Tonight's show previews a small part of the subject matter at The First International Alcoholics Anonymous History Conference being held September 6-7 in Portland, Maine. Many fine speakers are volunteering to inform participants on a myriad of recovery topics. Topics such as Quiet Time, the Twelve Steps, the Vermont life of A.A. cofounders Bill W. and Dr. Bob, the "Came to Believe Retreats" for AAs (founded by Clarence Snyder, medical techniques for preventing relapses, and others.
Participants must register, but admission to the conference is free.
This evening I will be covering one of the main topics--What learning "old-school" Akron A.A.'s program, technique, and resources can accomplish today. We will look at: (1) What "old-school" Akron A.A. is not. (2) How "old-school' Akron A.A. advocates are trying to enhance your recovery today by their talks. (3) What "old-school" Akron A.A. proponents today research and urge fellow-members to learn and apply. (4) Reflections and suggestions about "old-school" pioneer Akron A.A. that could help you. (5) Helpful reflections about A.A.'s diverse recovery arena. (6) Adequate A.A. teaching begins only with good teachers, good texts, good sponsors, and good speakers. (7) Your decision to work with others, carrying a helpful message about these points. (8) Suggested resources you and your cadre can acquire, study, and use. (9) My own suggestions for planning your purchases, studies, and future service and glorification of God, and service to our fellow men.
Come join us in Maine, share, learn, and pass along solid application of A.A.'s rich history today.
