DAA UK World Convention and Conference Committee

 

Dear DAA USA Members,

 

We would like to invite you to the first Drug Addicts Anonymous World Convention and Conference, taking place in London, England on October 28 & 29, 2017 (please see attached flyer for details).

 

This weekend is titled Into Action: Creating the Fellowship We Crave, and is jointly organized by DAA committees in England and Sweden.

 

On Saturday October 28th we will share fellowship and experience at a convention featuring Chris R as keynote speaker, along with other DAA speakers from around the world.

 

This will be followed on Sunday October 29 by a conference, which aims to explore what the future might hold for DAA and to establish channels for effective international communication.  We hope to bring together as many DAA members and groups as possible for the second day of the event.

 

So, as well as inviting you to attend, we want to ask you and your group what the conference’s discussion points should be.  What do you think DAA members from around the world should be talking about when they get together around the conference table later this year?  We welcome all suggestions, practical or spiritual (as we all know, they amount to the same thing!)

 

Ideally, we’d like to get in touch with as many DAA groups as we can – so if you know of a group we haven’t contacted, please forward them this email.  The idea is to reach a consensus before the conference begins about the most important issues facing our fellowship.  Discussion points might include:

 

  • Establishing international communication
  • DAA literature
  • The date and location of our next conference
  • Building DAA groups in non-English speaking countries
  • A world service structure

 

But these are only suggestions – no doubt there are other topics you and your group will want to address.  Please give us your input even if you aren’t able to attend in person; doing this will help provide the conference as solid a foundation as possible.

 

You can email your suggested discussion points or topics to london2017@daa.nu  - we will try to cover as many of these as possible at the conference.  Minutes will be taken and a detailed summary provided to all groups.

 

We really hope you’ll be able to make it to London in October!
