What a wonderful experience it was to attend the 2014 Annual Business Conference of the ACA fellowship and WSO. It was held on the beautiful campus of Trinity University in Deerfield, IL. on April 25th and 26th
We arrived on Friday morning, meeting and greeting old friends and making new ones. It was great to be able to put faces together with the voices of some of those who've begun in service by attending our monthly teleconferences. We were called to order at 10:03 a.m. reciting the Serenity Prayer. Laura read our ACA Traditions; Charlie read our ACA Commitment to Service. The reading for the day from our Meditation book, Strengthening My Recovery, was read by Martin C., from the UK. We then received a warm welcome from Al, of the West Great Lakes Intergroup, who wore 3 hats--literally. One hat--which was no hat, presented Al--a fellow traveler---attending the ABC for the opportunity

The repository is planned to become a central storage place for general and historical information about ACA WSO. Much of this information is currently available on the current Information Forum. The relevant information will be moving to the Repository over time, and the current forum will be discontinued once this process is completed. In the interim, please go to the current Informational Forum to view such information (there is no need to create an account or log into the forum to view this information).
