Join us in 'Fellowship in Fiji' for the THE INAUGURAL AUSTRALASIAN CONVENTION of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Featuring meetings and fellowship with other alcoholics from around the country & around the world.
At the Australian General Service Conference in 2013 it was decided that, as there were no bids to host the National Convention in 2016, we would take the opportunity to hold the 2016 Convention in a country within the Asia/Oceania zone, where there is little or no AA.
It was considered that this would assist us as part of our responsibility to carry the message to developing countries and to encourage the development of service structures.
It was also agreed that this would happen on a five-year rotational basis.
A venue selection committee was formed and several countries were considered.
The country chosen was FIJI!
There were several reasons for the committee’s choice:
There had been an expressed need for AA assistance.
There is an AA presence in Fiji.
AA has already provided assistance to Fiji by placing notices in a local newspaper and providing a mobile phone as a helpline.
Our visit is welcomed and supported by local professionals and organisations.
Join us for fun, sun, serenity and spirituality
Please support this very important ‘carry the message’ Convention.
This year we will be doing things a bit differently:
All registrations will be handled in Australia
We will not be taking registrations in Fiji
The Convention will run from
Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th
Highlights of the Convention
Public Information Meetings will be
held on Thursday 24th March 2016.
Thursday will be a special day for the General Public and the Professional Community.
On Saturday night there will be a traditional Fijian Poolside BBQ Feast, where Fijian warriors will entertain you!
