IDAA 2009
IDAA Annual Meeting 2009


Join us at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas July 29 - August 2, 2009

NOTICE: The deadline for San Antonio tours has been extended to Friday July 24, 2009. Sign up now!

Our theme is "Willing to Go to Any Length".

The setting for IDAA 2009 is in San Antonio, the heart of Texas. San Antonio offers a blend of charm, vibrancy and color. There is much to do and we attribute it to our unique culture. When Tex-Mex meets Old West the atmosphere is rich: the river passages-colorful, the cuisine-even more flavorful, and the people-genuine. So round up everybody and savor San Antonio!

Experience the heart of the Riverwalk at Hyatt Regency San Antonio. It is the only San Antonio Riverwalk hotel directly overlooking the historic Alamo and on the Riverwalk, connecting two of San Antonio's top destinations through the 16 story atrium lobby. The four-diamond hotel includes contemporary guestrooms, the city's premier meeting and event space, Chaps restaurant, rooftop pool, Stay-Fit gym and relaxing Spa. The hotel's experienced staff adds a genuine touch to world-class amenities, making it the preferred choice for San Antonio Texas Riverwalk hotels.

As always, IDAA 2009 will feature a variety of recovery programs for all family members who attend. Sessions for AA, Al-Anon, IDAA Teen, and our popular recovery-based children's program for 7 to 12 year olds are returning to insure the most valuable experience for all ages and programs. The Ala-Twenty (and beyond) program, for "matured" IDAA Teens, has become a strong and growing component of the meeting.

New attendees are, of course, the life blood of our conference. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of our members, partial or full AA and Al-Anon scholarships are available for individuals and families in need. If you know of anyone who may benefit from the IDAA fellowship, please encourage them to apply for a scholarship on or after March 1, 2009.

The local arrangement committee looks forward to hosting the 2009 meeting and hopes to see many new and old members. Check us out and register online for the meeting. Please make your hotel reservations as early as possible.
