Getting trampled on the road less traveled? This year's meeting will be focused on finding and maintaining freshness and vitality in our recovery. We plan to have a variety of types of AA meetings and topics to choose from with times and locations TBA.
The Al-Anon program will include meetings with a speaker/discussion format. Topics will include the twelve steps and recovery oriented information and issues. Opportunities will be available for AA/Al-Anon couples to participate in couples groups. A program that meets the needs of the newcomer and the experienced Al-Anon will be available.
Continuing Medical Education will be a separate and distinct aspect of this conference. Some current topics in Addiction Medicine, Psychiatry, and Pain Management will be presented. There are few conferences like this one that additionally offer current scientific advances by experienced, qualified, and pragmatic providers.
LUNCHEONS AND BANQUETS
A favorite part of the annual IDAA conventions is the fellowship at the luncheons and banquets.
Wednesday evening there will be a welcome reception with hors d' oeuvres in grand Ball Room in the meeting area of the Hotel.
Thursday evening is the Newcomers banquet. This is a wonderful experience for all the newcomers to be able to experience just how important they are.
Friday noon - The Al-Anon luncheon is an opportunity for all to hear current happenings with those in the Al-anon program. Also its an excellent chance to hear a peer selected speaker from Alateen.
Saturday evening will be the formal banquet. This is a very happy and spiritual time for all as many will be recognized for their service. Formal attire is most common for this affair. You'll be welcome regardless.
Last of all will be the Spiritual brunch on Sunday morning.
