The Region 1 Board meets every month via conference call but our main meetings, pursuant to our Bylaws, are in person, four times each year. We decided several years ago that we wanted to reach out to our Intergroups while holding our Board meetings and that is something we plan for each year now. This year we are meeting in the following locations, hosted by the following Intergroups:
January 16-18th, 2015 - Lakewood, Washington - Pierce County Intergroup
Our Board meeting took place that morning and the Board members were speakers at a wonderful Marathon held that morning and afternoon. We are so grateful to the Pierce County Intergroup who decorated the room with beautiful balloons, anchored on each table with flower-filled pots. The topic of the Marathon was Action Plan for the New Year: One Day at a Time.
During our Board meeting we heard updates regarding the 2015 Convention in Bend, Oregon, hosted by the Central Oregon Intergroup. We are very grateful for the hard work of this wonderful part of our fellowship, ably assisted by our Vice Chair, Ruth D. The Convention group can really use your help with a myriad of tasks....some now....some in the months to come and most certainly at Convention. Please contact Ruth at firstname.lastname@example.org
March 13-15th, 2015 - Boise, Idaho - Snake River Intergroup
Our Board meeting took place in Boise, the morning of March 14th at Friends Church in Boise - this was also the location of the Marathon.
During our Board meeting we provided final approval of the Convention brochure and were pleased to hear from our Vice Chair that the organizing group in Bend has everything well in hand! It's going to be a terrific Convention!! Are you planning to attend Convention? There are plenty of opportunities to provide some service during Convention. Please contact our Vice Chair for more information - vchairR1@gmail.com. We had some additional general business to discuss and some great new initiatives! Stay tuned!!!

This is Region 1's 40th Anniversary Year! Calling all those in the fellowship who have been in program for 40 and more years! We are going to create a book of memories, celebrating 40 Years of OA in Region 1. If this is you, please send me an email and I will send you information on what we are looking for.
