What is Region 1? Region 1 is an Overeaters Anonymous service body -- one of ten worldwide geographical regions organized to help groups and Intergroups communicate within and between each Region and with OA as a whole. Representatives from Intergroups within Region 1 meet annually at an Assembly to handle the Region's business and to work with each other to better carry the Overeaters Anonymous message of recovery from compulsive eating. Region 1's purpose is to practice and safeguard the Steps, Traditions, and Concepts of Service of Overeaters Anonymous.
Where is Region 1? Region 1 consists of Overeaters Anonymous meetings and Intergroups in the Pacific Northwest of North America: the Canadian Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, and the Yukon and Northwest Territories; and the States of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
Who can help with Region 1-specific questions? Just ask! Here's a list of Region 1 Board and Committee members whose job is to help carry the OA message to meetings and service bodies in our Region. Board members are assigned to help specific Region Committees and Intergroups.
What is Overeaters Anonymous? Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions. Click here to learn more about OA.
