MDKIG Committees

Committee Chairs are appointed by the Intergroup Chair – if you are interested, let the acting Chair know. Terms begin at the end of the January meeting. There are no abstinence requirements in the bylaws to chair a committee. Some Committee Chair positions may require special skills or experience.

You do not need to be abstinent or have specific experience to be work on a committee – just a willingness to serve! Working on a committee is a great way to become involved in recovery and get to know other OA members.
