General Service Board

The General Service Board (GSB) is an organization made up of EDA group representatives (GSRs) and other volunteers. The purpose of the GSB is to support the fellowship of Eating Disorders Anonymous. Its officers and other members of the GSB are but trustees, charged and empowered to create and maintain services that assist individuals with a desire to recover from an eating disorder to find and maintain recovery through the application of EDA principles in their lives. The GSB is a support unit for EDA and may include professionals.

The GSB generally meets quarterly on 1st Sundays (January, April, July, and October) from 1 to 3 pm Eastern Time

If your EDA group or region does not have a GSR, consider serving as one. Every EDA group should have an elected representative to ensure its voice is heard at the next level support organization. New GSRs can join 15 minutes before the regular quarterly meeting for a brief orientation. To be added to the General Service Board email list, send an email to and request to be added.
