Recently, the delegates at OA’s World Service Business Conference (WSBC) 2010 adopted a motion that created a ninth tool called “Action Plan.” The Conference Literature Committee is working on a definition that will be presented for adoption to WSBC 2011. Until that time, OA members are free to interpret “Action Plan” as they wish.
Beginning 03/29/10, a new writing and discussion meeting will take place on Mondays, at 7:30PM, at the First Congregational Church, 2101 State Street, Santa Barbara.
