CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

  • THANKS to everyone who helped organize and/or attended our annual Service Support Weekend. It was a joy to witness so much service in action and to see folks from so many different states unified in their commitment to sharing this program.
  • My favorite quote of the Weekend comes from someone who joined FA within the last year. She recently took on the service position of EAI Contact for one of her committed meetings, and this was actually her first time attending Intergroup. She was surprised to see so many people from her weekly meetings. Being there made her realize that there is no overarching “management” team within FA. Rather, as she observed, “EAI is us.”
  • On that same note, if you or your local service group are 2+ hours away from Intergroup and want to join our Body Meeting via web conference, please contact eaioffice@foodaddicts.org. And, of course, you can participate via conference call in the following committee meetings: Service Group Support, Public Information, or Teens and Twenties from 9:45am-10:30am EST on Intergroup Sundays. Dial-in details are listed under specific committees below and at foodaddicts.org/eastern-area-intergroup.
  • December 11 will be a robust and interesting Intergroup meeting, so I hope we will see many returning members and some new faces, as well. If you have any EAI-related questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at 857-259-7232.
  • Happy Holidays, everyone! May you end 2016 with abstinence and gratitude, as well as the never-ending gift of service. Here’s to a bright and hope-filled 2017.
