During the 2020 WSBC, a vacancy was declared on the Board of Trustees, specifically for a General Service Trustee. In accordance with the Bylaws of Overeaters Anonymous, the Board of Trustees may appoint a qualified member to serve through WSBC 2021. In order to best serve OA as a whole, it is important to make this appointment as quickly as possible.
A complete job description and application can be downloaded from the WSO website at https://oa.org/groupsservice-bodies/world-service/board-of-trustees/. The completed applications must be received at the World Service Office by June 1, 2020. Please let it be known throughout your area that the Board of Trustees is soliciting qualified applicants who are willing to fill the position. It is the intention of the board to appoint a new General Service Trustee as soon as possible after that date.
We are soliciting names to fill the vacancy through the end of WSBC 2021. If you should have any questions about this appointment process, please do not hesitate to contact the World Service Office.
We have set up a steering committee to help individual groups set up virtual meetings, through zoom or Facebook, and we strongly suggest that each group consider doing this as a substitute format during this time.

Remember, this pandemic is a part of HP’s plan even though we may not understand why. Our job is to continue to do our footwork, do our best, and leave the results to HP.
Let’s continue to support one another, reach out to one another, and focus on being of service to those around us.
Please continue to reach out to the board with suggestions and stories of experience, strength, and hope!
