Courtney G., Chair:

  1. Welcome to our newest meeting in Inverness, Florida!
  2. Service Story of the Month: An FA member in Brighton, England, recently shared this story: “I have an app on my phone called Yahoo News. It gives a bulletin of about 10 news items each morning and evening. Yesterday there was an article about a well-known golfer who has admitted his addiction to sugar. At the bottom of the article there is always a relevant link to something on the web. Yesterday it was FA!!! How awesome is that???!!!!” Note: if you are interested in learning more about the WSI Weblinks, the WSI service project which focuses on getting links from the FA website onto other sites, you can inquire at
  3. The March EAI Body Meeting will include a focus on 12th Step service. Come for a sharing of experience, strength, and hope regarding supporting fellow food addicts.
  4. Thanks to all who joined the inaugural EAI Quarterly Call on Sunday, February 22. We discussed ways to nurture new and/or small FA meetings, particularly those on the frontier. Stay tuned for the announcement of the next call.
