About Conventions

During the pandemic, as a result of the shelter in place public health order, some conventions may have moved online. Visit specific convention websites for the most up-to-date details.

Most conventions are weekend events that are hosted by an Overeaters Anonymous service body rather than a group. They are held in hotels or conference centers that can accommodate the event’s space requirements. The activities are focused on OA recovery and fellowship, meetings, workshops, speaker sessions, and entertainment, such as dances or breaks for relaxation and fun.
