STATEMENT of PURPOSE
(The Ohio State Convention)
The Ohio State Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous is an open, annual service convention hosted on a rotating schedule by one of the four Ohio General Service Areas comprised of Area 53 – Central & Southeast OH; Area 54 – Northeast OH; Area 55 – Northwest OH; and Area 56 – Southwest OH.
The purpose of the convention is to carry the spirit of the General Service Conference to individual A.A. members of the districts and groups in Ohio. This is accomplished by fostering cooperation among the four Ohio Areas, highlighting and celebrating the General Service Activities of Alcoholics Anonymous in these areas, and through sharing experience on AA’s legacies of unity, service, and recovery.
The goal of the convention is to support and strengthen the General Service Conference structure in Ohio, helping us to stay sober to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
