Purpose of the 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. The purpose of the convention is to carry the spirit of the General Service Conference to the districts and groups in Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
This is accomplished by fostering cooperation among the four groups in Ohio Areas, highlighting and celebrating the General Service Activities of AA 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 and Southeast Michigan, helping us to stay sober to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
