In March 2019, the Board of Trustees voted toincrease the suggested meeting contribution to US $5. This decision was made to account for inflation and OA’s increased reliance on oa.org, social media tools, and other information technology to carry worldwide our message of recovery through OA’s Twelve Steps. Today, the Seventh Tradition of OA pamphlet has been updated to include the US$5 suggested contribution.
Replace your current stock of pamphlets with the new version. Download a PDF from the “Group Treasurer Materials” section of the Documents pageat oa.org or contact the World Service Office for assistance in updating your translated version.

April 23 was the day a notable game show contestant pocketed $20,000 for giving the correct response, “What is Overeaters Anonymous?”
That same day? Online searches for “Overeaters Anonymous” almost doubled from about 2,200 to 4,200! Plus, what greater introduction to our Fellowship than to reference our Third Tradition?
Let’s enjoy some gratitude for this TV boost as we carry the message!
