“Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or OA as a whole” Tradition 4 of Overeaters Anonymous

“Matters affecting other groups” are the business of Intergroups and Service Bodies such as National Service Boards and “OA as a whole” is the business of the World Service Business Conference. OA Region 9 provides a forum for collaborating between intergroups and service bodies within our geographical area for the collective good, for example with translations of literature into languages other than English and encouraging sponsorship and service beyond group level as a way of strengthening our fellowship.

OA Region 9 has its own set of governing Bylaws and Policy and Procedures which set out the way that we work together.
