Intergroup Monthly Meeting

The Blue Ridge Intergroup’s purpose is to encourage unity among all it’s meetings/groups. Intergroup serves as a forum to exchange of ideas, serve the needs of member groups, and to carry the message of OA to the compulsive overeater who still suffers.

We do this by:
— Keeping with OA’s guidelines for meeting.
— Serve as a central communication hub for all NBR Groups.
— Conduct various events, within OA set guidelines, that help further the goals of the Intergroup and individual NBR Groups.

When We Meet

Monthly: We meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Usually at 9:30 am, prior to the Saturday meeting. Note: There are sometimes modifications to this date/time based on individual or group conflicts or needs.
