Philadelphia Area Intergroup (PAIG)

PAIG is the Philadelphia Area Intergroup of Overeaters Anonymous. An Intergroup is an organization made up of representatives from OA groups in this area (Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties). We are registered with the OA World Service Office.

We have a Board consisting of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. Rounding out the Board are 2 World Service Business Conference (WSBC) and 3 Region 7 (R7) representatives along with a Region 7 alternate. We currently have 1 WSBC and 1 R7 representative positions open. Contact the PAIG Chairperson if you’re interested in performing service above the group level.

The Intergroup meets the first Wednesday of every month from 7:15pm – 8:45pm ET. Please contact the PAIG Chair for meeting details.

Along with a Board, we have committees to ultimately help carry the message of OA. They include:

  • AWARE (Newsletter): the AWARE editor is responsible for putting together and creating our monthly newsletter which contains articles, resources, contact information and more.
  • Printer: the printer is responsible for all hard copies of flyers and Intergroup related information.
  • Public Information/Public Outreach (PI/PO): this committee is responsible for coming up with ideas to carry OA's message to those outside of the "rooms". This includes both the general public and the healthcare environments.
  • Speaker List: often times, meetings need speakers to share their experience, strength and hope. The Speaker List is a general repository of all members who are willing to speak at meetings.
  • Communications: the goal of this committee is to respond to inquiries and connect members on PAIG’s telephone, text, or other electronic communication channels.
  • Web: this committee keeps the website current with up-to-date information, events and the like.
