Looking for a weekend of highly concentrated recovery in 2014? Come to the 24th Annual Florida State OA Convention at Cocoa Beach Hilton Oceanfront February 21- 23. The theme this year is “Together We Can … Be a Team in 2014.” The official opening ceremony is at 7:30 PM Friday night, but workshops start at 4:30 that day. The convention will be wrapped-up at noon on Sunday.
This is YOUR CONVENTION and you make it happen! The convention offers many opportunities to provide service and reinforce your personal Step 12. In addition to meeting and workshop leaders (90 days continuous abstinence required), we need volunteers in the boutique, hospitality room, registration table, literature table, service desk, to act as a Hugger/Greeter, meeting room timer, and to sell tickets for drawings. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you cannot afford registration, consider giving service or a donation.
Registration is now open, and costs only $25 for the weekend if you register by Feb 1st
(but it increases to $35 after that date), or $30 for one day registration. There will be no refunds after 2/14/2014. There are two ways to register: on-line or by mail.
