Elks Lodge, Goleta Ca
28th Annual AA Convention
Start Date: Friday 19 October 2012
End Date: Sunday 21 October 2012
The theme for this year's convention is "A New Freedom" taken from our book, Alcoholics Anonymous, in the forward to the 2nd edition page XXI.
"...At present, our membership is pyramiding at the rate of about twenty percent a year. So far, upon the total problem of several million actual and potential alcoholics in the world, we have made only a scratch. In all probability, we shall never be able to touch more than a fair fraction of the alcohol problem in all its ramifications. Upon therapy for the alcoholic himself, we surely have no monopoly. Yet it is our great hope that all those who have as yet found no answer may begin to find one in the pages of this book and will presently join us on the high road to a new freedom."
