7th Tradition.  Although most of our face-to-face meetings are now virtual, and may have lower or even no group expenses, our Intergroup, Region 3, and World Service still need our constant support. Most groups follow the suggested 60/30/10 split suggested by the Overeater Anonymous 7th Tradition pamphlet. After expenses and a prudent reserve, 60% of the remainder is sent to our Intergroup, 30% is sent to World Service, and the final 10% sent to Region 3, using the Donation Form.  

Effective 8/15/2020, Individuals or group treasurers may send their entire donations to the Intergroup Treasurer and specifically state that they want them shared with WSO and Region III and they will be divided according to the traditional 60% for Intergroup, 30% for World Service, and 10% for Region III.  If there is no instruction to do so, the donation will go to Intergroup only, as usual. Use this NEW Donation Form or include “60/30/10” in your note on Zelle or PayPal.

Through PayPal:  To make online donations to our Southern Arizona Intergroup, you can go to your own PayPal account and send money to treasurer@oasouthernaz.org.  Be sure to enter your Meeting Group Number or Comment in the “Add a note” field. See the Detailed Instructions – PayPal document for more detailed instructions.

Through Zelle:  If your bank is part of the Zelle network, you can send money to treasurer@oasouthernaz.org and enter your Meeting Group Number or other information in the “What is this for?” field.  Zelle has no fees.

Both Phone and Zoom Meeting lists below include a column for the Group Name & Number.  Be sure to indicate those when sending your donation.

Online donations can also be made directly using these links to World Service and to Region 3.

OA Meetings in Southeastern Arizona

Meeting List:  Click HERE to view scheduled meetings in all formats.

Virtual Meetings.  Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, many meetings have become phone or virtual meetings.  See the Zoom Meeting List and the Phone Meeting List below.  By the way, the Zoom List no longer provides the links since that was one source of Zoom-hacking.  Please contact the host for the Meeting ID and the Password.

  • Phone Meetings.  Click HERE to view the current list of scheduled meetings.
  • Zoom Meetings.   Click HERE to view the current list of scheduled meetings.  For some tips and techniques for Zoom sessions, please click HERE.  Hosting a weekly OA Zoom Meeting would be similar to having the “key” to a location to open the meeting.  Send an email to webmaster@oasouthernaz.org to become a Meeting Host.  To review what that entails, please click HERE to download a copy of the Guide.  Once the meeting has been added to the Zoom Meetings List, the host will receive a Checklist for Zoom Hosts by email.

In Person Meetings.  Click HERE to view the current list of in-person meetings.

Non-Real-Time Meetings. These meetings may take place over a period of hours or days. Examples of non-real-time meetings are email or bulletin loops, social media pages, bulletin boards or forums, and mobile applications.

Outreach Calls.  During this time of isolation, outreach calls will be an important way for us to feel connected.  Also, look into going to a non-local Phone Meeting or an Online Meeting listed on the OA website.

Check out the Virtual Region Website for various meetings, podcasts, and events.

Welcome Home!

Whatever your problem with food, we welcome you. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating (or not eating!) compulsively: overeating, grazing (eating throughout the day), restricting, throwing up or binging, whatever! Overeaters Anonymous is free. We support ourselves through voluntary member contributions.  There is hope! Many of us have found hope and no longer abuse food!

Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; we are self supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine, we take no position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

More about OA: The OA program is based on the 12 steps and 12 traditions as adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. One day at a time we use the steps, traditions, meetings, and the tools of recovery. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message to those who still suffer. Don’t worry! You are not alone. To learn more about our program and decide if it is right for you, review OA’s 15 questions and attend some meetings.
