Become a Connection Rep for Your Meeting

Connection Reps subscribe to connection to sell at their meeting and raise awareness of the magazine among fellow members. They also encourage FA members to write and submit their stories. To become a connection rep for your meeting, volunteer at your meeting’s monthly business meeting. If you have any questions or need further information about how to become a connection rep, please email the connection Rep coordinator at connectionrep@foodaddicts.org.

Talking Points for Your FA Business Meeting

  • connection is seeking art and articles from all those with 90 days or more of abstinence.

Helpful Tips

  • Don’t do a hard sell.
  • If you hear great sharing or qualification at a meeting, suggest to the fellow that they write it for connection.
  • If you know someone who is an artist or photographer, encourage them to submit it.
  • One-on-one chats help remind people of the tremendous service opportunity available to support the entire worldwide fellowship through connection.
