CHAIR’S REPORT

Courtney G., Chair: eaichair@foodaddicts.org

Hello, everyone! This is my first outreach to you in my new role as EAI Chair and I am excited to continue working with you to spread the FA message. To that end, I want to share three points with you this month:

  • On November 15-16, 2014, EAI hosts the annual Chapter, Region, and Meeting Support Weekend at the Marriot Hotel in Peabody, MA. Anyone who has attended in the past will tell you what a powerful weekend it is. You can learn more by joining the Chapter and Region Support Committee meeting in person or by phone or you can email eaichaptersupport@foodaddicts.org.

    Members with 90+ days of abstinence can inquire about financial aid by emailing: eaifinancialaidandres@foodaddicts.org.

  • Despite the blazing summer days, it is actually time to start thinking about Thanksgiving Thank-a-thons, so please be in touch with the 12th Step Committee at eai12step@foodaddicts.org by October 6 if your meeting would like to host one.

  • Finally we hope to highlight regional service efforts monthly in this report. Please email me news of particularly gratifying service being done in your area, whether individually, at your meeting, through your local service group, or in your Chapter.

Please don’t hesitate to call me or contact any member of the EAI board if we can support your efforts to help our fellow food addicts. Finally – please join me in welcoming (and maybe even visiting?) our new meetings in Charleston, NC; Hernando, FL; and Queens, NY. Thank you, everyone, for your service.
