Recovery Materials

Utah Soaring Recovery Materials

The following material consists of locally produced literature. This literature has been produced by the OA Utah Soaring Intergroup and in the Region. The content reflects the experience, strength, and hope of our individual members. It is not OA Conference or board approved and does not represent OA as a whole.

The material is free, but donations would be gratefully accepted. A button for your contributions can be found at the bottom of this page.

Recovery Daily Review Guide

Many members of Overeaters Anonymous find their recovery strengthened each day by doing a daily review such as the one outlined in this guide.

Here is a simple two-page format that takes you through planning out your day, reading literature, having gratitude, and ending with a review of resentments, fears, etc. as outlined in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. A great place for notes to share with your sponsor.

The guide can be printed out in any size. Use any portion that helps and leave the rest. Special thanks to AA and OA Region One for their part in developing this guide.

Strong Abstinence Checklist

The Strong Abstinence Checklist and Writing Exercise is now available from the Overeaters Anonymous World Service Office. Use this valuable tool every day to support you in keeping your abstinence strong and intact. You may also use it as the focus for meetings and workshops.

The Strong Abstinence Checklist contains the checklist, some writing exercises, and an abstinence literature resource guide.

Strong Meeting Checklist

The Strong Meeting Checklist is part of the OA 2008-2013 Strategic Plan. It is not enough to make the public aware that OA exists and can be a solution to compulsive eating; meetings have to be strong and must function effectively for people to “stay for the miracle” and for OA to continue to grow and be there for those who need it in the future.  Consider doing an inventory of your OA meeting using the checklist.

Utah Soaring Bylaws

Our bylaws are Utah Soaring intergroup’s operating manual. This document formalizes how the intergroup functions to serve the local fellowship.

The bylaws define:

  • The Service Board and how it will function
  • Roles and duties of Service Board members
  • Rules and procedures for holding meetings, electing the Service Board, and appointing Committee Chairpersons
  • Other essential corporate governance matters

To vote at the World Service Business Conference (WSBC), each intergroup must be registered as per OA, Inc. Bylaws, Subpart B, Article VI, Section 2a). The registration process requires the intergroup have an approved set of bylaws.

Bylaws are generally not public documents but making them readily available increases accountability and transparency and encourages your trusted servants to pay closer attention to them.
