68th Michigan State AA Convention
October 1 - October 3
AA Conventions: Why do I have to Pay?
While there are no dues or fees for membership in AA, there are many conventions around the world and the most common misconception of these gatherings is that they are AA meetings, and “there are no dues or fees for AA membership.” However, Conventions and Conferences are special events, not regular AA meetings.
This Convention requires months of planning, preparation and money to present. Since all of the events are held at a Hotel, there is a charge to the Committee for the use of the facility.
Other expenses include travel and lodging for speakers, printing costs, postage and supplies. The event is paid for through the cost of the registration. No baskets are passed. As responsible AA members.
“WE PAY OUR OWN WAY.”
Coffee and Hospitality Rooms are primarily funded by groups and / or individual member CONTRIBUTIONS
