1st European ACA Meeting Riga, Latvia September 26-28, 2014 

During the ACA Annual Business Meeting in Copenhagen in April 2013 there came out an idea about possible meeting for European ACA groups. Latvian members expressed willingness to organize this event. The topic of the event will be dedicated to discussion about cooperation and sharing experience between groups in different states. We will share our hope, strength and story also in ACA 12-steps meetings that will take place during the event. Please note that the members of non-European states also are welcomed. We will enjoy ourselves and our “inner” child in the party and guided excursion around Old Riga. The weather in September in Latvia is very often beautiful –it is warm and sunny, golden leaves cover the parks. We hope that the event will fulfill all us with a light of joy and hope.
