Conferences:

World Service Events

world-service-hands1World Service Business Conference (WSBC): WSBC serves as the collective conscience of the Fellowship of Overeaters Anonymous. Held annually in April or May, this week-long meeting is attended by delegates representing OA intergroups and service boards around the world. It is held to elect trustees, amend bylaws, adopt new business policies and provide information to delegates through presentations and workshops on issues that affect OA as a whole.

Each OA member, group and service body has a stake in Overeaters Anonymous. Conference is the one opportunity we have as “shareholders” to come together and question, chart and steer the course of Overeaters Anonymous. It is also our obligation to report back to our service bodies and groups on the current state of OA and its direction for the future.
