The 58th National Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous will be in Adelaide in 2024

HEARTBREAK

After spending 2019 and 2020 planning and working hard on the National Convention to be held in Adelaide in 2021, our hearts were broken when we simply had to cancel the event at the last minute due to ongoing Covid restrictions which made continuing untenable. There were tears and shock as we voted to abandon the event we had put our hearts and souls into for so long. So it took a lot of time and space for the Area A & B committees to even consider a bid for the 2024 National Convention. But eventually, we put our hands up and were thrilled that the Conference in 2022 awarded Adelaide another chance to put on a fantastic show in 2024.


GETTING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER

Andy, our outgoing Regional Trustee, and Grant, our new Regional Trustee have wasted no time in pulling together a new host planning committee. Walking into the second committee meeting last week felt like we were indeed getting the old band back together with many familiar faces on the committee. We have a fantastic blend of alumni and new faces and we have no doubt that we will pull together a magnificent event.


PERFECT TIMING

On a personal note, this couldn't have come at a better time for me as I struggle in my 8th year of sobriety. New job, life keeps doing it's thing, I've been just FINE on one meeting a week, hahahahahaha! (Remember what FINE stands for: Freaked out, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional - well that's the one that's not too blue to put here). So, back in the centre of AA I go for another year or two. That's just the way it goes.


THE ROAD TO RECOVERY

The road to recovery is our theme in 2024 and we can't wait to welcome you all to Adelaide as we trudge our road of happy destiny. But before we get to 2024, there will be loads of fun in Adelaide in 2023 as we ramp up our fundraising activities to make our convention the best ever. So look out on the Special Events page for lots of upcoming fun. I've heard about a couple of amazing camps, some cool raffles and there's been whispers of a home group olympics competition and I'm completely intrigued.


Can't wait to see you all in Adelaide in 2024!
