What’s new in Intergroup – March 2018
Working & Living the Program Events
March 9-11- Region 7 Assembly
April 23-28- WSBC Conference
August 18-Sponsorship Day
Friday's CJI Intergroup meeting was very busy and very productive with a smaller turnout of representatives but well over the needed quorum to conduct business. This smaller turnout was due to 4 regular members (Brenda, Sima, Mike J, Mike M) not present as they were representing CJI at the Region 7 Spring Assembly. During our meeting we discussed the WSBC Business Agenda. I am happy to report that the CJI sponsored motion welcoming those who had weight loss surgery into OA will be on the agenda. All motions were accepted except for the motions on the 3 new tools. Next month we will be again voting on the business motions and bylaw amendments concerning how we as an intergroup feel they should be adapted or not.
Additionally, we voted not to have a CJI sponsored Sponsorship Day but to encourage and support CJI groups in hosting Sponsorship Day workshops. More information will be forthcoming.
We at intergroup are here united in the desire to carry the message of recovery to all who still suffer. I sincerely hope you will join us as a group representative or visitor at our next Intergroup meeting.

This wonderful World Service event was held on Feb. 24, 2018 at St. Luke’s, Metuchen, NJ. The event was well attended with approximately 100 members unified in recovery. Jersey Shore and South Jersey Inter groups co-hosted the event. There was a fabulous keynote speaker from Philadelphia Area Intergroup and two panels with wonderful speakers from all 3 sponsoring inter groups.
