Meeting Definitions

Open Meeting: Open to OA members and non-OA visitors. All meetings are considered open unless otherwise indicated.

Closed Meeting: Open to anyone with a desire to stop eating compulsively or anyone who thinks they may have a problem with compulsive overeating, this includes newcomers.

Special Focus Meetings: (gay and lesbian, women’s, 100-pounders, maintainers, anorexic/bulimic, etc.) are composed of individuals who feel they can more readily identify with fellow OAers with similar attributes.

Special Topic Meetings: (Big Book Study, Lifeline, Speaker, Newcomer, etc.) have a defined topic of discussion.

NOTE: Not all meetings have a Special Focus or Special Topic.

According to the Traditions, bylaws and policies of OA, the only requirement for OA membership is the desire to stop eating compulsively.
