Key Points from May WUIG Meeting

May Key Points

  1. Please support the Region 6 Convention by purchasing a MEAL PLAN at this link. In addition to enjoying healthy, abstinent meals with your fellows, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your meal plan purchase contributed to the cost of the meeting room rental. You can view the menu at this link.   Don’t forget to register at this link if you haven’t already.
  2. The OA Board of Trustees has just updated many formats to clean up inconsistencies and introduce a new suggested contribution of US$5 per meeting. The suggested amount had not been updated in about a decade but is necessary to keep OA self-supporting. You can view the new meeting formats at link (especially the New Reading and Writing Format).
  3. Please purchase and sell Raffle Tickets to support our Region 6 Convention.  It is the ONLY fundraiser for our Region.  6 chances to win for $5! See your Intergroup Rep.
