CHAIR’S REPORT

George M.: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

The word Intergroup means to be between and among groups. It's a wonderful idea. To be a meeting of meetings. Our mission for the last four years has been, “To strengthen our Fellows and meetings through improved communications using phone, internet, email and face-to-face events, so that we can better support each other as we strive to reach the suffering food addict.” Through that process of communication we tried to understand your needs and to meet them. I'm sure we have not done it perfectly. But as one of my favorite keys in the Little Red Book says in its Introduction "We know that perfection is impossible." That does not stop us from striving for it.

As the leadership changes from me to the newly elected Courtney G. and her Vice Chair Christine W., I know that they will be looking for better ways, with the Board and the Committees, to help and strengthen you as you strive to reach the suffering food addict. I know they will bring a new energy and imagination to the leadership of EAI and things will only get better as we all pursue God's work.

It's been a privilege and an honor to be your Chair for the last four years. I thank you for your trust and support.
