Why do I have to pay?

Most associations like to hold conferences or conventions. However, in AA, a conference or convention is an important opportunity to share the AA experience in a broad way.
There are many AA conferences held around the world. One of the greatest misconceptions of these gatherings is that they are AA meetings and since “There are no dues for AA membership…” there should be no fees to attend. Conventions and conferences are special events, not regular meetings. They require months of planning, preparation, and money to present. Since most are held in hotels/convention centers there is a charge for the use of these facilities. Along with the facility charge, the hotel/convention center will require that the group purchase coffee and food. Other expenses include travel and lodging for conference speakers, the printing of flyers and schedules, postage and supplies. A large event requires a substantial amount of money.
This convention is self-supporting. No group monies are used to pay for this event. The cost of the event is paid through registration fees. The ideal goal for any committee of such an event is to break even; therefore, the registration fee is nominal compared to the weekend’s worth of entertainment anywhere else. Attendance is voluntary and as responsible AA members we “pay our own way”.
