MEETING HEALTH QUESTION

Attached to this report is EAI's Annual Report. We hope that EAI Contacts will make several copies for your meeting’s Literature Table. The Report tells the story of a year's invigorating and compassionate service. EAI is our Committee's work. The many members who attend in person or who call in from our 23 states and 6 countries work month after month on programs that seek to find and help the suffering food addict. This, our primary purpose, unifies us in our FA Fellowship. Please take a moment to read this document. I am in awe at the incredible amount of good work that is done by our committees. Please join us at Intergroup, either in person or by phone if you live over two hours away. The suffering food addict can use your energy and ideas in furthering our work.
Finally, please note, below, the Executive Summary of EAI Committee activity and essential action items. This has been created in response to requests from the fellowship for a condensed report. The EAI Contact need only read the material above the dotted line. The material below the dotted line is FYI and should be made available to meeting attendees on the literature table. Please let us know what you think of this revised format.
