Our Invitation To You

Signup to lead a meeting here using Signup Genius

Western NY OA Meetings are now Available Through Zoom, a phone and video conferencing program, available for your computer, Android,  iOS device, or Kindle Fire HD.  Regular dial-in numbers are also available for those who wish.

How it works:  Everyone sits in a (hopefully well-lit) room with your laptop, smartphone, or tablet, and when you launch the app at the designated time, you’re all connected just as if you’re sitting in one room together.  Participants can see and hear each other, and those dialing in will be able to be heard and hear everyone else.  It is advised that if you’re using your phone that you’re in your favorite WiFi area, if you’re not connected to WiFi, you will be using your data, and don’t want any big surprises when your bill comes!  You do not need to register for a Zoom account, and there is no fee, other than for the Host, and that is what the Seventh Tradition is for.

Meeting times are the same as the regular Face-to-Face meetings, the room opens ½ hour before the meeting starts, and remains open for a total of three hours.

There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations.

OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues.

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive overeating and to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer.
