This is Dick B. speaking to you from Maui Hawaii. And this evening's show will tell you the latest highlights of "The First International Alcoholics Anonymous History Conference" being held September 6-7, 2013, in Portland, Maine, at The First Baptist Church of Portland Maine, located at 360 Canco Rd in Portland.

We have a special Web page for the conference. It can be seen at http://mcaf.ee/ghcky. My son Ken B. and I will be in Portland, Maine, staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Portland Airport at 145 Jetport Blvd. in Portland from Thurs., Sept. 5, to Thurs., Sept. 12. The main events of the conference will be held Fri.-Sat., September 6-7. Ken and I will also meet with individuals or groups between Sept. 6 and Sept. 12 to  discuss the many topics I'll mention in this show. We have found that special meetings in our hotel lobby, hotel room, restaurants, and other convenient places can often be the heart of and the most productive part of these conferences. They allow for personalized questions, comments, suggestions, discussions, and planning on our three major focuses as historians and authors of Alcoholics Anonymous History and A.A.'s Roots in the Bible. Please contact me at DickB@DickB.com and arrange in advance for convenient times and places for such Portland meetings.

Main historical focuses will be on: (1) The 12 Steps of A.A. (2) A.A. Origins, History, Founders, and Facts. (3) Sponsorship Today. (4) Orienting and informing newcomers. (5) A.A. History Past, Present, and Future.

And now for more conference details which we hope will encourage you to attend, participate, speak, and even bring exhibits. Following are many possible subjects where you may have experience and expertise that will help recovering newcomers today.
