VSB "We Care List"
A "We Care List" is a list of program members who have volunteered to have their contact information listed so that other (usually newer) members are able to contact members who are working the OA HOW program. The Virtual Service Board (VSB) for the OA HOW Two-Hour Format Phone Meeting maintains a multi-meeting We Care List. This list is not compiled from individual meeting lists. It is a separate list that only includes members who have requested inclusion. If you would like to be included on the VSB We Care List for the two-hour OA HOW format meetings, please follow the link below to enter your information. You can then receive a copy of the list by e-mailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Lisa in FL at 352-672-3662 Eastern Time.
