Our theme this year is taken from the NA Basic Text, page XV (“Our Symbol”).



NORVANA is honored to present the 33rd Chesapeake & Potomac Regional Convention of NA. We want to personally welcome each of you. This is an exciting convention which, as the passage from our theme states, “continues to grow in unity and in numbers”.
Our theme also reminds us of the simplicity of our program and that the one promise NA offers is Freedom from active addiction.
We hope you will have a great time and take from this convention knowledge and inspiration for your continued recovery. We are blessed by the opportunity to serve. Thank you for attending!
