ASG in a Box
To provide guidance and assist ASG leaders with facilitating their support group, UOAA has developed a comprehensive manual titled “ASG In A Box.” The information provided in this manual extends from starting a group, topics for meetings including educational webinars, creating a website and social media presence, newsletter templates and much more.
This manual is a benefit of your affiliation with UOAA and is password protected. Please contact the UOAA national office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-826-0826 to obtain your password.
Click Below to view the “ASG In A Box” once you have obtained your password from UOAA.
Each month an ASG group is highlighted in our e-newsletter to share an event, news, meeting ideas and more. If you’d like your ASG featured, please contact Ed Pfueller, UOAA’s Communication Manager at email@example.com or 800-826-0826.
