Something to Consider

Is it a “suggestion” or a “must” that we not substitute the words “food” for “alcohol” and “compulsive over-eater” for “alcoholic” when our OA meeting has a Big Book study?

In Remembrance, Rozanne S

We are deeply saddened to report that OA’s beloved founder, Rozanne S., passed away peacefully on January 16 at the age of 84. Rozanne began Overeaters Anonymous in California on January 19, 1960, and fulfilled her dream that it become an international organization. We are forever grateful to her for her vision, perseverance, and love, through which so many have found recovery from compulsive eating. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones during this difficult time. Cards may be sent in care of the World Service Office. More information can be found at

New Updates to Meeting Alerts and Changes

Where did the Meeting Alerts and Changes page go?

In order to simplify your experience on, we have moved the meeting alerts, meeting changes, and new meetings notifications to the left column which appears on all pages. This way you do not have to navigate your way around to find out about updates.

As always, your assistance in notifying us of changes is important for the membership as a whole. We can only post changes if we are notified by the individual meetings. To submit a change for your meeting (cancellation, location or time changes, etc…) please use the Greater New York Metro Intergroup Meeting Change Form to submit a change. Changes and updates are added to the website as soon as reasonably possible.
