Meeting Time: The fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm at Central Office (1000 Elmwood Avenue)
What does the Convention committee do? The Convention Committee is responsible for planning and throwing the Annual Flower City Fellowship Convention, which is a local convention here in Rochester where members of A.A., Al-Anon, and Alateen come together for food, fellowship, and a chance to hear speakers from across the country. Throwing the convention has a lot of moving parts which the committee handles, ranging from organizing fundraising and volunteers to coordinating with the hotel and creating the weekend program.
How do I get in touch with the Convention committee? You can call our Central Office at (585) 232-6720 or send us an email at Office1@rochester-ny-aa.org. Our phone line is answered twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. You will leave your contact information with whoever answers and they will forward that information on to the committee. Contact the committee chair directly at email@example.com.
What types of service work can A.A. members do at the Convention committee? A.A. members who volunteer at the Convention committee will have a variety of opportunities to serve. Just to mention a few items, they can get involved in coordinating fundraising events, finding and/or hosting speakers, helping with convention registration, setting up the hospitality room, or greeting people when they first arrive. There’s plenty of work to go around and anyone can get involved!
