QYPAA CONVENTION COUNTDOWN

    QYPAA stands for Queensland Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous. We are a committee of young AA members enthusiastic about our recovery. We aspire to host an annual convention in Queensland as a celebration of recovery, unity, and service. QYPAA is all-inclusive, never exclusive or forbidding. QYPAA is a convention hosted by young people, for the fellowship as a whole. Attendance is open to all persons concerned with a drinking problem irrespective of age. QYPAA is a subcommittee of Area C North-Eastern Region and, as such, we are responsible to the fellowship as a whole. We endeavour to be a self-supporting committee, with any surplus funds directed back into the fellowship through Area. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

    "Trudge the road to Happy Destiny"

    This year Al-Anon will be hosting a program of meetings alongside the 2021 QYPAA convention!
    See below for further details...

    ‘The word “relatives” designates not only those related by blood, but any of us who have had a relationship of some sort with an alcoholic. Regardless of personal creed, economic status, sexual orientation, or religious background, anyone who has been affected by another’s alcoholism is welcome in our fellowship.’ – How Al-Anon Works – pg. 111

    Children are welcome at all Al-Anon meetings
    we’re called the ‘Al-Anon Family Groups’ for a reason!

    ~~~

    For this convention QYPAA and Al-Anon have worked together on a programme more closely than ever before. We decided that, even though we’d have completely separate meetings, we would have the same meeting topics so that families and friends who attend together will have an ‘apples to apples’ comparison of the similarities, and the differences, of the two programs.

    This is a new concept for us,
    we welcome any feedback that you may have.
