We are coordinating three phone meetings to fill the local need for continued contact. The meetings will be held at 10 AM every Monday, 9 AM every Wednesday and 10 AM every Friday morning and will be known as the OA Connections meetings.

To connect to the meeting:

There will be a rotating format:
Monday 10 AM: Current dates Just for Today and Time for Recovery readings
Wednesday 9 AM: Leader’s Choice - topic readings from Just for Today and Time for Recovery
Friday 10 AM: Leader’s Choice Big Book

Please have your copies of these books to read during the meeting along with a paper and pen in case you want to take a contact phone number.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Future meetings will need leaders. To volunteer to lead meetings, contact Sherrie. An easy to follow format and instructions will be provided.

First OA Connections Meeting - Monday March 16th at 10 AM


Q: Is there a charge for the call?

A: This is a US long distance number. Regular phone charges apply according to your long distance plan. Most calling plans now have nation-wide long distance and will not incur a charge.

Q: Is there a cost for the service?

A: This is a free service. The company providing "freeconferencecall.com" makes money by "add ons" but provides the basic service for free.

Q: Is there a code for participants?

A: Yes, be sure to obtain the access code from the meeting contact volunteer listed above.

Q: Are there limits on how long or how often the number can be used?

A: The calls can't be longer than 6 hours. They can occur anytime, as often as we need. The calls are not pre-arranged with the vendor, scheduling is completely flexible. The same number can be used repeatedly.

Q: Will my anonymity be protected?

A: Participants may identify themselves as they choose during the call in process and within the room.

Q: How do I know that other people not in our group are on the line?

A: The phone number is unique to our account. There will be audible beeps as participants enter and leave the conference.

Q: Will other people know my phone number if I call in?

A: Call attendees and hosts will not see the phone numbers. The account creator could obtain reports from the vendor of all calls with all the phone numbers.

Q: Are the calls being recorded?

A: No. This feature was turned "off" when the account was created.

Q: Should I put myself on mute when not talking?

A: You may do this if your background is noisy. You can use your phone as available or press *6 to mute and *6 to unmute.
