 CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

  • We had robust discussions about the new Meeting Health Position at our January Body Meeting and on our January EAI Quarterly Call. Fellows shared perspectives on whether and how their meetings have adopted the role, and what additional information would be helpful as meetings consider implementing the position. We will resume the conversation at February’s body meeting. We hope you will participate in person or, if you’re 2+ hours away, join us remotely (see next bullet point).
  • Yes, the rumors are true: EAI now welcomes long-distance participants to its body meetings! If you or your local service group is located 2+ hours away from intergroup and is interested in participating remotely, please contact eaioffice@foodaddicts.org.

FA book – a reminder to have your individual meeting donate a book a month to a library, school library or doctor.  We want to get the book out in the public – you never know where the planted seed will grow.  Also – the large print FA book is now available for purchase on the website.  Also on the FA website there is a link that tells you how to catalog the book and how to present it for donation to libraries. 

Hospital Newsletters: a reminder to have FA members bring them to Intergroup and give to the PI Committee.  The intent is to get an FA article or meeting listed in the local hospitals.
