
50% Represented -- Great Job!
Your Meeting Voices Matter!
There are currently 22 two-hour OA HOW phone meetings represented on our site. Each meeting has two (2) meeting rep positions to participate at the HVIG (per HVIG Bylaws).
If your meeting doesn't currently have at least one HVIG meeting rep, please consider holding a business meeting to elect a trusted servant to represent the voice of your meeting at the monthly HVIG meeting.
If you'd like to learn more about the HVIG, sending a meeting rep, and what's involved, please request a call back from Susan B., our current HVIG Meeting Rep Coordiator and she'll be happy to help!
