How Do We Welcome Newcomers?

I have been thinking a bit about how we welcome newcomers. So I am wondering: what can I do to "extend the hand and heart of OA" to others who share my compulsion? What made me feel welcome and stay? I have a few ideas, and thought I would jot them down and share them, in case you would like to try some of them. What other ideas do you have? 

Maybe the most important ones....

 And anything else is a good idea too!
