General Service Board

12 Concepts of Service

The General Service Board (GSB), an organization made up of EDA group representatives (GSRs) and other volunteers, generally meets quarterly on 1st Sundays (April, July, October, and January) from 1 to 3 pm Eastern Time. Our next GSB meeting will be on Sunday, January 8th. All are welcome to attend.

The purpose of the GSB of Eating Disorders Anonymous, Inc 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. Contact if you are a professional interested in serving on our Board.

If your EDA group or region does not have a General Service Representative (GSR), please 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.

See below for GSB meeting minutes and details about GSB meetings.
