There are two places to change your meeting information:
1. This website (click here to send us a message about any changes); and

Get the word out!

Is your meeting being advertised via your host's communication media: newsletter, bulletin board, website link? For example, RWJ Rahway, Fall 2015 newsletter, "The Rose", includes our two OA meetings in their Support Groups column. It reads: "Overeaters Anonymous is a peer-to-peer group for compulsive eating disorders that uses a 12-Step program.  The group meets Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 11 a.m. in the RWJ Rahway Fitness & Wellness Center Conference Room." Ask your host how you can spread the word.
