We are looking forward to watching enthusiasm for our conference to skyrocket out of here. We have already filled all 18 slots for our workshops. To those of us that have been to a past conference, please let people know in your meeting what our conference entails and how beneficial to our recovery it can be. Six weeks of meetings packed in two days is a pretty awesome experience.

Lots of "NEW" happening this year. NEW hotel location, NEW lower hotel room rates that includes breakfast to anyone staying at the hotel, and a NEW early registration benefit option, just to name a few. Click HERE to download the registration form, and please share at your meetings.

If you are not able to make it to a physical meeting due to weather, illness, or distance, you are welcome to participate in our telephone meeting. While a phone meeting isn't meant to replace a physical meeting, it's a great addition to a recovery program.

The phone meeting is held from 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Central time. Call up to 15 minutes prior to the meeting start time. Click HERE for a flyer (with the new number) and more details!

Wanted: Your Experience, Strength, and Hope!

Sharing stories of our addiction and recovery are vital for those in all stages of recovery -- newcomers and old-timers alike. GA members are encouraged to speak of their personal journeys, and share their experience, strength, and hope with others.

Choose from these excellent opportunities:
  1. Volunteers are needed to participate in the monthly speaker meetings. Click HERE for more details.

  2. The area 8A Public Relations Committee has been contacting treatment centers in our area and supplying them with information about GA. So far they have been very receptive and several of them have requested that we have members come in and share their stories.
    We are looking for volunteers with at least 6 months of clean time to speak (a person with less time can volunteer if their sponsor is present). We will be holding several workshops in the near future and you would be required to attend at least one before speaking. We are currently compiling a list of people who are willing to speak. Please click HERE for a flyer with more information if you are interested.
