Online Meeting Submission/Change Form

Please use the following form to submit your online meeting for inclusion on or make a change to the OIG Online Meeting list. Contact information must be submitted for verification and future contact. No contact information will be published.

Please note that we do no validation of your submission. We may shorten descriptions to keep all the information on the screen where possible. This means that ‘Open Big Book Speaker Discussion’ meeting will probably end up as ‘Open/Spkr/Lit’. We also do not check for spelling or proper capitalization so you may see Open, open, or even oPen meetings. Please check your submission prior to hitting send. If you include a password in your URL it makes the URL very long and may force other information off the screen. Please be considerate and make all your information as short as possible.

Submitting a meeting for online listing does not automatically change the group’s status on the regular (physical) meeting schedule. The group’s Intergroup Rep or Group Contact must still contact the Central Office to change the group’s physical status.

To change your group’s physical status, please use our online form at this link:

Physical Group Add or Change form (digital)

Finally, please check what’s on the list already to avoid duplicate submissions. Mahalo!

Currently, only meetings hosted by Oahu Groups or Members will be posted in keeping with the mission of the OIG.

You must have an account with a video-conferencing provider Oahu Intergroup of Hawaii does not create meetings for you. You must sign up with a video-conferencing provider, create your meeting, then submit the link and other information to us so that we may list it.

We have had several reports of meetings being disrupted by non-members joining the meeting and then disrupting the meeting by a number of means including showing unwanted videos (unsafe for work types of videos).

Reports of Disruptions During Online Meetings

We have recently had several reports of meetings being disrupted by individuals and 'gangs' that enter meetings and proceed to take it over. There are many settings you can use to stop this behavior and protect your meeting. Both the NY Intergroup and the SF/Marin Intergroup have excellent articles on how to set up your site and protect your meeting.
