CHAIR’S REPORT

George M.: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

On March 9 we had our very first Intergroup Fellowship Morning where we invited the original FA Board to share what it was like getting the program started. 178 fellows filled Barsamian Auditorium in the West Roxbury VA. We had to add chairs around the stage area to fit everyone. It created a sense of intimacy, closeness, and connection to God that befitted our theme for the morning, which was gratitude for our fellowship. The morning was very moving and spiritual, filled with humility and wonder. It is such a joy to feel grateful for our lives. And this program has given that to each one of us. It's all about service. Our EAI Intergroup provides us with that opportunity as we strive to help each other reach the sick and suffering food addict. 

Sixteen years ago, on May 31, 1998 we were 177 members in our total Fellowship. Today we are approximately 5,000 fellows and as one of our speakers said, have become a world force. Yet no matter how big our fellowship gets, the program is always about our sponsor and our sponsees. And that means our own recovery. Thank you, God.

We will be working with WSI to provide our membership with an opportunity to hear the audio recording of that morning. It may take some time, but it will be worth it.
