It is with sadness and after a great deal of discussion that the New Zealand General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous must announce that we have had to cancel the 2021 Convention for the first time in the history of the convention.
The financial risks associated with running the convention next year were considered too great for our fellowship to weather at this time.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2022 Convention in Rotorua.
But for most members of A.A., living sober is really living – a joyous experience. We much prefer it to the troubles we had with drinking.
