CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

  • This is the final EAI report of the 2015-16 service year, and it is a fitting time to express thanks, on behalf of the Board, for all the service done by each member of this fellowship. We all depend on each other and look forward to working towards ever more help for food addicts in the year ahead.

  • Special note: as technology makes tools like visual cell phone conversations and web-based chats available to us at a relatively low cost, we continue to look for ways to engage in service efforts with FA fellows far and wide. If you are 2+ hours away from Intergroup, that needn’t prevent you from participating in important and meaningful service for other food addicts. To discuss how you might get more involved as an individual, or a member of a local service group, please contact me at eaichair@foodaddicts.org – or email any committee chair or member of the Board, whose information is below. In particular, we look forward to hearing from you if you would like to join a committee meeting or the general body meeting during our monthly Intergroup gatherings.

    Happy “New” Service Year and best regards to all!
    Courtney G., Somerville, MA
