Meetings

Meeting List

GPI OA has about 40 meetings within our intergroup area.* Each meeting occurs weekly, is one hour long unless otherwise noted, and is non-smoking. Many meetings are wheelchair accessible; please confirm wheelchair access info with the meeting contact person before attending.

Our current meeting list is available as a PDF file (it's the top link in the gray area on the left side of this page). The PDF is only updated quarterly, so please be sure to check out our Meeting Changes section to make sure you get the most up to date information.

Please note that there is no limit to how many meetings you can attend. Many members have found that attending more than one meeting a week has helped them to get and stay abstinent.

In accordance with our traditions, our meeting list is only to be used to find meetings, not for any solicitations or other purpose.

If you will be observing an OA meeting, we ask that you first read our Observers Etiquette.

If you can’t find a face-to-face meeting in your area, or need more meetings than your area offers, consider an online or telephone meeting. These meetings can be located at the appropriate link on the Find a Meeting page on the main OA website (www.oa.org). These are a great resource when face-to-face meetings can’t be found in your area, you find yourself homebound, or just you just need additional support. You can find some additional options on our Homebound Support page.

 


Meeting Changes

Please send any meeting changes or announcements to webmaster@gpioa.org.

The printed meeting list (the PDF on our website) comes out 4 times a year, in January, April, July, and October; changes must be received by the webmaster by December 15th, March 15th, June 15th, or September 15th.

Once meeting changes are captured on the printed meeting list (the PDF on our website), they will no longer be listed here.

We offer the following document to encourage our local meetings to celebrate their milestones, since we all love a good anniversary celebration! Any special events celebrating these anniversaries will be detailed on the Events page.

The dates given in the Meeting Anniversary Document are those provided by the World Service Office. If your group needs to correct any information, please contact the webmaster.

Etiquette for Observers at OA Meetings (compiled by members of GPI OA)

The members of Greater Pittsburgh Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous welcome visitors to OPEN meetings. You may wish to attend to learn about OA to complete a school assignment, to expand your professional knowledge, or to support a loved one.

However, as per our Twelve Traditions, in particular tradition #6, Overeaters Anonymous does not affiliate in any way with outside organizations. Therefore, you may not attend any OA meeting for the purpose of recruiting people for any purpose, either for profit -- such as looking for new clients for your business -- or non profit -- such as looking for research study participants.

We ask that you observe the following courtesies:
