GREATER NEW YORK METRO INTERGROUP is the service body which provides this website, prints meeting lists, sponsors local events and more…
FACT: Greater New York Metro Intergroup has about 100 meetings listed with World Service, but only about 30% send a representative to the monthly Intergroup meeting.
MAKE SURE YOUR MEETING HAS AN INTERGROUP REPRESENTATIVE
IG Reps attend the monthly intergroup meetings (2nd Thursday of each month) where they participate in discussions, and vote on decisions about how the intergroup is run and hear announcements about the NYC-area meetings and fellowship. Full participation from all meetings means a more unified and robust governing body, which means a stronger NYC-area fellowship, which means more recovery for everyone! IG Rep should be one of your meeting’s service positions with either a 3-month or 6-month term.
FACT: One out of every three meetings in New York City contributes nothing to Intergroup.
DONATE TO YOUR INTERGROUP
Your meeting donations go towards the important task of running the intergroup. IG donations goes towards critical things such as: outreach (both in and out of the program), maintaining this website, printing of meeting lists and the Metro Memo, plus much more. Donations of any size are welcome. The best way to donate is online (click on the “contributions” tab above and you will see instructions).
FACT: Meetings which do not have current meeting contact information with World Service risk being removed from the meeting list.
MAINTAIN A CURRENT MEETING CONTACT
This one is especially important for the newcomer. Each meeting has a contact name and phone number listed on oa.org, and this is often how newcomers get info about going to their first meeting. To see who your current contact is, go to the World Service website (oa.org), click on “Meetings” and then “Find a Meeting,” search for your meeting and then click “Open Details.” Your contact should have a working phone number and be willing to return calls with questions about the meeting in a timely manner. To change your meetings contact information, simply select “Edit a Meeting” in the “Meetings” menu and update the information. Groups without a current conact are at risk for being removed from the NYC and World Service meeting lists without notification.
