Are You Represented?
Each OA group is encouraged to send a representative to Mid-Hudson Intergroup meetings to vote on matters affecting OA and to relay information to their home meeting.
Representatives from all groups are needed for MHIG to be of the greatest service. Please be sure that every group you attend is represented. If a group has no representation, why not volunteer?
You need not be an elected representative to come to MHIG meetings or to give service through our committees. Don't wait for someone else to do it!
