The Tremendous Fact:

"The tremendous fact for every one of us is that we have discovered a common solution. We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action. This is the great news this book carries to those who suffer from alcoholism." (Alcoholics Anonymous pg.17)

Common Solutions Roundup - Registration

Why do I have to pay for full registration?

There are many AA/Al-Anon conferences held around the world. One of the most common misconceptions of these gatherings is that they are AA/Al-Anon meetings, and since; “There are no dues for AA/Al-Anon membership…” there should be no fees to attend. Conferences are special events, not regular meetings. They require months of planning, preparation and money to present. Since this event is held at a recreation center, there is a charge for the use of the facilities. Along with the facility charge, they require that the group purchase specific services. There are other expenses, including travel and lodging for roundup workshop leaders and speakers (This includes the roundup speakers scheduled to speak on Friday and Saturday night.) Additional expenses include insurance, the printing of flyers, schedules and programs, and postage and supplies. A large event requires a substantial amount of money.
The Round-Up is self-supporting. The costs of these services are paid partly through registration. The ideal goal for any committee of such an event is to break even; therefore, the registration fee is nominal compared to a weekend’s worth of entertainment anywhere else. Attendance is voluntary and as responsible AA/Al-Anon members, we ‘pay our own way.’
