Happy Thanksgiving to all, belated to my Canadian friends,
Having not been impeached I find myself in a position to report our experiences at our conference in Vancouver last month.
Wonderful is a start. Great venue, great food, great hotel but most of all great people. Our hosts, our attendees, those we met with CoLAP….thats what makes these gatherings so great. It is always the people, most of us in recovery, all of us there to help ourselves and others. Great AA, speakers, meetings, networking, its all there. We are lucky to gather annually, which segues me nicely to Kansas City !0/20-10/22, 2017.
There were great sites and scenes in Vancouver and I am sure there will be great things to do and see in KC, but the best part of all is the gathering of the herd and the continuation of the fellowship. I can’t put into words the power of the network we have throughout the States and Canada, not only can we see and help each other wherever we go, we can provide the newly recovering lawyer great hope. All this and good clean fun.
I hope we attend the CoLAP dinner on the Thursday evening before our gathering and perhaps put together an evening with entertainment like we did in Nashville…..no matter what we need your attendance and support. My stated mission is to have more first time attendees than ever before. It is up to us, we need to continue to grow.
We will work to make 2017 as affordable as possible, and remember we have scholarships available thanks to your donations.
Your Trusted Servant, Tim Foley.
