OA members enjoy a special hotel rate at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, where the Convention will be hosted. Members who reserve their room early can apply this special rate anytime from August 23 to September 8 (based on room availability), which means plenty of time to tour before and after Convention.

New Podcast Series from World Service

podcastThere’s a new podcast series for 2016 centered on “Service and My Recovery.” In addition to the Steps and Traditions, each podcast explores one of the Twelve Concepts of OA Service. Podcasts are available at any time and at no charge, so follow this series to become more familiar with the Concepts and to learn the many ways service can boost your program and strengthen your recovery.
The 2016 podcasts are produced from recordings of monthly virtual workshops held on the second Sunday of every month, and OA members can also participate in the virtual workshops before new podcasts are released. See the Datebook Calendar on for the complete schedule of telephone workshops and dial-in instructions.
There’s no waiting for last year’s “Working All Twelve Steps” podcast series. Each podcast focuses on one of the Twelve Steps. If you need help working a Step, there’s a podcast for you.
