Due to the uncertain times we find ourselves in, caused by the current global pandemic, AA NZ’s General Service Board took the unprecedented step early in the year to move the 2021 National Convention to an online platform. It was a decision which was not taken lightly, but at the time we felt there was too much risk to our fellowship, from both wellbeing and financial perspectives to hold the convention in a physical format.
Since making that decision the Host Planning Committee, along with Board Members, have worked hard in the background and are now able to bring you Just for Today Online.
Feel free to print the event flyer and distribute to your groups. We encourage everyone to attend for as much of the weekend as possible. There will be the usual range of speakers and topics, as well as opportunities for sharing and some breakout rooms for fellowship catch-ups.
The event will run on an online platform hosted by the Board, with multiple streams running as we would a normal convention. This will be a ticketed event and joining details will be sent out nearer the time once you have registered. It will be simple to find your way around our online rooms and we look forward to seeing you there.
There will be opportunities for seventh tradition contributions throughout the event. If you have a ticket and a spare chair reach out to someone who has no internet or computer or get your home-group together if alert levels allow.

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.
