OA Newcomer Retention

Westchester/Putnam OA Members,

There’s a Bill W. quote on p.105 of As Bill Sees It  that says, “Our chief responsibility to the newcomer is an adequate presentation of the program.”

That are many reasons that newcomers don’t return, but one of them is that they simply don’t understand what OA is.

The 8 1/2 minute video you’ll find on WUIG’s website (http://oahelps.org) is intended to help that.  Our goal is to urge every newcomer to view this as a supplement to the newcomer package they receive.  Go to the website and   have a look. You’ll see a link on our front page and also at the end of the video that takes you to our YouTube channel where we’ve begun posting testimonials.  https://www.youtube.com/user/OAHelps.

We urge you to urge newcomers to have a look.  It should help reduce their confusion and allow them to make a better decision on whether they want to join us.

Don C.

Chair, WUIG
